Bristol to meet with sheriff on coverage

BRISTOL — Because of increased incidents of vandalism and speeding on newly paved roads, township trustees are planning to meet with the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office to see if they could provide evening coverage.

Trustee Ramon French said at Tuesday’s meeting there has been more reports of vandalism to vehicles and breaking into houses and barns in parts of the township.

“The calls I have received from residents indicate there has been more vandalism incidents and more speeding vehicles,” French said.

He said trustees have requested a speed study be done on Houselcraft Road, which likely will get done by the end of September.

French said a meeting with the sheriff’s office will be held soon to see if the township would be able to contract for evening coverage.

“We want to meet with them and see what they can do to help us,” he said

Also, French said the new Bristol Museum located in the park will have open houses for the public on Aug. 21. That same day will be a farmers market and vendor show at the park.

He said the museum is located in the former zoning office building and showcases memorabilia and items on the township’s history.

Nearby is the historic doctor’s office and barbershop that also will be available for tours.

Trustees also:

• Heard from residents concerned about a burned house at 1351 state Route 88 and maintenance of the yard. Trustee Chairman Doug Seemann said they are in the process of getting the house taken down but it takes time;

• Announced there will be only one meeting in August at 6 p.m. Aug. 10.
