Recycling Center Update

The new bins are in place, but what a mess. They are overflowing and bags are everywhere on the ground. If this continues, the township will have no other option than to consider closing the recycling center permanently.

Time and time again trustees have asked to please respect the road crew and not leave the bags on the ground for them to have to spend hours cleaning up. The recycling center is here to benefit all residents, but not to make a small road crew have to take time away from their regular work to clean up after residents.

Again, trustees will be contacting the Geauga County Sheriff’s office to examine the bags left on the ground and contact those who have disregarded the posted regulations. It is a punishable offense.

2014 Township Meetings

In 2014, township trustees will continue to meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the township hall. Ed Kaminski will serve as board chairman and Nadine Pope will serve as vice chairman.

Mr. Kaminski will continue as liaison to the fire and road departments. Mrs. Pope will oversee the township hall and cemetery, and Mr. McClintock will continue as liaison for zoning and the park.

Pancakes at Hambden Grange

Hambden Grange 2482 is serving an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast Jan. 19 from 8 a.m. to 1 pm. Cost is $7 for adults and $3 for children 10 and under. The Grange is located at 9778 Old State Road in Chardon.

Christmas Tree Recycling

Hambden Township has once again received a grant for Christmas tree recycling. Christmas trees can be placed in the container at the township park through Jan. 19. Please note that there will not be anyone to assist you. Please do not leave the trees on the ground for the road crew to pick up.

Park Board Opening

The park board is in need of another township resident who would be willing to help serve in the planning and decision making process for the future of the township park. If anyone is interested and would like more information, please call the township office at 440-286-4364.

A Plowing Reminder

Please remember that when plowing the driveway, snow must remain on one’s property. It cannot be left in roadways or just pushed across the road. This is a hazard to your neighbors and can also make the mail carrier’s job more difficult.
