At the December 5, 2016 meeting of the Staunton Township Trustees, the trustees reviewed estimates for a new tractor and mower that will cost the township approximately $46,500. The township trustees have applied for a grant from the Troy Foundation to cover part of the cost. They will find out whether the grant was awarded within the next month.

In addition, the township is hoping to expand the current facility to allow for additional storage and expanded space for the trucks, mowing, and road treatment equipment. The estimated cost for the expansions is $12,500.

The trustees announced that they plan to attend the Miami County Township Association Christmas Party on Thursday, December 10, 2016

In addition, Trustee Levi Long and Trustee Bill Gearhart have completed an assessment of all of the township road signs and determined that they are all in good condition.

The next meeting of the Staunton Township Trustees is scheduled for December 19, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the township building. And, according to Trustee Gearhart, I have committed to bringing my cheesecake, which is world class, so please plan to attend.
