Firms present township’s website options

April 19 township trustees meeting

by Chris Studor

Three different website companies looking to make the township’s website more user friendly made presentations to the board of trustees April 15. Each website vendor was given 45 minutes to outline how their company could renovate the site.

“Our goal is to have the township website streamlined and made more user friendly including mobile phone friendly,” Trustee Melissa Augustine siad. “In addition, while not the first priority, we will ask each company if it has the ability to provide a link on the website which would enable township residents to view video recordings of township meetings at a later date. Our main goal is to streamline the website, provide an easy to read township calendar of events, and to post township news in a manner that is easy for all residents to utilize.”

In other business at the trustee meeting;

  • Trustees announced that Kimble Waste Removal billing is behind and the next billing will come out the first week of June.
  • Trustee Monique Ascherl said the Medina County Solid Waste District will offer Hinckley residents a discount voucher, which can be used through June 30, for the dumping of large items at the MCSWD.
  • Service Director Mike Beheary received the green light from trustees to order 1,000 pounds of road salt for the winter from the Ohio Department of Transportation with the price yet to be determined.
  • Trustee Jack Swedyk said the township will be using a diesel- and gas-fueling monitoring system from Great Lakes Petroleum, at a cost of $250 per month, in order to meet requirements from the state auditor’s department regarding fuel monitoring and use. The cost will be shared by the police, fire and service departments. The system automatically records each car fuel is pumped into, the individual driver and how much fuel was pumped.
