The township minutes are posted on our website at www.bostontownship.org and outside the fiscal office at the Boston Township Hall. Trustee meetings are the second and fourth Wednesday of the month. Zoning commission meets the second Tuesday of the month and the Board of Zoning Appeals meets the fourth Wednesday of the month.

Zoning Planning: Mark Majewski of Northstar Planning attended the Trustees' meeting on October 12. Mr. Majewski presented the latest draft of his report for planning for the future of the Business Corridor District along both sides of Akron-Cleveland Road. and answered questions from residents in attendance at the meeting. After more information is gathered, Mr. Majewski will return with an updated report.

Road Department: Road Superintendent Ron Adams reported that the sealing of roads has been completed to help protect them from damage during the winter. Also, stop bars (the white bars that go half-way across the road at stop signs) have been painted on all township roads. The leaf vacuum has been serviced and inspected and picking up leaves will be beginning soon.

Zoning Hearing: Complete Outdoor Installation, LLC has requested a hearing before the Board of Zoning Appeals for their property located at 5600 Sullivan Lane. Letters have been sent to owners of properties within 500' of the property in question and the hearing was advertised in the newspaper. The hearing will take place on October 25 at 6:30pm at the Boston Township Hall.

Missing Minutes Found: The minute book covering six years of township meetings from 1976 to 1981 has been located. The volume had been stored away in the records of the township solicitor for safe-keeping. Upon being returned to the township, the volume has been scanned and added to the almost complete set of minutes on the township website. We are still trying to track down the four year span from 1963 to 1966. Once that volume has been located, we will have the township's minutes available on our website from the origin of the township in 1811 to present day. If anyone has any information on this last volume of minutes, please contact one of the trustees.

Zoning Positions Available: We are looking for one member for our Zoning Commission and one alternate to the same board. Zoning Commission members meet once a month to analyze the zoning ordinance for any updates or modifications, review changes in zoning laws that might impact the zoning ordinance, and provide guidance to the Board of Zoning Appeals regarding appeals to the zoning ordinance. Please contact one of the trustees if you would like to discuss serving on the Zoning Commission.

SHARE-A-CHRISTMAS: The trustees will again be sponsoring this event. There will be more information in the November issue of YCN.
