United Way of Delaware County received news they are getting money from a federal grant to help Delaware County residents with rent and utilities that qualify. United Way of Delaware County President Brandon Feller told Michelle Gatchell in the radio show Delaware County Matters, that the grant of $6,000,000 must be spent in 2021. Feller said they hope to have it set up for people to apply by mid-March.
They already had a program in place to help with rent and utilities and last year helped many families with around $250,000. With how fast Delaware is growing he said he thinks this money will help reach more people in need - they just need to find ways to get the word out to those people across Delaware, including in our townships.
Not only will this help many who may have had their hours cut or even lost their jobs due to COVID related situations with paying rent and utilities, but it is also creating jobs. United Way will need to hire people to help take care of the grant distribution. They have already posted positions on their website that you can share with any of your residents that might be looking.

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.
To sign up for new service, or if you are moving, please visit the Republic website at www.republicservices.com.
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
A portion of the park's turf area between Home and Dublin Roads 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 area 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 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.
Volunteer Energy was awarded the low bid supplier for township electric for the Ohio Edison portion of the township starting July 2020.
First Energy Solutions/Energy Harbor letter: This applies to the AEP portion of the township. AEP customers were switched to First Energy Solutions (FES), which restructured and is now Energy Harbor. New letters have been sent to AEP customers.
The AEP portion of the Township was recently re-bid, and the Trustees approved Dynegy Energy on Feb.10 to begin the next three year supplier contract at a rate of $.04956 effective May 2021.
