BUTLER TWP. — The Dayton Firefighters Federal Credit Union donated 50 carbon monoxide detectors to the Butler Township Fire Department on Monday during the Township Trustees’ meeting. The detectors will be given to households that need a working detector.
The donation is part of 360 detectors being donated to seven local fire departments in Dayton, Kettering, Trotwood, Huber Heights, Butler Township, Sugarcreek Township and Troy.
This is the second year in a row the credit union has donated carbon monoxide detectors to the communities they serve, for a total of 681 carbon monoxide detectors. The past two years the credit union has chosen to donate a detector for each skip-a-loan-payment fee received from their holiday promotion.
“We are proud to partner with the Miami Valley fire departments to help try to protect residents from carbon monoxide poisoning”, said Marketing Manager, Shannon O’Neill.
Fire Chief Dan Alig said that any township resident that would like a CO detector can call the fire department at 890-2491.
In other action, the Trustees set a public hearing for a pair of rezoning cases, one in Singing Ridge and the other on Benchwood Road. Township Administrator Erika Vogel said the rezoning is not in response to a development proposal on either parcel but a reverting to previous zoning.
The Trustees also approved an agreement with the Montgomery County Engineer for assistance with road paving. Benchwood Road, Autumn Ridge Road, Silver Rock Avenue, Walnut Ridge Road, Creekview Circle, Honeycutt Circle, Cedar Cliff Circle, Del Ray Avenue, and portions of Meeker Road will be repaved in 2017 at a cost of $291,027.40. That cost will be split between the road levy fund and the township’s general fund.
The board also authorized Vogel to enter into an agreement with Bladecutters Lawn Service for landscaping services at the Government Center and Cloverleaf Road. The cost of the contract is not to exceed $7,415. The contract in 2016, which included right of way mowing, cost $16,725.
Vogel also noted that there is currently an opening on the township’s Board of Zoning Appeals and Budget Commission. Anyone interested in serving on either of these boards is asked to send a letter of intent and/or qualifications to Vogel by email at email@example.com or by mail at 3510 Sudachi Drive, Butler Township, OH 45414.
The Butler Township Trustees will hold their next regular meeting on Monday, April 10 at 7 p.m. in the Township Hall. All meetings are open to the public.
