Jim Hite, Greg Grube, Jamie Carroll and Jimmy Barber were present from the Fire Department.
Mary announced that
Aaron had given all the information to the village solicitor and he advised that the village not put the tanker in the township’s name. He said the village is not authorized to do so on their behalf and can only put it in the village’s name, like all the other equipment is. Mary got a call today and was told that if it wasn’t going in the Township’s name, then they would only give $10,000 towards the purchase, and the rest would have to be financed.
Ed made a motion to put $60,000 of the money from the fire fund and $10,000 from the township down on the truck and finance the balance of $46,649.99. Steve second. All yea.
Council advised Aaron to contact Dublin Capital for financing options.
Council discussed the issue and our relationship with the Walnut Township Trustees.
Ed made a motion to adjourn. Laura second. All yea. The time is 8:41 p.m.
