Major Jeff Allen attended the June 11 meeting of the Canfield Township trustees to deliver his quarterly report for the township. The report was not a large as past ones.

"It was a very light quarter," he said. "Probably due to the weather."

Among some of the highlights were two drugs arrests, a break-in of a vehicle on Gibson Road, a stolen tractor that was returned and two drug arrests. He mentioned the three teens involved in the vandalism at Kennsington Golf Course have been charged.

"There was a burglary on Leffingwell Road and we do have prints to go on," Allen said.

He added that identification fraud was down, but telephone harassment was up.

Before he was excused from the meeting, resident Chester Kaschak publicly thanked Allen and his department.

"I praise the police protection we have in helping get a kid who was driving recklessly on Palmyra Road," he told Allen. "Thanks to you, there is no more speeding. No one got killed. You did a good job."

In other business, trustees heard a report on flooding and were informed the ABC Storm Water District would be meeting in Canfield the next day.

Township Administrator Keith Rogers gave a report on the recent appliance drive. He said 132 cars went through in four hours and the collection came in at 1,240 pounds, which he said was in line with past collections.

"We had a lot of dehumidifiers," he said.

In other business:

Chairman Joe Paloski mentioned there are now government funds available to build tornado shelters and suggested it be looked at and perhaps build one at Township Park.

Approval was given to pay out $87,474.52 in warrants and electronic payments and $1,118.74 for the purchase of the present copier.

Approval was given to hire Intertech PSI to do testing on Alvacardo, Aladdin, and Eden Rock to determine if the asphalt road was done to code.

Approval was given to permit the Township Administrator to do abatement control for high grass and debris. This move will speed up the process in taking action on nuisance properties.
