He who sees a
need, and waits
to be asked to
help, is as unkind
as if he had
refused it.

Dante Alighieri

The township minutes are posted on our website at www.bostontownship.org and outside the fiscal office at the Boston Township Hall. . Meetings are covered by the West Side Leader. 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: The Township`s new truck which was substantially funded through the Volkswagen settlement fund, should be arriving in July. The Trustees approved the replacement of the exterior pedestrian door into the Trustees` meeting room. Brush pick–up commences the first Monday in May and continues through October. Place cut ends toward the curb. Please no dirt, or dirt balls and no foreign material such as lumber, nails, or barbed wire. For more information, please call the Road Department at (330) 657–2600.

May 4 Election: Once again the upcoming election will be held in the Trustees` meeting room on the lower level to facilitate traffic flow and distancing due to Covid.

Ohio`s Townships Left out of Recovery Funds: Due to an oversight in the drafting of the recently enacted American Rescue Plan Act, the Townships in a few states, including 1,308 Townships in Ohio, are not slated to receive funds from the act. Intensive efforts on behalf of state officials and the Ohio Township Association and the Township Association of Summit County have been directed at correcting this error. To date, there has been no success in remedying this situation.

Visit the Township Website: For those who have not done so, please visit the Township website (www.bostontownship.org) where you will find many things of interest. Besides current Township minutes, zoning information, and local links, the minutes of the Township dating back to 1811 have been digitized and are available to view. (We are missing five years in the 1960s). There are also many articles of local history, including area cemeteries, impacts of land acquisition on the township, and historic businesses in the community.

Thank you, Joe!: At the Peninsula council meeting on April 12, police chief Joe Varga announced his intention to retire at the end of May. The Trustees would like to thank Joe for his many years of service to the village and township. We greatly appreciate all that Chief Varga did to enhance communication and cooperation with the Township. While we will miss working with him, the trustees wish Joe a healthy and happy retirement.
