CONCORD TWP. — Concord Township trustees kicked off their first official meeting of 2016 by appointing Don Pence as chairman and Bill Whidden as vice-chairman on Tuesday.

Forest Hill residents Brent and Nicole Toney addressed the trustees about a flooding issue on their property. The residents said they have spoke with the county engineer’s office about the water flowing on their property. The Toneys said the flooding issue was not a problem the first year they owned the property, but had continually become a problem in recent years, including last month’s flooding.

Trustee Tom Mercer told the Toneys he would contact the county engineer’s office to set up an appointment to survey the township’s area of responsibility on Forest Hill Road. Mercer said once the engineer’s office reports back to the township, they would report their findings to them. Road superintendent Neil Rhoades said the culverts in the area of the Toney’s property may be undersized, contributing to the issue of water built up in the low area of their property.

The trustees also reviewed pending changes to the the township’s website. Trustee Don Pence said changes will include making the site more user friendly and more accessible on mobile devices.

Trustees also approved to keep the township meetings the first and third Tuesday of the month. Meetings will begin at 10 a.m. at the township building on Horizon Court.
