Green Twp. trustees reopen Coy Park

GREENFORD – Green Township trustees have reopened Coy Park to the public.

The trustees last week approved the opening of the park amid the COVID-19 pandemic and are now accepting rental applications for the pavilions.

The trustees also approved $6,265 for Custom Concrete to repair the well at Coy Park, which has started to crack and authorized Township Administrator/Fire Chief Todd Baird to seek prices for lumbering the white pines at the front of park. Trustees also asked Baird to get an estimate to repair the stone wall at the Washingtonville Cemetery recently refurbished as an Eagle Scout project.

The trustees have scheduled at special meeting for 7 p.m. June 8 at the community building to discuss the cemetery wall repairs and park trees

Additionally, trustees approved $2,900 for Most Majestic to repair the roof and gutters of a garage next to the park damaged by a tree in the park that fell; approved participation in the cooperative purchasing agreement for the winter salt program; and authorized Baird to hire a part-time seasonal employee at $15 per hour for 20 hours per week.

In other business, Baird reported the fire department received a $10,000 equipment grant through the Ohio Department of Commerce for turnout gear

Baird also told trustees he it is unknown as of now if the fireman’s festival typically held the first Saturday in August will take place this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The next regular trustees meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. June 23 at the community building.
