      Boardman Township has received upwards of $700,000 in grant funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, also known as the CARES Act.
      Acting within specific guidelines of the act, meeting on Monday night, Boardman Trustees Tom Costello, Brad Calhoun and Larry Moliterno approved expenditure of some $161,000 of Cares Act funds for the police and fire department, and also for the purchase of some 166,750 disposable face masks.
      Acting upon the recommendation of Police Chief Todd Werth, Trustees approved the purchase of a mobile message board and speed trailer for $15,735; as well as the purchase of nine laptop computers for $26,928.
      Acting upon the recommendation of Fire Chief Mark Pitzer, Trustees okayed $68,666 for the purchase of three chest compression systems and three laryngoscopes.
      “These COVID-19 related expenses will be submitted to the CARES Act for reimbursement,” Township Administrator Jason Loree said.
      In another COVID-related matter, Trustees approved an expense of not more than $50,000 for the purchase of 166,750 disposable face masks.
      Currently under consideration in light of the purchase, is a plan to distribute the masks to the pubic, free of charge, perhaps at a drive-thru event at the Government Center.
      “We should get the masks in within two to three weeks, and have discussed handing them out to the public,” Trustee Tom Costello said, adding “We expect to be reimbursed for the expense, under the strict guideline of the CARES Act.
      The CARES Act, is a $2.2 trillion economic stimulus bill passed by the 116th U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Donald Trump on March 27 in response to the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.
      Unrelated to CARES Act funds, Trustees approved the purchase of 27 thermal printers for use in Boardman Police Department cruisers at a cost a $14,850.
      Following multiple public meetings, a community survey and numerous stakeholder meetings, Trustees approved multiple amendments to the township zoning resolution.
      Trustees declared Halloween will be observed on Sat., Oct. 31, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Boardman Township.
