BUTLER TOWNSHIP — The Montgomery County Transportation Improvement District (TID) will present a report on traffic counts and truck traffic at the Butler Township Trustees meeting on Monday, April 11.

The traffic study will be presented during a workshop that will begin at 6 p.m. The regular business meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Both meetings will be held at in the Butler Township Hall, 3780 Little York Road.

The study was conducted last fall and in January by IBI group and was presented to the Vandalia City Council on March 7.

The study included roadways in Vandalia, Butler Township, and Union including I-70, I-75, U.S. 40, Dixie Drive, Peters Pike, Dog Leg Road, Union Airpark Boulevard, Old Springfield Road, Lightner Road, and Frederick Pike, Northwoods Boulevard, and others. The study also compares current traffic counts to available historical date provided by the Ohio Department of Transporation.

Steve Stanley, Executive Director of the TID, said the study was part of the process for improving U.S. 40 as part of a federally funded project. Parts of the study were funded by ODOT, the TID, the Cities of Union, Dayton, and Union.

Other topics to be discussed at the meeting include presentation of the Police Officer of the Year award, the swearing in of Fiscal Officer Mark Adams, and several purchases.

The Trustees will also consider a resolution to make appointments to the recently formed Butler Township Budget Commission. Trustee Mike Lang has chosen Jack Woods as his direct appointment; Trustee Nick Brusky has chosen Ken Betz as his direct appointment; and Trustee Joe Flanagan has chosen Greg Brush as his direct appointment.

Brush is currently the Montgomery County Clerk of Courts.

Two other appointments to the five-person commission are David Mohler and Sherry Edwards.
