BOARDMAN | Trustees meeting
Trustees met Monday and did the following:
Authorized Administrator Curt Seditz to petition county commissioners to officially change the name of the street referred to as Jeanette Drive. A resident did research on the street and found that it was originally Jenette Drive, without the A. Most residents in the area said they wanted the street name to remain Jeanette Drive, as they have known it for decades. To keep the Jeanette spelling, an official name change must be done. Road department Superintendent Gary Dawson estimates that the entire process will cost about $150.Authorized the purchase of equipment through the state cooperative purchasing program, including one 3/4-ton pickup truck from 32 Ford Mercury Inc. of Batavia, Ohio, for $23,150; two 1-ton dump-truck cabs and chassis from 32 Ford Mercury for $39,024; one Case 721D wheel loader through from Southeastern Equipment Company of Cambridge, Ohio, for $108,212; and one coupler system for the Case 721D wheel loader from Southeastern Equipment Company for $9,367.Authorized the purchase of a replacement computer for the fire department from Dell Government Direct of Austin, Texas, for $1,663.Authorized the reupholstering of chairs at the main fire station for $1,210.Authorized the purchase of ammunition for the police department from Matre Ammunition of Seven Mile, Ohio, for $11,846.Authorized payment not to exceed $40,000 to the Boardman Local Schools as the township's share of the operating cost of Channel 19.Authorized renewal levies of 3.2 mills and 0.30 mills to appear on the May ballot.
