The minutes from the previous meeting and the Treasurer’s report were accepted.

Under old business, township board supervisor Carl Noffsinger noted that he will discuss cemetery maintenance with Mr. Eric Anderson, the groundskeeper. He discussed the need to verify the township’s role in enforcing fines for failure to submit a property transfer document continues to be tabled pending further research.

The board discussed the current contract with the fire department.
