LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township Trustees voted Wednesday to participate in a mutual traffic study to consider installing signs or signals at the intersection of Roachton and Hull Prairie roads.
Cost of the roughly $5,700 study will be split between Wood County, the city of Perrysburg and the township. The shares have not been finalized, but trustees voted to contribute up to 25 percent.
Rob Black, a member of both the township's zoning committee and Wood County Planning Commission, spoke in support of the project. He said several residents have requested a study following a seemingly high number of traffic crashes at the intersection.
Separately, the group discussed a purchase order of nearly $14,000 to install a keyless entry system on all external doors of the police department, similar to the system already in place for the fire department. Trustees tabled the matter to consider simultaneously installing such a system in the township offices.
Chief Mark Hetrick informed trustees that a new police officer, Donald Widmer, will begin work Oct. 7, earning $26.43 per hour. A vacancy was created by the upcoming retirement of Lt. Jim Pellek.
Trustees bumped up their upcoming meeting to 5 p.m. Wednesday, as a meeting of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources will be hosted there at the normal meeting time of 6 p.m.
The subject of the ODNR meeting is a permit for a proposed surface mining operation, requested by Wylie and Sons Landscaping. Township officials have expressed concerns about damage to nearby roads and other aspects of the business.
Trustees met in executive session to discuss police and fire collective bargaining, police personnel hiring, and sale of real property, with no action following.
