Trustees help out Sebring fire department

Boardman Township trustees had a long agenda of items to consider at the Oct. 15 regular meeting. Among the items was what to do with the vehicle exhaust system at the former Boardman fire station at 136 Boardman-Poland Road.

"When we built the new station we were able to include a new system," said Assistant Fire Chief Rob John. "The one at the former station is 18 years old."

He said the system connects to the fire truck exhaust pipe and when the fire truck is fired up, it sends the exhaust gases out of the building through a duct system. The connection automatically pops off as the truck leaves the building.

John said the Sebring Fire Department does not have a system and cannot afford one. When they respond to fires, the truck exhaust fills the fire station which is not good for the fire fighters.

John said the old system in the former station is not needed and could be given to Sebring to help them out. Trustees all agreed to let Sebring have the old system.

Trustees also agreed to a Trex (Transfer Form for Economic Development Transfer) Resolution for Rite Aid, 307 Boardman-Canfield Road. The issue involved a liquor permit that Rite Aid could not obtain when it was built.

According to Vice President and Secretary of Rite Aid, Amanda Glover, a Rite Aid store in Trumbull County had closed and the law allows the transfer of a liquor permit to sell beer and wine to a Rite Aid store in another Ohio township.

"We hope it brings the need to hire additional people," she said.

Trustees also gave approval for a D51 liquor permit for Storming Crab, 6651 South Avenue and a C1 and C2 liquor permit for Ohio Springs Inc. d.b.a. Sheetz Convenience Store, 134 Boardman-Poland Road.

In other business:

Trustees declared nuisance properties at 4041 Sylvia Lane due to rubbish and debris on the property; 174 Meadowbrook Ave. for rubbish and debris; and 7397 Sierra Madre Trail due to rubbish and debris and an unsecured door.

Trustees approved an agreement with Canfield Police for the Boardman Police to participate in the OVI Task Force. Canfield is the lead agency for the local task force and handles the grant funds. Police Chief Todd Werth said Board had received over $40,000 in reimbursement for extra patrols and officers used in Boardman for OVI blitz and check points.

Trustees were informed the leaf program will run from Oct. 28 through Nov. 22.

Trustees set Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. in Boardman Park for an open house on Boardman's newly proposed zoning regulations.

Trustees set Halloween for Thursday, Oct. 31 from 5 to 7 p.m.
