Trustees hear concerns for sewer tie-in

At the March 10 meeting for Canfield Township, trustees heard from a South Palmyra Road resident concerned about stakes with blue flags being placed along the road.

Chester Kaschak said he received calls from neighbors about survey work being done on the road. He said a surveyor was out placing the stakes and when asked, the person told Kaschak he was surveying the city's sewer system.

"Is it legal for the city to run a sewer line and if so, do we have to tie in?" he asked trustees.

Trustee Marie Cartwright addressed the concern and told Kaschak that trustees had taken care of that in establishing the Millennial JEDD (Joint Economic Development District). She said under state rules, anyone within 200 feet of a new sewer line would be required to tie in. Trustees made sure the sewer line ran at the back of the Millennial JEDD so it would be beyond the required distance for tie-in.

"We made sure residents [of the township] could not be annexed into the city," Cartwright said.

In other business:

Road Superintendent and Township Administrator Keith Rogers reported the salt in the township dome is as high as it can be placed with the present equipment. He said the township still has to buy 90 percent of what it estimated to buy last year. To buy that much will require the use of a loader to store it.

Trustees approved increasing the township credit card for the administrator from $2,500 to $5,000, issue a credit card with a $2,500 limit to in-coming Fiscal Officer Denise M. Joseph, and close the credit card for Fiscal Officer Carmen Heasley effective March 31, 2020.

Warrants and electronic payments totaling $330,656.71 were approved to be paid.

A donation of $1,000 to the War Veteran Museum to help with the cost of wall plaques was tabled until more information could be had. Also tabled was a resolution for CT Consultants to inventory the township roads.

Approval was given to contract with Cross Brothers Landscaping LLC for fertilizing at Township Park at a cost of $1,475 per treatment, and for Easton Lawn Service to handle the mowing at Township Park at a cost of $199 per cut.

Approval was given to purchase an L-shaped desk from Modern Office Products not to exceed $950, and eight Pro Line II high-back chairs from Office Max at a cost not to exceed $3,000.
