The Perrysburg Township trustees acted on a number of matters involving the zoning department, including an increase in the zoning inspector’s wage.
At the November 15 meeting, the trustees approved a pay increase  of 5.3 percent for Kelly Moore effective with the next pay period.
The 5.3 percent increase brings Ms. Moore’s salary from $76,817 to $80,939 annually.
The zoning inspector has been with the township since late 2012 when she was hired to replace retiring inspector Grant Garn.
Prior to working for the township, she was employed by the Wood County Planning Commission.
Following the meeting, Trustee Gary Britten said the wage adjustment was made to be competitive with salaries for similar positions in the region.
He noted that Administrator Jon Eckel had been reviewing all administrative salaries. “Kelly’s was the last one we looked at,” the trustee said.
In other zoning matters, the trustees contracted with iWorQ Systems to provide payment processors for an additional annual fee of $900.
The trustees also reviewed the zoning report for October 1 through November 30. The department issued 15 permits and collected $4,979.
The greatest number of permits issued were three for fencing. That was followed by accessory structure, signage and denial/appeal, two each; and single family home, deck, industrial, zoning compliance certificate, swimming pool and home occupation, one apiece.
In her report, Ms. Moore noted that the site plan review for Wendy’s to be located at the former Big Boy, 10705 Fremont Pike, was approved by the county planning commission.
She noted updates to language and other parts of the zoning resolution to include acronyms such as Nimby, not in my back yard, and Yimby, yes in my backyard.
The trustees also set a public hearing for 4 p.m., Wednesday, December 6, to consider a request to rezone 34.37 acres from A-1 agricultural to R-5 multifamily. Applicants Carol Brossia-Stephens, et al, submitted the request for the Lime City Road parcel which is located in the Rossford School District.
Ms. Moore’s report concluded with approval of a request to attend the American Planning Association workshop at Mannik and Smith in Maumee for $40.
Other Business
In other business, the trustees:
•Heard from Mr. Eckel that Rossford expects to reopen Lime City Road to thru traffic in the next week or so.
“They have been waiting four months for Toledo Edison  to move the poles,” he explained.
•Approved a change order and authorized additional work for the salt shed.
The changes, which total $15,000, are for a partial front cover, a thicker floor extending from 6 feet to 12 feet  and to breakout additional bedrock.
•Reviewed the detective report through mid November. Detectives are handling a number of new cases involving fraud, theft, sexual assault  and a missing person.
•Entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Wood County sheriff’s office to participate in the computer aided dispatch system through the sheriff’s department.
The county will act as the administrative agent for the updated CentralSquare dispatch and communications system for police, fire and EMS countywide.
•Tabled a request for qualifications of firms for the administration building project due to the absence of Trustee Joe Schaller.
•Approved the annual agreement for stormwater management services with Wood County at a cost of $11,046.
•Heard from Marvin Conner, road and maintenance supervisor, that leaf pick up is ongoing.
“There are a lot of leaves out there. We are trying to get it done, but it’s taking quite awhile.”
The next trustees meeting will be held at 4 p.m., Wednesday, December 6, at the township meeting hall, 26609 Lime City Road, and is open to the public.
