St. Clair meets to do spring business

EAST LIVERPOOL — St. Clair Township trustees met last week to approve their $3.7 million recapitulation of annual appropriations unanimously.

The bulk of the money detailed went to the township’s police district, or $1.5 million, according to the one-page document. Other notable figures included $489,000 in fire levy moneys; $390,035 in road and bridge fund moneys; $200,000 from the gas tax and another half million in Tax Increment Financing, or T.I.F. funds, which typically are used to improve redevelopment in a community.

In other action, trustees also approved a new contract with On Demand Drug Testing out of Austintown to administer its drug and alcohol screening testing for its city-employed CDAL drivers. The township’s current contract with the Community Action Agency will expire at the end of the month.

In addition to paying bills totaling $199,698.26, the township also opted to order only 200 tons of road salt from the Ohio Department of Transportation’s recently awarded contract due to the mild winter. They normally would have ordered 600 tons but had a sufficient amount on hand.
