what is right,
and not do it,
is want of
courage, or
of principle.

ZONING: There is an opening on the Township’s zoning commission as well as an opening for an alternate position. If you are interested please send your resume and letter of qualifications to the Trustees at P.O. Box 123 Peninsula, OH 44264.

RUBBISH COLLECTION: The Trustees negotiated monthly rate of $16.00 next two years with J&J Refuse.

For those of you that were in our senior snowplowing program last year you will automatically receive your application this year. If you need an application please contact Amy Anderson.

PILT: In an effort to obtain more of the federal money funneled into Summit County to offset taxes on Park land the Trustees will be meeting with Councilman Nick Kostandaras and other county officials November 27th. These funds are the old PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) program. The other counties in Ohio that receive these funds distribute 90-100% back to the communities subjected to the loss in taxes. The Township is not the only entity receiving PILT funds. We are hoping these negotiations will bring in funding for Valley Fire, the Cemetery, and Peninsula Village. The Trustees will also be discussing sound walls along the Turnpike.

CONGRATULATIONS: Our township attorney, Ed Pullekins was named 7th in the recent Beacon’s Best Annual Contest. Suncrest Garden Center was number one in the garden center category and 6th in the gift shop/boutique category. Congratulations to all!

BICENTENNIAL COMMITTEE: If you are interested in participating in the planning of the Township’s Bicentennial please contact Randy Bergdorf.
