Bethel Township (Miami) Trustees voted to spend restore ditches along Wonder Way, Wildcat Road and Flick Road at their March 27 meeting. The work is expected to improve drainage in those areas.

The trustees approved a maximum of $6,000 for the work which is expected to be completed within a month or two.

Trustees said that the drainage upgrade to the Newbury/Windham plat has been completed.

Township Administrator Andy Ehrhart reported that Engine 6 is still out for repair. It needs a caliper replaced, and the expected cost is over $2500.

He also said that Brush 7 has been repaired and is back in service. “We ordered a new carburetor on Ebay for $40, I put the thing on and tuned it all up and it’s working now,” said Ehrhart.

He also reported that he is awaiting cost estimates to repave Scarff Rd. between Rt. 40 and Rt. 571, Wonder Way and East & West Haskett.

Assistant Administrator Marty Caskey reported that the Zoning Commission denied a request for an accessory building larger than permitted on Ginghamsburg-West Charleston Rd.

The Bethel Township (Miami County) Trustees meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Township Meeting Room on Second St. in Brandt. The public is welcome to attend.
