2009.09.23 Dayna Cordts: Seneca Township meeting

Written by David Green.

I would like to thank all of my neighbors for showing up at the Seneca Township meeting on Sept. 14 in support of me, and what you believe is right. I do, however, apologize for the way you were treated by some members of the township board.

I thought it was completely disrespectful and unprofessional for the township treasurer to continually gasp and roll her eyes at the residents when they were trying to address the board with their concerns, and for the treasurer and the township clerk to whisper back and forth while the residents were trying to express their feelings to the board. But thank you all for your support. It makes me feel good about where I live, that this community can stand together for one another.

I would also encourage Seneca Township residents to get involved in what’s going on with our township board. It would be a good idea for the residents to start going to the meetings that are held on the second Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Seneca Township hall. The residents need to be aware of what’s happening in their community, so please take an interest in what’s happening in our township.

I would like to commend the township supervisor, John Gould. He really spent a lot of time researching the issue so that he could make an informed decision. I think he’s going to do good things for this township and the residents here.

    MORENCI pep rallies generally end with a tug of war. The senior class entry, shown above, did not advance to the finals. Griffin Grieder, Alaina Webster, Kyle Long and Jazmin Smith are shown at the front of the rope, giving it their best effort.
  • Accident
    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
