MARION — The Middle Branch Township Board, at its meeting earlier this month, expressed satisfaction with the completed roadwork at 15 Mile Road.

“It’s now a Class A road,” township clerk Peggy Hoard said.

It was reported township doors are not done nor is the basement. Hoard added everyone on the board looked at 14 Mile Road where the road committee suggested guard rails to be installed.

Hoard reported the tire collection went well and she had one more semi to collect tires.

Board members also reported rubbish day went very well and the tree at cemetery one did not need to be removed at this time. It was added the fence and buildings are done except for inside the bathrooms.

A motion was approved to opt out of recreational marijuana. The ordinance was typed and signed and scheduled to be placed in the paper.
Hoard reported to the board the property off 14 Mile Road was warranty deeded to the township for less than $100, but there is nothing noted in the minutes or in the receipt book. It was signed by Donald Williams who was the supervisor at the time.

Also reported at the meeting was the pump on the well went out and was replaced. The insurance policy was approved as presented.

The state garage has not responded to the request to re-stripe the parking lot, the board was informed. It was suggested at the meeting that the township place a newsletter inside the taxes informing individuals of upcoming events.

Complements were made about the playscape but it was added there is a need to place a fence around the propane tank to keep the children off.
Commissioner Tim Michell gave an update on his involvement with the County Commission.

An update was issued on the Marion Fire Department, which meets the first Thursday of the month in the community room at the Marion Public Library at 7 p.m. It’s open to everyone.
