Liberty Township Trustees approve 2013 budget

Updated:

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Liberty Township Trustees held their first meeting of the new year on Wednesday and approved the township's 2013 budget.

Trustees say the state of Ohio continues to cut local government funds and the only way to maintain services for the public is by doing more with less, and by not replacing everyone who retires.

Jodi Stoyak, chairperson of the Liberty Board of Trustees, says, "Those costs have to be contained in some way and the only way to do that is by not replacing retired employees. So it's a difficult process. People do more with less and we're a strong employer and we hope to continue to provide the same amount of services to our residents. That's the most important thing we can do right now."

At the meeting trustees approved the retirement of the township's road superintendent who has worked for the township for 37 years. Most of his duties will now be taken over by a senior foreman already working for the township.

In other business, the board of trustees appointed Jodi Stoyak as chair and Jason Rubin as vice-chair of the board.

Regular meetings for the board of trustees will be held on the second Monday of every month at 11:00 a.m. through March 11th. In April the meetings will return to the 6:30 p.m. schedule.
