Trustees hear zoning complaint

Township resident Kirk Bunch addressed trustees regarding a neighbor whose home business is causing a situation on South Palmyra Road.

"My neighbor is running an auto body shop and at first was just for auto mechanics," Bunch said. "Now he is painting cars and I am tired of smelling it."

He asked if the township could get involved and help solve the problem.

Also attending the meeting was Township Zoning Inspector Traci DeCapua. She wouldn't give the name of the neighbor, but did say he was in the office last week regarding a home addition. She said a hole was dug on the property and was filled with gravel.

"He hasn't erected anything yet, but we will be keeping an eye on it," DeCapua said. "Also, auto repair is one thing. Painting involves EPA standards and is a totally different ballgame."

On a different matter, trustees were informed about a request to add a parcel into the JEDD territory at routes 446 and 62. Trustees set Jan. 14 at 6 p.m. for a public hearing on the request.

Another issue that came up at the meeting was the ABC Stormwater District. All three trustees wanted to find out just how the district works. Administrator Keith Rogers said first of all, the funds from the district can only be used for storm water projects.

Rogers said the Indian Run Detention project qualifies as would Phase II to install 56 feet of 36" pipe. He said the project has to be bid out, the contractor hired, then application made to the ABC STormwater District for reimbursement.

He said to help trustees understand how the district works, he would type up the rules for funding projects. He told trustees the funds collected in Canfield Township could only be used in the township, unless there was a joint project for both Boardman and Canfield that would be agreed on by the ABC Board of Directors.

In other business:

Trustees approved paying warrants totaling $54,070.26 and purchase orders totaling $19,597.88.

Trustee Marie Cartwright was re-appointed to the JEDD Board for 2020, for a four-year term.
