REGULAR MEETING CALL TO ORDER:
Chairman Joe DeFelice called the Regular Trustee Meeting of October 2, 2018 to order with the Pledge of Allegiance at 7:00pm at the Harrison Township Building, 2746 Weigand Road, Lockbourne, Ohio. Attending were Trustee Joe DeFelice, Trustee Mike Freeman, Trustee Bill Welsh, Fiscal Officer MaryAnn Elliott, Fire Chief Chad Noggle, Zoning Inspector Dale Hoover and Road/Cemetery Superintendent Kevin Hulse.

HEARING OF VISITORS:

- Darryl Krahn stated he wanted to support the Delong Grainery. Mr. DeFelice said he was welcome to attend the Public Hearing for the Delong Company.
- Kevin reported that Darryl Buckler has replaced all of the bricks around his parent’s gravesite. Dr. Freeman asked Kevin to get all of the other gravesites in that section cleaned up according to the Rules and Regulations and then remove Mr. Buckler’s bricks last.
- Kevin needs six plywood sheets to cover the open graves at the cemetery. The Trustees approved the purchase of these.
- The Pickaway County Engineer has decided not to do the striping on the newly paved roads. The cost of having it done by a private company is more than twice the price we were planning to pay. Mr. DeFelice recommended waiting until next year when the Engineer’s office is striping. The Trustees agreed.
- The Fiscal Officer received a letter asking for a duplicate deed and she asked Kevin to put it in the safe for John Horsley who writes all of the cemetery deeds.
