The Washington Township Board of Trustees met in Regular Session on October 3, 2005, at <br />7:30 p.m. at the Washington Township Government Center, 8200 McEwen Road. President <br />Snyder led the Pledge of Allegiance. <br />MINUTES OF PRECEEDING MEETINGS <br />It was moved by Mrs. Young, seconded by Mr. Snyder, that the Board approves the pre - <br />meeting minutes and the minutes of the Regular meeting held September 19, 2005, and the <br />Workshop held September 26, 2005. <br />Vote on Motion: Young, aye; Snyder, aye; Blair, aye. M2005 -345 <br />CLERK'S BUSINESS <br />Purchase <br />The Township's current badge printer is budgeted to be replaced. The current printer is <br />unreliable and has had to be repaired several times. The Township's Information Services <br />Coordinator and clerk's office staff have received information on three systems and <br />recommend the purchase of the card printer and associated hardware and software from <br />Identicard Systems. This system allows for the flexibility of exchanging information with the <br />Township's payroll system. <br />It was moved by Mr. Blair, seconded by Mrs. Young, that the Board authorizes the purchase of <br />a Zebra P420i Duplex PPC Printer and IBIS Plus 1000 OTS operating system with associated <br />hardware and one year maintenance from Identicard Systems, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, for <br />the approximate cost of $6,880. <br />Vote on Motion: Blair, aye; Young, aye; Snyder, aye. M2005 -346 <br />CITIZEN CONCERNS <br />Mike Schuder, 80 Centerwood Lane, thanked everyone for their consideration of his comments <br />made at the September 19th meeting. He expressed his concern about the nighttime medics <br />and with the engines not staying in service at night. He believed standards should be <br />established and met. Additionally, the fire department should have a plan. Will it remain a <br />part -paid service with volunteers or will it be staffed at some point? If there is a plan, he noted <br />that it has not been released to the public. He asked that this be done soon. <br />Mr. Huff indicated that the part -paid and volunteer status of the fire department would <br />continue. He acknowledged that there was a problem with the fire engines going out of <br />service; however, this has improved over the last three years, since the Township implemented <br />On Call pay. Mr. Huff further indicated that the Township should have more information by the <br />end of the year or the beginning of next year on how much revenue can be expected by <br />charging non - residents for EMS calls. Once this has been determined, options for how this <br />revenue can and should be used will be considered. <br />10/03/05 <br />
