Street cleaning contract OK’d
The Lake Township trustees have approved a contract with MJ’s Snow and Landscape, Port Clinton, for $1,300 to sweep curbed streets during the summer.
The sweeping is required by a storm water management plan mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
In all, 17 miles of designated streets – Eastpointe, Crosswoods, Indian Trails, Cedar Valley, Lakewood, Rockland Drive, Circle Drive, Indian Creek, Country Meadows, Freedom Estates, Argyle Forest and Commodore Drive will be swept once a month in June, August, and October.
In other business Tuesday, the trustees met in executive session to discuss fire department personnel issues but took no action when they reconvened their regular meeting.
The trustees will meet May 8, instead of May 7, due to their meeting room being used for the primary election.
The Sandusky County Board of Commissioners have approved a property tax abatement for Reino Linen Service in the Village of Gibsonburg.
The company is planning to construct an administrative building on Yeasting Street, according to minutes of the commissioners’ April 16 meeting. A repair and reconditioning facility is planned for Windsor Lane.
The company is moving offices out of its current plant site to free up more floor space.
The abatement agreement calls for the company to receive an abatement of 75 percent on its property taxes for 10 years.
