CALCUTTA - Several property-related items came up for discussion and action at this week's meeting of St. Clair Township trustees, including transfer of a small parcel to the township.
Trustees adopted a resolution accepting a quit-claim deed for 450 square feet of land located inside the community park on Calcutta-Smith Ferry Road. The small piece of property was given to the township by William Foulks Jr., with the provision that it be maintained by the township.
According to Fiscal Officer Deb Dawson, there is a small monument to Foulks on the parcel.
Trustees also reported that a piece of property on Cornell Street has been surveyed and is now owned by the township, meaning a dilapidated house trailer on the parcel can now be demolished as part of the Moving Ohio Forward program.
After a survey, it was also determined that all of Primrose Lane is located in Liverpool Township, not St. Clair Township, and Dawson said the survey was conducted to determine road maintenance obligations.
Dawson reported receiving the employee health insurance renewal and that it includes an 18 percent proposed increase in premium cost.
She said it is likely trustees will be "shopping around" to determine if a better cost is available.
It was also reported the new air conditioning unit was to be installed at the township administration building this week.
Trustees adopted the annual amounts and rates of tax levies from the county auditor.
