M2005-276 <br /> <br />CLERK’S BUSINESS <br /> <br />EMPLOYEE HEALTH SCREENING <br /> <br />For the last four years, the Township has contracted with the Wellness Connection of the <br />Miami Valley to provide health screenings for employees and spouses. Again, this year, the <br />Township would like to incorporate those screenings with an employee benefit fair, which will <br />have representatives from the Township’s insurance companies, banks, deferred <br />compensation companies, and other benefits. Staff is requesting that the Township pay the full <br />amount of the screening for employees and half or a maximum of $30 for spouses of current <br />employees. This is the same amount as last year. This screening is also open to Montgomery <br />County Sheriff’s Office employees who are assigned to the Washington Township sub-station <br />and their spouses. <br /> <br />It was moved by Mr. Blair, seconded by Mrs. Young, that the Board approves contracting with <br />the Wellness Connection of the Miami Valley to provide health screenings and a follow up <br />meeting for current Township employees and their spouses for an approximate cost of $3,600. <br /> <br />Vote on Motion: Blair, aye; Young, aye; Snyder, aye. M2005-277 <br /> <br />CITIZEN CONCERNS <br /> <br />Dana Studebaker, 6581 Mad River Road, presented some pictures of the corner of Mad River <br />Road and Munger Road. He asked for the removal of the guardrail at that location and <br />replacing it with a berm. This would involve installing a small pipe for directing the creek flow, <br />filling in the ravine and removing the guardrail. He believes this would increase traffic safety, <br />decrease Township maintenance expenses and increase the beautification of the historical <br />road. Letters from his neighbors, Theodore W. Bernstein, MD, and Donald Pesek supported <br />his request. He also submitted a response from Mr. Toberen on March 24, 2004, which <br />indicated that the project did not warrant the Township’s attention at that time due to the <br />amount of work and costs involved. <br /> <br />Mr. Toberen indicated that in addition to the necessary piping, proper grading would be <br />necessary and a lot of trees would have to be removed. There was also a concern about <br />erosion. <br /> <br />Mr. Studebaker had more comments; however, he moved away from the microphone and his <br />comments were inaudible. <br /> <br />In response to Mr. Blair’s questions, Mr. Toberen indicated that the Township follows ODOT’s <br />guidelines for guardrails. He indicated that the guidelines are frequently updated and he is <br />unsure whether the end of the guardrail conforms to the current ODOT guidelines. <br /> <br />08/01//05 <br /> 1 <br /> <br />
