Trustees hear speeding complaints

MONROE TWP. — Monroe Township Trustees discussed continued speeding complaints from residents on Evanston Road during their Oct. 2 meeting.

Efforts are being made to remedy this issue since the detour began again due to the construction project on County Road 25A. The township is working with the Miami County Engineer and the Miami County Sheriff’s department for more patrol and signage that includes a speed trailer. It is advised residents not only call the township offices with their concerns but also the Miami County Sheriff’s non-emergency number.

The trustees passed resolutions at this Monday night meeting to pay bills totaling $66,027.52, and accepted the financial status reports ending September 2017 and the bank reconciliation of Aug. 31, 2017, as presented by the township fiscal officer.

The board also heard a presentation by Joellen Heatherly who is a candidate for the Tipp City school board in the November election.

It was noted that the Tipp City Spectrum (cable TV) Office has closed and residents needing that service can find the nearest office in Troy on Experiment Farm Road. Residents interested in obtaining additional information about bikeways and area transportation issues handled by the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC), they can do so by searching the commission’s large website of information and resources at
