The meeting was called to order at 7:02 PM by Supervisor Curt Brown. Present were Feight, Lamb, Bunch and Coulter as well as Brown. Also in attendance was Counselor Mike Brooks.

At this point Curt Brown went to New Business and presented information from Modern Waste re: changes to their pricing policy. We have been sharing expenses with Raisin Township who provides a site for the recycling bins. We have been paying per agreement, 50% of the monthly charge( $ 285.00 ). Because of a collapse in demand for re-cycled products Modern Waste is having to travel further and pay more for sites that process these materials. As a result , our portion of the cost would rise to $ 2,128.00/month. Discussion was held and Mike Feight made a motion to discontinue our participation in this program. Coulter seconded and the motion was passed. The Board of Trustees will pursue alternate solutions for re-cycled goods within the County for our Township citizens during the coming months.
At this point, Curt Brown made a motion to adjourn the regular meeting and go into Public Hearing and discussion of the FY 2018/2019 Township Budget. Mike Feight seconded the motion and it passed. During this discussion, it became apparent that the Township is in sound financial shape and that we will not levy the proposed millage for support of Operations for 2018/2019 FY. We did raise the amount for road projects from $ 85,000 to $ 100,000. The Public Hearing was adjourned and the regular meeting was resumed. Pat Lamb motioned to pass the budget as presented with the road maintenance amended. Seconded by Coulter and motion passed. This budget will be posted on the Township website.
