On the record – Warren Township

WHAT: Trustee meeting Tuesday

PRESENT: Kay Anderson, Ed Anthony and Ryan Yoho


• Voted 3-0 denying an appeal to a demolition of a barn and trailer at 1209 Layer Road with officials saying the barn is falling down and the trailer has a broken window. Resident Frank Naypaver, who spoke at the hearing appealing the decision, agreed the barn should come down, but not the trailer, which he said is structurally sound. Residents who spoke at the hearing said the barn and trailer have become nuisances and eyesores. Trustees decided to move forward to have both buildings torn down;

• Heard from several residents complaining about a nuisance property off North Leavitt Road with high grass and rats. Officials said a hearing will be held at a future date for the public to provide input;

• Took the first step for placing a 1-mill, five-year renewal road and bridge levy on the November general election ballot. The auditor will certify the amount the millage will raise;

• Accepted the resignation of part-time police officer Mark Flynn effective April 9;

• Heard from zoning inspector Norman Ashley that Carl Street is in bad condition;

• Heard from resident Ray Lickwar of Eagle Creek Road that his water went bad in the past year causing his dishwasher to need replaced. He said oil got into his well;

• Set annual tire dropoff 4 to 8 p.m. May 17 at the road department. Spring cleanup was set for noon to 8 p.m. May 16 and 17, also at the road department.
