On the record – Braceville
WHAT: Township trustee special meeting Tuesday
PRESENT: Dennis Kuchta, Aaron Young and Jeff Tucker
• Approved a contract with Kirila Contractors at $124,260 for the widening and paving of Price West Road this summer, paid for in part with an Ohio Public Works Commission grant, leaving the township to cover 54 percent of the total costs;
• Appointed Patrick Whitmore to a vacancy on the zoning commission;
• Announced the community garage sale days are July 30 to Aug. 1 with no permits required;
• Reported the zoning commission will make a presentation at the Aug. 3 meeting on adding a section on exotic animals to zoning laws, inspired when a pet monkey got loose last summer. The zoning board held a public hearing on the issue last week, but no residents attended.
