At the Jan. 13 Boardman Township meeting, fireman Joel Wharry took the oath of office to move up to the position of Lieutenant. Fellow firefighters, family and friends showed up for the event.

Fiscal Officer William Liecht handled the oath and immediately afterwards, Wharry's girlfriend Sierra Fox handled the pinning of Wharry's new badge.

"We had seven apply for the position," said Fire Chief Mark Pitzer. "Joel was selected from our top three. He already holds a certificate as a fire safety inspector and can hit the ground running."

On a different matter, Krista Beniston reported she sent out 500 letters requesting rental registration and has another 2,000 that just recently went out. She said the letters are to suspected rental property owners.

"When an owner doesn't match the property address, we will send out a letter," she said.

Rental owners typically are not listed as main residents of the property. If for any reason a person is listed with a different address, but are the only residents of the property, Beniston said they need to call the zoning office and get it straightened out.

"If you feel you received the letter in error, contact us immediately," she said.

In other business:

Tom Costello was selected as Chairman of the Board of Trustees for 2020 and Brad Calhoun as Vice Chairman. The selections were made after Fiscal Officer William Liecht firmly started the meeting with a loud strike of the gavel.

The transfer of a D5 Liquor Permit from St. Luke Roman Catholic Church, 5225 South Ave., to Annapurna Foods LLC, dba Caf India, 813 Boardman-Poland Road was approved.

Trustees agreed to approve a resolution of intent to conduct an Internet Auction for the sale of unneeded, obsolete, or unfit township personal property (including equipment and vehicles) in calendar year 2020. Also agreed on was the use of to handle the online auction.
