WHAT: Township trustees meeting May 14

PRESENT: Tom Frost, Alan Hemphill and John Jakubec


• Received a three- year, $1,716 contract quote from Cummins Sale & Service for generator repair services. Hemphill suggested they wait until they can get more quotes, as the quote did not have any details in it.
