PIKE TWP.-- Township trustees at their Aug. 1 meeting asked residents for their patience dealing with road work.
Board president Doug Baum acknowledged that "there are orange signs, barrels, and yellow shirts on almost every road." He asked that motorists drive slowly, with caution.
Road supervisor Mark Pahanish said his crew is done with chip and sealing, except for Maplehurst and Farber, which will be done in about a month, when pipeline work is complete.
In the meantime, the crew is berming, mowing and opening culverts. He also asked for permission, which was given, to have trees trimmed at Ullet and Ridge.
Fiscal Officer Steve Knox explained the hard drive on his computer crashed. Paychecks would be estimated and written by hand, and then reconciled.
Zoning inspector Sharon Perrine reminded residents that swimming pools require a permit.
In ground pools must have at least a 4-foot high fence, and above ground pools must have ladders removed when not in use.
She also reported that a pretrial hearing regarding the Grooms property will be held Aug. 12.
Trustees announced the next township cleanup day will be Aug. 20, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Items must be manageable, or people will be turned away.
Lawn waste can be taken to Canton Township on Central Avenue Monday through Saturday.
The next regular meeting will be held August 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the township building.
