OSNABURG TWP.-- Township officials welcomed Shiloh Bailey as a new firefighter during their regular meeting on Sept. 12.

Trustee Richard Pero swore in Bailey with family and friends in attendance.

In zoning business, Dorothy Bucher mentioned she received a phone call from a township resident asking how the township gets speed limit signs for the roadways and who decides where guardrails are installed.

It was noted that in order to have those items installed, a study would have to be done to determine the need for a stop sign or a guardrail. Officials noted the cost for the study most likely would be expensive.

Assistant fire chief Amy Parker asked trustees to order two firefighter outfits at $2,689 per set. One of the outfits will be Bailey.
