<br /> <br />The Washington Township Board of Trustees met in Regular Session on January 7, 2013, at <br />7:30 p.m. at the Washington Township Government Center, 8200 McEwen Road. President <br />Paulson opened the meeting and led the Pledge of Allegiance. <br /> <br />FISCAL OFFICER’S BUSINESS <br /> <br />Year-to-Date Income/Expense Report <br /> <br />The Trustees have requested that a Year-to-Date Income/Expense Report be presented on a <br />monthly basis. As of December 31, 2012, Washington Township has collected $24,293,947.14 <br />from all funds and has dispersed $21,582,837.22 in all funds for a positive cash carryover of <br />$2,711,109.92. As of December 31, 2012, the outstanding encumbrances were <br />$2,733,177.43. <br /> <br />Lighting District – Washington Trace Annex - Phase One <br /> <br />The Township’s Fiscal Officer notified the Trustees on December 10, 2012, of a street lighting <br />petition received from Divided Ridge Associates, Ltd. for Washington Trace Annex – Phase <br />One. Under the Ohio Revised Code, a public hearing must be held within 30 days of <br />notification to the Trustees; and 15 days prior, all landowners must be notified of the hearing. <br />All landowners have been notified. If approved by the Trustees, a contract with Miami Valley <br />Lighting will be signed. The developer has agreed to pay all of the up-front installation costs <br />and, per Resolution No. R2007-004, the developer has deposited with the Township the <br />estimated annual pole lease and usage charge for the first year. The monthly lease of the <br />poles and fixtures and yearly lighting fees for usage will be assessed to the property owners. <br /> <br />It was moved by Mr. Berry, seconded by Mrs. Young, that the Board authorizes approving the <br />Resolution for a lighting district at Washington Trace Section 5, called Washington Trace <br />Annex – Phase One, for three acorn style fixtures and decorative poles, and that the Board <br />also authorizes the Township Administrator to enter into a contract with Miami Valley Lighting <br />for said lighting district. <br /> <br />Vote on Motion: Berry, aye; Young, aye; Paulson, aye. R2013-001 <br /> <br />CITIZEN CONCERNS <br /> <br />Mike "Slinger" Gibney, 1441 Beaushire Circle, in "the greatest township in the State of Ohio" <br />expressed his appreciation for the outstanding job the Trustees and senior staff are doing. <br />Leaves were picked up perfectly, snow was plowed, and he stated that everything is good. <br /> <br />Mr. Gibney indicated he read a statement online, “Centerville video challenges township <br />funding again.” He asked the Trustees about it. <br /> <br />Mr. Paulson indicated it is just a rehashing of an old study. He also indicated that the Trustees <br />have discussed this issue and have counterpoints to almost all of the City of Centerville’s <br />points. He did not know the answer to Mr. Gibney’s question about why Centerville is doing <br />this. <br /> <br />Mr. Gibney was bothered by the “tax uniformity bill” statement. He asked if Centerville is going <br />to go to the State and try to force taxes in the Township to help the City? <br /> <br />Ms. Lightle indicated that the Tax Uniformity Bill is legislation that is already proposed at the <br />State for the uniform collection of currently levied income tax in cities.
