Trustee Bart Johnson and Trustee Jason Haney were advised by the Ohio Ethics Commission to recuse themselves from voting, discussing, or deliberating the rezoning matter being held on January 20, 2021 of the Farneman and Brewsters Trillions LLC properties. (see legal notice below)
The Ethics Commission stated that because Trustee Bart Johnson and Trustee Jason Haney have an ownership interest in property within the immediate vicinity of the parcels to be rezoned, the recusal was legally necessary. In particular, Mr. Haney lives across the road from the proposed development and Mr. Johnson’s family owns farmland across the road and just north of the proposed development.
R.C. 519.12 requires that “If the board denies or modifies the [township zoning] commission's recommendations, a majority vote of the board shall be required.” Since the Trustee Board is made up of three members and two must recuse themselves, there will not be a majority of the board available to vote to deny or modify the Board of Zoning Commission’s recommendation.
The Board of Trustees will still hold a meeting on January 20th to meet the requirements of R.C. 519.12; however, the result will be the zoning classification will not change on the subject properties pursuant to any action taken at the January 20th meeting.
With the current increase of Covid-19 cases we encourage everyone who wants to participate to please call in. The call in instructions are below.
The Concord Township Board of Trustees will hold a special meeting on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. at the Concord Township Administrative Building, 6385 Home Road, Delaware, Ohio to hear the following case recommended for denial by the Concord Township Zoning Commission: Application #ZC012020, filed by Metro Development of 170 Olde Worthington Road, Suite 100, Westerville, OH 43082.

Republic Services Contract: All Concord Township residents have seen a $1 per month increase in your Republic Waste Services Trash/Recycling bill. The Trustees wish to address this increase. Concord Township is in year 5 of a trash/recycling contract with Republic Services. The original contract was a 3-year contract for $16.95 per month. A 3-year contract extension was signed in 2019. Year one of the extension the price held at $16.95 a month. Year two (April 1, 2020-March 31,2021) the price increased to $17.95 a month. Year three of the extension (April 1, 2021-March 31, 2022) the price will increase to $18.95 a month. At that point the contract will be expired. If you have any questions, please contact one of the Trustees.
ALL ITEMS TO BE EMPTY, CLEAN & DRY
Recent changes in recycling markets have forced Regional Processing Centers to eliminate some of the items they will accept. The list below is the limit of what should be placed in your recycle cart. Other items may be recyclable, just not in this program.
Newsprint and mixed paper. No tape and place loosely in cart.
Bottles and Jugs - #1 PETE and #2 HDPE with lids removed. Numbers 3 through 7 are acceptable but not desirable.
Bi-metal, steel, and aluminum food and beverage containers
Cardboard and Old Corrugated Containers (OCC); dry and broken down. Do not put "boxes-inside-boxes. Break them down flat and tie with a string or twine (not tape).
Gable top containers from gravy, milk, broth, and whipping cream
STICK TO THE LIST! WHEN IN DOUBT, THROW IT OUT! It’s no longer the quantity of what we recycle. Quality of clean items that are placed loosely in your recycling container will be the focus. For additional information, please log on to www.summitreworks.com
Native Prairie Planting
You might notice large amounts of white and blue flags in the turf area between Home Rd. and Dublin Rd. This is the start of a large native flower and grass planting. The Township received a grant from ODNR to transform this area into prairie. While turf is necessary for some areas of the park, this area requires an extra cost of turf management to the Township and taxpayers. However, prairies require very little maintenance. Converting a portion of the park’s turf areas to native flowers and grass can offer substantial cost savings. This will be an ongoing process and could take several years to establish fully. In the coming weeks and months you will notice the area turning brown and dying. It will be seeded in late June, and some plants will start to appear in the fall. In the process of establishing the area the Township will be working with several local groups to add signage and bird boxes.
If you would like to be involved in any part of the project please email firstname.lastname@example.org
THANK YOU DREW FROM SCIOTO RESERVE!! <3
