LIME CITY - Roads, ditches and recycling were on the minds of the Perrysburg Township trustees Wednesday night.
The board approved an upcoming ditch cleaning operation of White Road, running from River Road to the Ohio Turnpike Overpass. Maintenance Director Kraig Gottfried said that a resident of nearby condominiums there had requested the cleaning.
"A lot of standing water in the ditch," agreed Trustee Bob Mack.
The board also heard that the annual Recycle Roundup will be Saturday, at the Maintenance Department, across the road from the Township Building, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Two 53-foot trailers are brought in for the purpose, and shredding will also be offered on-site. Some items, like TVs, will be accepted for a fee. The event, held in cooperation with Solid Waste of Wood County and the City of Perrysburg, drew more than 500 individual vehicles to the site last year.
In other business, the board:
â€¢Â Â Â Approved a $3,000 purchase of sealant from DJL Material and Supply for upcoming roadwork.
â€¢Â Â Â Approved a $27,446.50 purchase of a 2013 GMC Sierra from Ed Schmidt Auto Group for the Maintenance Department. The vehicle will replace a truck with more than 143,000 miles on it.
â€¢Â Â Â Approved a $3,000 fee payment to the Wood County Port Authority. The board members noted that the payment has been decreasing in recent years.
â€¢Â Â Â Announced that the township has received a loan from the Ohio Public Works Commission for $296,600, for resurfacing work on Five Point, White, and Reitz Roads. The amount of the loan is capped at half of the project cost.
â€¢Â Â Â Approved a license agreement with Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, on Carter Road, allowing them to build a walkway that slightly encroaches on the nearby New Belleville Ridge Cemetery.
â€¢Â Â Â Recognized Elsie Hetman, a township resident who is stepping down from her seat on the Board of Zoning Appeals after 15 years.
"I enjoyed it, I really did," she said of her time there.
