ETNA GREEN—Business at the Etna Green Town Board meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 13 focused on a welcome sign’s placement and more maintenance at the Heritage Park building.
Treasurer Laura Baker informed the board that the town’s welcome sign at the corner of SR 19 South and High Street is making it difficult for drivers to see when making a right-hand turn. As soon as the weather permits, the sign will be moved to the east about 3 to 4 feet.
The board also discussed further improvements to the Heritage Park building. The floor of the building needs to be stripped and cleaned. However, the board is still looking into an option for having rubber feet on all chairs and tables in the building to prevent damage.
The board approved the floor cleaning, but will not have it done until an option is found for tables and chairs.
The board agreed to have President Todd Slabaugh be a part of the U.S. 30 coalition. The coalition is an advocacy group that focuses on upgrading the road to a freeway.
Etna Green Fire Chief Randall Byrer spoke to the board regarding more space at the fire station for storing trucks. The board said they will figure out where the property line is first before they consider approving a building extension or addition.
The board also made the decision to match the donation they made last year as a Triton Elementary All School Field Day sponsor. They decided to be a gold level sponsor and donate $350.
Todd Slabaugh announced to the board that Hattie Ludwig has been hired into the custodial position. The job includes general cleaning of the Heritage Park building.
In other business:
