Warren trustees discuss roads, insurance

TILTONSVILLE - Road work, insurance and dump sites drew attention at a recent meeting of the Warren Township trustees.

A resident of Turkey Point Road indicated it is difficult to drive a car over that road without its bottoming out, and he added three logging companies had hauled over that road in the past.

Trustee Danny Meeker said trustees have been holding back concerning repairs on Turkey Point Road, as there were rumors of oil and gas companies going to do work in that area. He assured the resident that work will be done to improve the road.

Road Foreman Steve Kurucz said there are two water lines installed in that area, and he suggested Meeker contact county water officials to find out the locations of the service lines and meters before any work is done.

Kurucz reported dirt roads have been graded, except for Dallas Road, because there were Dumpsters on that road while a dump site was being cleaned out.

The road crew, according to Kurucz, cut weeds on Jones Road, Jackson Heights and Turkey Point roads, and he also told of upcoming work with a boom mower on Gerke Road.

Bill Lucas, agent-manager of Anderson-Campbell Insurance Agency, Toronto, which handles the township's insurance, gave a report and noted there is no change in the insurance program since last year. The yearly rate is $6,127 and a credit then will result in a premium of $4,210.41.

He explained the credit is possible because Warren Township is a part of an intergovernmental pool - Ohio Township Association Risk Management Authority - and has been a member for the last six years.

Meeker reported he had met with Carla Campona of the Jefferson County Health Department to view dump sites on Jones and Dallas roads. He said Weirton Construction, which owns the land on Dallas Road, had entered into a contract with a company for cleaning the site on that road.

In other matters, trustees approved a motion accepting the amounts and rates as determined by the budget commission, approving the necessary tax levies and certifying them to the county auditor.

Trustee Carl Sgalla reported repairs for the township trailer total $300, and a motion was approved to pay for the work.

Complaints such as those pertaining to roads, guardrails, weeds and limbs have been received and have been taken care of, according to Trustee Frank Litva.

Litva also said he and Sgalla will attend the upcoming monthly meeting of the Jefferson County Regional Planning Commission.

The trustees' next regular meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Oct. 9.
