<br /> <br />The Washington Township Board of Trustees met in Regular Session on January 3, 2005, at <br />7:30 p.m. at the Washington Township Government Center, 8200 McEwen Road. President <br />Blair led the invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance. <br /> <br /> <br />MINUTES OF PRECEEDING MEETINGS <br /> <br />It was moved by Mrs. Young, seconded by Mr. Snyder, that the Board approves the minutes of <br />the Regular meeting held December 20, 2004. <br /> <br />Vote on Motion: Young, aye; Snyder, aye; Blair, aye. M2005-001 <br /> <br />CLERK’S BUSINESS <br /> <br />None. <br /> <br />CITIZEN CONCERNS <br /> <br />John Gintz, 1035 Kentshire Drive, expressed his concern that minutes of workshops were not <br />posted on the website. He expressed his concern for the Rec Center and, specially, for the old <br />cinema building. He questioned, for what repairs, utility costs, and maintenance costs would <br />the Board of Education be responsible. Would they be responsible for the whole building or <br />for just the part of the building they would be using? He also questioned what was being <br />done at the Rec Center and what costs have been incurred. He asked that this matter be <br />discussed at a public meeting, with the general public being notified in advance of when this <br />meeting would take place. <br /> <br />David Beyerle, 8831 Normandy Creek Drive, asked for the date of Mr. Douglas’ unsatisfactory <br />performance evaluation. Mr. Blair believed the evaluation was done in 2003 for his <br />performance in 2002. He further indicated that the evaluation Mr. Douglas received was not <br />totally unsatisfactory. There were about five items in the evaluation that were in need of <br />improvement. Mr. Beyerle then asked about Mr. Douglas’ 2002 and 2004 evaluations. He was <br />informed that the 2004 evaluation is due now. Mr. Beyerle spoke in support of Mr. Douglas <br />and expressed his concern that there was an ulterior motive and asked the Trustees to look <br />into this matter further. Mr. Blair expressed his opinion that he did not believe there was an <br />ulterior motive or that anyone has “got it in for David.” He assured him that Mr. Douglas would <br />be treated fairly and that the Trustees would be looking to see if additional staffing was <br />needed. <br /> <br />PERSONNEL HEARING <br /> <br />The Board of Trustees held an appeal hearing on the demotion of Dave Douglas at their <br />th <br />December 6th meeting. The matter was to be considered again at their December 20 <br />meeting; however, because of a personal matter, it was postponed until this meeting. <br /> <br />Mr. Blair indicated that this hearing dealt with an appeal of an Administrative Directive that <br />demoted Township Planner David Douglas back to his previous position of zoning inspector. <br />th <br />He recognized Mr. Goetz who was unable to speak at the December 6 meeting. <br /> <br />Andrew Goetz, 107 Logic Circle, wrote a letter and indicated his support for David Douglas. <br /> <br />Bonnie Mercuri, 9258 Clyo Road, also indicated her support for David Douglas. <br /> <br />01/03/05 <br /> 1 <br /> <br /> <br />
