EMERGENCY SERVICES Liberty Twp. to consider taking on Girard 911 calls



Published: Fri, January 7, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



Police officers got 3 percent pay raises in a one-year contract.

LIBERTY -- The township and Girard city officials are to meet today to discuss possible terms of use of Liberty's 911 service by Girard.

Liberty Township trustees authorized township administrator Pat Ungaro on Monday to meet with Girard Mayor James Melfi and attorneys to discuss how Girard's 911 service could be assumed by Liberty.

"There are a number of legal and technical things that need to be worked out," Ungaro said. "I think it's a benefit for both sides, with cost savings to us and to them."

If the agreement is reached, all 911 calls to Girard's police and fire departments would be answered by the Liberty 911 call center, which would then dispatch safety forces.

Officers elected

The trustees also elected officers for 2005 at their re-organizational meeting Monday. Jodi Stoyak will serve as president and W. Gary Litch was elected vice president.

During the regular meeting, township trustees directed the police department to look into leasing five patrol cars through the state of Ohio master lease program or the Ford Motor Co. lease program, whichever provides the township with the greatest cost savings.

Cost of either program is not to exceed $110,000 over five years, and the township would have the option to buy the cars for $1 at the end of the lease.

Salaries increased

After an executive session, trustees voted to approve a one-year contract for police officers. Officers at the rank of captain, sergeant and patrolman received 3 percent raises. The dispatcher's contract was approved at a 3.5 percent raise.

Trustees also reappointed Michael Durkin as fire chief at a salary of $57,574, a 3 percent increase.

The board set 7 p.m. on the second Monday of each month as its meeting time, with a 6:30 p.m. caucus preceding the meeting.
