Canfield Township up a creek looking for fixes

Canfield Trustees continued to look at and discuss the Indian Run Creek area and ways to help ease the flooding and damage in that area.

"There is a lot of silt build up in the creek from the May storm," said Township Administrator Keith Rogers. "We also have a beaver dam on the channel that has made a nice pond [in the Pebble Beach area]."

Trustee Brian Governor said the creek needs cleaned and he suggested starting at the beginning and working downstream. Rogers said the first step is to remove the beaver and get the natural flow going again.

"It is probably going to take a couple years to dig this out," Governor said.

Trustee did approve a resolution for Craig Edward Susany, Inc. to perform the necessary work in the Indian Run detention area to remove the mounds of sediment that has accumulated and prohibits the natural flow of water through the system. The work is not to exceed $8,500.

Rogers also reported a 48-inch storm sewer that is 70 feet long that collapsed in that storm. He said it could be covered under a grant that could fully fund the project. He said the township is currently working on a study for it.

On a different matter, Trustee Marie Cartwright asked about the removal of pods at the Colonial Motel that are an eyesore. Rogers said there is a court hearing on Aug. 16 concerning the issue.

In other business:

Trustees approved submitting an application to participate in the Ohio Public Works Commission 2020 paving program.

Approval was given to purchase and maintain a SSL certificate for the township website so it will function as a "secure" site for visitors.

Approval was given for Intertek-PSI to perform wetland and ecological services for the proposed Robert H. Neff Memorial Bike Trail.

Trustees approved up to $1,300 for Lynn Welding and Mechanicaal Service LLC to repair the radiator, two brake cylinders, and rebuild the clutch fan on the township's Truck 206.

Warrants totaling $94,543.77 and purchase orders totaling $203,698.77 were approved.

Approval was given to advertise for bids for the Fairway Drive-Pheasant Run-Cedar Park road repair project.
