Canfield Township trustees approved sending the public works employees to a special training session in October. The training involves the township's Vactor truck that is used to clean out culverts and catch basins.

"The training will be on hose repairs and a review on cleaning nozzles and what the various nozzles are best suited for," said township administrator Keith Rogers. "This will help our guys get storm sewers cleaned out quicker and more efficiently."

The Vactor truck has several different nozzles that each have an optimal use, according to Rogers. The training will show which nozzle best fits each circumstance and which is the best for a specific job.

The training will take place in Twinsburg at the Jack Doheny Company.

"That is who the township purchased our truck from," Rogers said.

In other business:

Trustees approved a tune up and belt replacement for the back-up generator at Cardinal Joint Fire District Station 2 on Messerly Road. The generator has been out of service for six weeks and the tune up will cost a lot less than replacing it at $15,000.

Trustees agreed to hold trick or treat from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31, which coincides with the city of Canfield's times.
