The Sheffield Township supervisors planned the annual spring clean-up day at their meeting April 16.
It will be held on Saturday, June 16, from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. regardless of weather at Sheffield Area Middle Senior High School.
Cost for dumping will be $5 per carload, $10 to $20 per pickup truck load, $5 per appliance and $1 per battery. No regular garbage, lawn or garden trimmings, paint or hazardous material will be accepted.
The supervisors heard quotes for waste disposal services on the clean-up day. Veolia Environmental Services' costs were $900 per truck for two compactor trucks with two workers, 10- to 30-yard roll-off transport at $50 for a delivery fee with $160 perhaul and $49.50 per ton of waste. Jones Carroll Inc. submitted a bid $500 per compactor truck for two trucks with two men, $185 per-pull for roll-off transport, $185 for electronics transport and a $40 per ton fee. Segel and Sons Inc. offered to place a roll-off for appliances, batteries and scrap metal. Segel would charge $100 for the pull, but it would be offset by the company paying the township for scrap metal collected.
The Jones Carroll bid and the offer from Segel were accepted.
The supervisors were told that District Technician Greg Kolenda of the Warren County Conservation District could not do GP3 permit work for streambank restoration along Utah Road. Kolenda's predecessor, Josh Dean, had previously told the township he could do the work. Al Vanderpool of E&M Engineering, who is also working on the township's sewer system upgrade, offered to take on the permit work at no charge.
Pictures of signs at the Memorial Park concessions stand and the handicap sign near the gravel at the softball field were sent to the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, which will be sending a check for the next part of a grant for work at the park in response. Once handicap access is complete at the park, the grant can be finalized.
The supervisors discussed roofing services for two municipal properties. Questions about roofing work on the township building and the township's police garage included whether it was appropriate to bid the project or whether members of the township road crew could do some of the work and the possibility of using tin roofs.
The supervisors passed a resolution to designate the property at 106 Hall St. as blighted.
They are considering enacting a "green river" ordinance in response to queries from a magazine salesman. The ordinance would regulate or restrict door-to-door sales in the township.
A representative of Chivers Construction Co. notified the township of the closing of sections of Blue Jay Rd. (SR 1003), from 7 a.m., Monday, May 7 until Friday, June 29.
An Arbor Day celebration will be held at Memorial Park at 11 a.m. Friday, April 27.
