Concord Township

Trick or Treat

Thursday, October 29th

Concord Township follows the Mid Ohio Regional Planning Commission date.  Most communities in central Ohio follow that date but not all.  Concord township has three different school districts, (Buckeye Valley, Dublin and Olentangy) and 5 different zip codes (Delaware, Dublin, Ostrander, Plain City, and Powell)  in the township. People often identify with their school district or community zip code.  These communities do not all follow the MORPC trick or treat dates so in the years the dates differ there is always confusion.


We realize some communities do not want to hold trick or treat on October 29th and we respect their right to pick a different date for their community but ask that the potential confusion this may cause be considered.  We live in a country where we are free to make choices and as trustees we will not infringe on the right of a community to pick their own trick or treat night.

If you choose to participate in trick or treat on Concord Township’s official night or another night please remember to be safe and have fun.

Bart Johnson, Joe Garrett, Jason Haney

Celebrating Halloween

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to use caution and plan ahead for Halloween festivities. Decisions on whether to participate should be made by local communities, individuals, and parents/ guardians.


Always follow current state public health orders and rules/regulations established by your local community, and check the Ohio Public Health Advisory System to determine COVID-19 risk levels in your county before making decisions about Halloween activities. Some communities may choose to cancel Halloween events, so check with local sources before making plans.


This guidance is designed to help curb the spread of COVID-19. It will be reassessed and updated as the situation evolves and we learn more in the weeks leading up to Halloween.


RECOMMENDED BEST PRACTICES


General Guidance

  • It is strongly recommended that hayrides and haunted houses be canceled/avoided.
  • It is strongly recommended that Ohioans exercise caution when deciding to participate in trick-or-treating and events that put them in close contact with people outside their households. To lower risk, consider safer, socially distant ways to celebrate, such as:
  •    Holding a drive-through or drive-in trick-or-treat event, with children in costume and face     coverings staying in cars and collecting treats from individuals spaced at least 6 feet apart.
  •    Holding drive-by costume or car-decorating contests with judges who are physically             distanced.
  •    Leaving treats for friends and neighbors.
  •    Decorating your home and hide treats as an alternative to trick-or-treating.
  •    Holding costume parties or pumpkin carving events or contests online, such as by video       conference.
  • Do not hold large in-person Halloween parties. If holding smaller parties, limit attendance to 10 or fewer people and hold the event in an outdoor area where social distancing is possible. Avoid activities, such as bobbing for apples, that foster the spread of infection.
  • Always wear a face covering and stay 6 feet away from people who are not from your household, whether trick-or-treating, passing out treats, or attending attractions or events. Stay home if you are sick. (NOTE: Face coverings should never be placed on children younger than 2 or anyone who cannot easily remove them.)
  • Carry hand sanitizer and use it often, especially after coming into contact with frequently touched surfaces and before eating candy.
  • Select events/attractions that are held outdoors and allow attendees to stay in their cars (such as drive-through event with displays) or socially distance. Avoid events that involve being crowded in a small area or coming into contact with/being touched by others.
  • Consider the people in your household who may be at greater risk of complications if COVID-19 is brought into the home, such as those with certain health conditions, women who are pregnant, or older family members.

 

For Parents/Guardians

  • If taking your children trick-or-treating, limit the number of houses you visit and ask your children to stay as far from treat-givers as possible. For small children, consider holding the bag for them.
  • Wipe off candy wrappers with sanitizing wipes when you arrive home. (NOTE: Never wipe unpackaged food with wipes.)
  • Allow children to eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid homemade treats made by strangers.
  • If your child is at greater risk of complications from COVID-19, contact your doctor before allowing participation in Halloween activities.

 

For Community Members

  • For trick-or-treating, reach out to neighbors to discuss ways to ensure 6-foot social distancing, how candy can most safely be distributed, and the need for face coverings.
  • Refrain from having children select their own treats from a bowl/common container or set up a hand-sanitizing station. Consider placing treats on porch steps or a table in the driveway with a sign asking children to take only one. Or use other creative ways to distribute treats, such as using a candy “slide” made of PVC pipe, or hanging treats from a wall or fence.

REPUBLIC WASTE SERVICES

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.

 

Republic Services will reinstate all services effective April 27th, including yard waste, bulk pickup, and recycling, all back to the normal schedule.  We appreciate your patience and cooperation during these trying times.

 

NEW RECYCLING GUIDELINES:

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

SEEDS ARE BEING PLANTED!!!!  

 06/10/2020

  

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 contact@concordtwp.org
