Best Wishes, Ron!: The Boston Township Trustees would like to thank township road superintendent Ron Adams, who submitted a letter of resignation on July 6, for his years of service to the community. Ron, who started with the township in November, 2015, has accepted a position closer to his home in southern Summit County. We greatly appreciate Ron`s attention to detail and his abilities to keep the roads and equipment in the township in repair.

Road Superintendent: The trustees are currently advertising for candidates for the position of Road Superintendent. We will be accepting resumes until August 1.

Zoning Updates: The proposed new chapter to the zoning ordinance, the Seasons Road Business District (SRBD) was the subject of a hearing by the Summit County Planning Commission (SCPC) on June 28. With only a very few suggestions for non-substantive issues, the SCPC unanimously voted approval. Also, at a hearing before the Boston Township Zoning Commission on July 10, the SRBD was approved and referred to the township trustees who will have a hearing on it on August 8. Meanwhile, Northstar Planning will now focus its attention on other areas of the Business Corridor. Peninsula Library: On July 11, the Trustees passed a resolution honoring the Peninsula Library and Historical Society and thanked them for seventy-five years of service to the community.

Township Hall: The Boston Township Hall Committee (BTHC) just recently completed the installation of a new fire detection and alarm system at a cost of $9,598. At the same time, the township replaced the system in their part of the buildings at a cost of $4,177. Additionally, both entities have installed a Knox Box on the building which will house keys to be used by the fire department in the case of an emergency. The BTHC also has completed the conversion of the buildings to LED lights. The cost of the conversion will be reimbursed through Ohio Edison.
