In addition to other business covered in separate News Leader stories, Northfield Center Township Trustees took the following action at their July 1 meeting:

• Approved spending $53,742 for the completion of chip-and-seal work on Barry Lane, Karen Lane, Kathy Lane and Laurie Lane. H. Luli Construction will do the work.

• Approved the purchase of a 1.36-acre vacant lot situated between 198 and 216 E. Aurora Road through the Summit County Land Bank’s side lot and vacant land transfer program for a price of $2,200. Trustee Paul Buescher said the township has no plans for the parcel, but called the purchase "a great deal" for commercial property along Route 82.

• Designated an area adjacent to the northeast corner of the driveway at 7471 Meadow Brooke Way in the Rolling Brooke development as a special handicapped pick-up and drop-off parking zone, and approved the purchase and installation of a parking sign. The zone is to accommodate a bus transporting an individual with developmental and physical disabilities to and from Nordonia High.

• Approved an agreement between the township and Toshiba Business Solutions for least of a multi-function printer for Township Hall. The cost is $94.50 per month or $1,134 per year, including a five-year maintenance plan. Trustees said the contract will save the township $255 over five years.

• Adopted the five-year Summit County Hazard Mitigation Plan, which was updated and approved by Summit County Council.

Meanwhile, Township Administrator Steve Wright reported new street signs have been ordered and are expected to be delivered by mid-July.

A county engineer’s representative reported a stop bar on the pavement at Olde Eight and Highland roads will be relocated, and Macedonia Fire Chief Brian Ripley reported his crews responded to 12 fire calls and 52 EMS calls in the township in June.
