Green trustees set meeting on road bid

GREENFORD – Trustees will hold a special meeting at 7 p.m. on March 27 to discuss the only road paving bid it received for work on Knopf and Roller roads from a Cuyahoga Heights company.

During Tuesday’s meeting, Trustee Dave Slagle said the township received one bid from Specialized Construction of $147,645 for all the paving.

Trustee Chairman Mark Stepuk was unable to attend the meeting and trustees wanted more time to review the bid and the options included in it.

In other business, a ongoing mutual aid agreement for the police department was continued with the village of Sebring.

Chief Steve McDaniel said the agreement is similar to one with other agencies including Washingtonville and trustees approved it with a 2-0 vote.

McDaniel said there were 364 events that police responded to in February while 7,689 miles were logged during road patrols. There was one felonious assault.

He responded to a question from Trustee George Toy regarding a published report of a vehicle repossession in the township late at night.

McDaniel said the companies advise people their vehicle is being repossessed ahead of time and “they do it anytime … they can come to your house in the middle of the night …”

Toy said, “If somebody came to my house in the middle of the night, I’d be upset too.”

In other business, Green Township Fire Captain Mike Blythe advised that progress is being made with the firetruck and it could be ready for pick up about April 1.
