ADMINISTRATOR KEERAN INFORMED COUNCIL THAT SHE HAD BEEN MADE AWARE OF A SAFETY GRANT AVAILABLE BY THE STATE OF OHIO AND INFORMED FIRE CHIEF RAY FRIEND OF THE POSSIBILITY OF APPLYING FOR THE FUNDS TO PURCHASE A NEW TANKER TRUCK. AN ESTIMATE FOR A NEW TANKER TRUCK WAS OBTAINED BY CHIEF FRIEND IN THE AMOUNT OF $200,359.00. AS THE TANKER TRUCK SERVES NOT ONLY THE VILLAGE BUT CARRYALL TOWNSHIP AND PART OF HARRISON TOWNSHIP, THIS PROPOSED PURCHASE QUALIFIES AS A PROJECT FOR THE GRANT TO ADDRESS PUBLIC SAFETY.  IN ADDITION, THIS GRANT GIVES MORE WEIGHT ON COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS OF POLITICAL SUBDIVISIONS IN PROVIDING EMERGENCY RELATED SERVICES.  ADMINISTRATOR KEERAN STATED THE VILLAGE WOULD APPLY FOR $100,000.00 AND THAT CARRYALL TOWNSHIP HAS AGREED TO PROVIDE $17,000.00 PER YEAR FOR 10 YEARS TO PAY FOR THE $100,000.00 MATCH.  ADMINISTRATOR KEERAN STATED THE DEADLINE FOR THE GRANT APPLICATION IS MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2016, BUT SHE WILL UPLOAD THE APPLICATION BY FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2016.

 

CHIEF FRIEND WAS IN ATTENDANCE AND ANSWERED COUNCIL’S QUESTIONS ON THE NEW TANKER TRUCK AND ITS SPECIFICATIONS/CAPABILITIES.  THE VILLAGE WOULD OWN THE NEW TANKER TRUCK AND THE CURRENT TANKER TRUCK WOULD BE RETURNED TO CARRYALL TOWNSHIP. BOTH CARRYALL AND HARRISON TOWNSHIPS HAVE SIGNED THE MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING THAT MUST BE SUBMITTED WITH THE APPLICATION.
