PERRYSBURG - A joint meeting of Perrysburg Township Trustees and City Council to discuss Fort Meigs Union Cemetery business was held Tuesday evening.
After convening, the meeting adjourned to an executive session regarding the potential sale of cemetery land. The session lasted 45 minutes.
The land in question includes a number of parcels located in an area bounded by Eckel Junction Road, West Boundary Street and Indiana Avenue.
Speaking later than evening, council member Maria Ermie noted that the session was called because there are several individuals interested in purchasing some of the parcels of land. The sale of the parcels would be used to help pay off a loan made to purchase 22 acres several years ago.
Ermie stated the decision that no action regarding the sale of the land was needed at this time and the Cemetery Board will continue to research sale opportunities.
An emergency ordinance to authorize the Cemetery Board to initiate bidding on some of the properties was removed from council's agenda.
In other business, the joint meeting:
¥ Approved the cemetery's 2011 budget of $512,636.
¥ Approved the reappointment of Robert Warnimont to the Cemetery Board.
¥ Approved the continuation of the 0.32 property tax inside millage used to fund the cemetery.
