At a regular meeting of the Boardman Township trustees, much of the agenda included what Township Administrator Jason Loree referred to as the address of much-needed fleet maintenance.

Approved purchases included vehicles for the road department through the State Cooperative Purchasing Program, as well as vehicles for the fire, police, and zoning departments.

In other news:

-Boardman township officials discussed their support of continuing talks following recent meetings with Youngstown officials to discuss the possibility of a rental property registration program similar to that of the city of Youngstown.

Township Administrator Jason Loree said the township and its attorney plan to meet to further discuss how the township would launch a comparable course of action; one that would allow the township to expand beyond current exterior zoning ordinances to ensure that rental-property owners are in compliance with indoor property ordinances.

-Trustees publicly stated their opposition to a proposed two percent increase in Mahoning County's hotel bed tax, one that would increase the current tax to 14.75.
