The Rundown - July 28, 2020
The Rundown is a quick summary of the most recent meeting of the Board of Trustees for subscribers of West Chester's e-newsletter.

The Board of Trustees voted Tuesday not to establishment a special assessment landscape district for the Cincinnati-Dayton Corridor.

After a public hearing and consideration of this special assessment district, the Trustees determined creation of such a district is better if initiated instead by petition of the property owners affected by the assessment.

The proposed Cincinnati-Dayton Road Landscape District would have assessed property owners in the corridor for replacement of decorative signposts and mailboxes erected during the recent improvement project.



  • Trustees approved placement of a 2-mil police levy and a 2-mil fire & EMS levy on the Nov. 3 ballot.  See related story >>
  • The Board of Trustees hired William Ross Green as a career firefighter/paramedic at an annual salary of $59,406. Mr. Green fills a vacancy in our fire department and comes from the City of Middletown Fire Department.
  • Trustees approved payment of $143,791 to the City of Fairfield as part of the JEDD agreement. As municipal partner in West Chester’s JEDD, City of Fairfield makes payment to Lakota Local Schools and the Township is then obligated to make reimbursement for this payment. This is the last payment West Chester will make to Fairfield under this agreement.
  • More than $140,000 will be spent with Loth, Inc. for replacement of office furniture in the Administration Building and in Township Hall. This is part of a larger refresh of the Administration Building and furniture prices are based on government contract pricing.
