With a change in venue from the Boardman Township Government Building to the Applewood Swim Club, township trustees gathered for their regular meeting on Monday, June 25.
Boardman Township rrustees moved to adopt the resolution to call upon the Mahoning County Solid Waste Policy Committee and Mahoning County commissioners to fully restore funding to the District Board of Health in 2015. In addition, in the future, to provide inflationary funding and to make landfill inspections and well testing priorities equal to waste reduction programs.
With the Board of Health facing a 25 percent cut in funding -- a move that would leave it incapable of maintaining the current level of service -- Health Commissioner Patricia M. Sweeney was present at the previous meeting, where she had implored trustees for their support in adopting the resolution.
Also approved based upon the recommendation of police Chief Jack Nichols, the purchase of a 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe from Greenwood Chevrolet. At a cost of 30,574, the purchased vehicle is for use by the Boardman Police Department.
