CONCORD TWP. — Concord Township trustees heard from a township resident about the township’s parking ordinance which has been in place since last fall.
Trustee Tom Mercer advised that the ordinance was in place due to safety and citizens who have voiced their concerns.
“We are not looking to change the policy. It is fair and reasonable,” Mercer said. “It is a safety issue and we will not alter the policy.”
Trustees passed a resolution to accept the 2015 fiscal budget. The public hearing was held Tuesday with no comments from the public.
Mercer said the Miami County EMA is still currently assessing damages from May 21 on flash flood event. Mercer said the EMA team assessed damages on east Swailes and County Road 25-A. Mercer said road superintendent Neil Rhoades and crews are working to remove field debris from rural areas and are still picking up debris around the township. Rhoades is also working to restore the berm on Lytle Road which washed away from the flash flood event.
Trustee Bill Whidden has been designated as the main contact to deal with noxious weeds and tall grasses for 2014. Whidden will handle complaints and work with the public to handle each case which is reported to the township office, according to Mercer.
Concord Township also is creating an email list to keep residents advised on pertinent information. Residents can subscribe to the newsletter online at www.concord-township.com. The newsletter subscription on the on the left side of the homepage.
The next meeting will be held at 10 a.m. June 17 at the township building on Horizon West Court. Concord Township Trustees meet the first and third Tuesdays of the month.
