  School Board, Teachers’ Union Agree On New, Two-Year Salary Increase  
  Cost Of Wage Increases Set At $156,223:   May 6, 2021 Edition  
     The Boardman Board of Education unanimously approved an amended contract with the Boardman Education Association at its regular monthly meeting on Monday, April 26. The amended contract allows for a wage increase following the teacher wage freeze agreed upon last year during the uncertainty of the pandemic.

  Our Great Boardman Police Department!:   April 29, 2021 Edition  
      Six decades ago, Boardman Township was beginning to change from a sleepy ‘bedroom’ community of Youngstown to the hub of retail activity in Mahoning County.
      With that transition, our local Boardman Township Police Department began to modernize its use of technology, and manpower was increased in an effort to deal with the changing times.
      Fast forward to today, and the admonitions of previous leadership at the Boardman Police Department rings clear---“We better be prepared for what’s coming.”
      Police in Boardman Township today deal with issues---time and time again---that police here rarely dealt with 60 years ago---particularly drug abuse and all the thefts and absurd behavior related to addiction; as well as addicts and drug dealers and other unsavory types of humanity who seem to come to Boardman Township hostelries.
