Thanked us for passing the levy!

Also brought copies for our 5 year Fire & EMS Agreement which we need to review and sign.  They provided a map showing the district they cover and the district Monroe Township covers.

John Hower, Reinhart Insurance

Provided summary of coverage and reviewed changes with us.

We added:

  • Coverage for the Road Grader
  • Coverage for the Salt Building
  • Uninsured motorists coverage

He will send us an updated policy before next meeting.

  • Township Roads Report

Bradd was not in attendance.

Riley Road ditching has improved.  The phone company has been contacted multiple times about moving the phone line.  Riley Road, South Lafayette, Hankinson Roads potholes have been patched and filled.

There will be a bill for equipment repair coming – the hood of the mini hoe has damage.  We will be replacing the entire hood and this will happen later in the year.

Jeff shared that we need electric and lights in the salt building.  Jeff will get some information about lights he already has and give us an update next meeting.  We also need to wrap the edge of the tarp with boards and staple to the side to prevent the flaps tearing.  Jerry will look into this.

  1. Township Zoning Report

Larry provided his report for the month and it is in the township records.

We will receive further information for a cell tower at 5807 Loudon Street across the street from the golf course.

We have received questions regarding providing stone on alleys near Dutch Lane.  Larry will reach out to the engineer’s office for further instruction as we would like to vacate any open alleys in McKean Township.

Next week Dannette, Jared McLaughlin, Bill O’Neill, and Larry are attending a meeting at the Planning Commission next week to provide direction for our Zoning maps.  The Comprehensive Review board meets the 22nd.

The McKean Township website has been down since the prior WebMaster went out of business.  We should be operational by next meeting according to David Schwartzenberger, our new WebMaster.
