Canfield Township trustees heard two complaints at Tuesday, Jan. 23 meeting regarding property maintenance and flooding control. The complaints came during the public speaking of the meetings.
The first concern came from Scott Welch whose property abuts the former Flower Mill property on South Canfield Road. He asked if trustees were going to cite the property owner for the debris on the property.
It was supposed to be cleaned up, Welch said.
Chairwoman Marie Cartwright said the township administrator did meet with the Mahoning County prosecutor over the matter and that he would be following up with Welch soon.
In another matter, a Timberland Trail resident brought up concerns over flooding issues in her neighborhood. She also stated the property has garbage on the property that needs to be cleaned up.
On a different matter, trustees discussed requesting the city of Youngstown Water Department waive their fee for the installation of a sprinkler system at Fire Station 2 on Messerly Road. Cartwright said the city of Canfield had waived the fee for the system installed at Station 1 on Lisbon Street.
We are hoping Youngstown does the same, Cartwright said.
She also mentioned that John Morvay will be serving as the resident-at-large on the Cardinal Joint Fire District Board of Directors.
In other business:
The trustees approved warrants for $84,831.99; electronic payments of $9,549.40; charges of $26,196.24; and purchase orders totaling $43,648.

Under recycling, June 2 was selected for the annual appliance drive and Sept. 29 for the annual electronics drive. Contracts for both drives have been signed with the fairgrounds.
