BOSTON TOWNSHIP

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 Tuesday of the month.

Road Department: Recent incidents of high intensity rainstorms have highlighted areas in the community where improvements may be needed to drainage systems. Currently under review is the Morris/Woodland area. The damage that was done to Riverview Road north of 303 has made it very difficult for many in the community to get around. Access to the township property is being maintained from 303, but no through traffic is permitted. As a result of the fire at the Peninsula road garage in January 2019, the village road crew have been operating from the township road garage under a lease agreement. At the meeting held May 27, the trustees agreed to extend the lease agreement with the village through September 30, 2020.

Police Levy: The township`s police levy will be expiring at the end of 2020. The trustees have asked the Summit County Fiscal Office to certify the total tax valuation for a renewal of the current 7 mill, 5-year police levy. Also, for informational purposes, the trustees asked for the Fiscal Office to certify the total tax valuation for an additional 2 mill, 5-year levy.

Zoning: Zoning Inspector John Schneider reported that on June 10 a meeting was held at the commercial property at 5649 Akron-Cleveland Road to discuss violations to the conditional use permit for the property. At the meeting with Schneider was the township solicitor, township zoning liaison, representatives of the Valley Fire District, the property owner and the property owner`s legal counsel.

Zoning Meetings: Out of necessity, Zoning Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals meetings were put on hiatus due to the COVID-19 crisis. However, as there have been some inquiries and applications waiting, the trustees will discuss ways to proceed with zoning matters at their meeting on June 24.
