BOSTON TOWNSHIP

SEWER PROJECT: As reported in the July issue of YCN the Trustees had until August 9th to agree to partner in a JEDZ agreement with Cuyahoga Falls in order to receive funding for the design of a sanitary sewer on Seasonís Road in Cuyahoga Falls going north to Suncrest Gardens. Funding would be from Cuyahoga Falls, a block grant, with the balance coming from the Department of Environmental Services. As stated previously the agreement includes the approval of a master zoning plan which at the present time has not been created. The Trustees have not been included in discussions between Hudson, Stow and Cuyahoga Falls with regards to the JEDZ. Cuyahoga Falls is quick to respond that Boston Township has not contributed any funding for the JEDZ or the sewer design. What they neglect to tell you is that since the first income tax collection in October 2006 Cuyahoga Falls has the benefit of over $337,000 in income tax revenue that has be generated in the current JEDD agreement. None of these funds have been used by Cuyahoga Falls for the benefit of the JEDD area. Throughout the JEDD collection period the JEDD agreement allowed for a 3% collection fee. The collection fee had not been instituted until February 2011 allowing Cuyahoga Falls to collect and additional $1,503. As a contingency of accepting the JEDZ agreement the Trustees asked that the 3% fee be removed. As of the September 14th Trustee meeting the fee was still being collected.
