  Trustees Approve Resolutions To Aid Development Of Stormwater Park  
  February 23, 2023 Edition  
     Meeting last week, Boardman Trustees Brad Calhoun, Larry Moliterno and Tom Costello adopted a resolution aimed at improving drainage in the township, saying they will cooperate with the ABC Water and Stormwater District “to efficiently provide stormwater drainage through the Cranberry Run stream area, that will include the proposed Forest Lawn Stormwater Park that is scheduled to be built on the property of the now vacant Market St. Elementary School, 5555 Market St.
      Construction of the stormwater park will begin after asbestos removal work is completed at the school. The removal work is supposed to be completed in late February, Trustee Costello said.
      The stormwater project is collaborative project funded by ABC District monies, federal and state grants, and a $1 million grant from the Mahoning County Commissioners.
      Trustees have designated Road Superintendent Marilyn Kenner as agent for mitigation grants submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as well as a state-local hazard mitigation grant.
      Goal of the proposed stormwater park is to alleviate high, surface water flows during peak rainfalls.
      In other matters---
      Trustees approved the purchase of four,2023 Ford police utility vehicles at a cost of $172,206.92 for user as unmarked police units, upon the recommendation of Police Chief Todd Werth.
      Based upon the recommendation of Kenner, Trustees approved the purchase of a 2023 Chevy Silverado for the Road Department at a cost of $40,800.
      Kenner also recommended a temporary easement be granted to the East Ohio Gas Co. at 5007 Southern Blvd. to allow for the construction of gas lines along Southern Blvd. Trustees okayed that request.
      The Township Trustees endorsed C-1 and C-2 liquor permit requests for the Garden Kettle, 8049 Market St.; and voted unanimously to not endorse a D-3 liquor permit request sought by the Ohio Sport Bar and Betting LLC, 5600 Market St.
      C-1 and C-2 permits allow carryout sales of beer and wine. A D-3 permit allows the consumption of high-proof liquor until 1:00 a.m.
      Trustee Moliterno and Administrator Jason Loree were appointed as Boardman Township’s representatives to the Mahoning County Tax Incentive Review Counsel.
