LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township Trustees voted Wednesday to sell two small parcels of property at the intersection of Roachton Road and Apex Lane.
The parcels total just .167 acres and were transferred to the township in January 2012, according to information on the Wood County Auditor's website. Township Administrator Walt Celley said the land was forfeited to the township and was being sold for $700 to someone interested in building a home there.
"It's my opinion that when we have property, our goal should be to not spend a lot of money taking care of it, that we should own it for as short a time as possible. And maybe this is an example of something we've probably owned too long," said Trustee Bob Mack.
"Once they buy it then it gets back on the tax rolls, and hopefully it gets developed."
Mack suggested a section of the township's website could be dedicated to selling property and equipment more quickly.
"When we're selling property, we should be making it available to everybody on planet Earth," Mack said.
Trustees also approved an official policy regarding use of township credit cards, which came at the request of Shirley Haar, fiscal officer. The resolution outlines authorized expenses and how employees should react to loss or theft.
Also approved Wednesday were:
•    A $14,160 contract with Gerken Paving for repairs to Eckel Junction Road.
•    Replacement touchscreen monitors for the police and fire departments costing $1,887.50, and sniper rifle equipment totaling $897.
•    An increase to prior purchase orders for computer equipment.
