Minutes from Tecumseh Township July 9, 2018 Monthly Meeting.
The meeting was called to order at 7:02 PM on July 9, 2018 by Supervisor Curt Brown. In attendance were Brown, Lamb, Feight, Coulter. Treasurer Bunch was absent. Attorney Mike Brooks also in attendance.
The Pledge of Allegiance was given.
The floor was opened for Guest Comments. Kevin Decker from our insurance carrier Decker Agency presented the Township coverage for the FY 2018/2019 period. Our total premium will increase by $ 156.00 for the period.
Mr. Decker covered details of our coverage for the Board members in detail. He pointed out that Cyber Crime Liability is available for us if we ever deem it necessary. This is typically more critical to large townships who have employee records, etc. on computers.
Mike Brooks suggested strongly that we increase our total coverage for Public Official and Employee Bond Coverage from current $ 100,000 to $ 300,000. Mike pointed out that we need protection more in line with the potential losses our current financial situation might suffer. This was discussed and the Board will consider this change after Mr. Decker revises our quote to cover this.
Minutes from May 2018 and June2018 meetings were presented, discussed and a motion made by Feight and seconded by Coulter to approve. Motion passed.
Treasurer’s Report was presented by Pat Lamb and placed on file. Bills were presented by Pat Lamb. Motion to approve made by Coulter, seconded by Feight. Motion passed.
Building Report presented and placed on file.
Old Business: Mike Brooks reported that there was no new information on the ongoing zoning decision lawsuit.
New Business; Clerk Coulter reported on preparations for the upcoming August 7 Primary. Election workers will receive training and re-certification on July 12 training session with Clinton Township. Coulter listed the workers as follows:
Pat Tooman, Chairperson; Judith Holcomb, Laurie Hoffman, Marianne Smith, Pat Miller, Dianne Marsh, with two new workers for the Township, George and Susan Durkee. Curt Brown made motion to approve this list; second by Pat Lamb; motion passed. We likely will not need but 5 persons on duty at a time so we will likely split the shifts as needed.
Curt Brown presented the proposed Intralocal Agreement with Raisin Township to use their Building Inspector. He will meet with Dale Witt, Raisin Twp. Supervisor and sign if agreeable to both parties.
Clerk Coulter reported several calls from residents asking if there were any regulations for fireworks in the Township. The answer is "no" and Mike Brooks pointed out the near impossibility of enforcing regulations even if they exist. No further discussion on matter.
Website discussed in light of Jack Cramer's "retirement" from doing it. Curt Brown pursued several leads and settled on having it maintained by Andy Mensing. No cost for this has been established but he will discuss with Mensing and report back to the Board. Motion made by Coulter; seconded by Feight to approve pending determination of cost. Motion passed.
There was no additional public discussion or business before the Board. Motion to adjourn made by Coulter; seconded by Brown. Motion passed and meeting adjourned at 8:00 P.M.
Gerald L. Coulter, Clerk
