At the Pike Township meeting on July 3, Tri-Co Horse Club representative Clarence Flowers reported more than 400 riders participated in the American Quarter Horse ride. He explained this was made possible, in part, because of facility improvements funded by the landfill community grant.

Fire Chief Arnie Adams reported the homecoming went well, even with inclement weather. He explained the department has been conducting some training burns at the Aero Pallet facility.

Road Supervisor Mark Pahanish stated the driveway at the Dueber station was sealed.

Secretary Molly Murphy stated a public works person has been clearing vegetation in the cemetery. Trustee Doug Baum asked Murphy how long the Reed record request has been going on. Murphy stated December 2016. She has had to reschedule a few times because of funerals. Obviously, appeasing the request has interfered with the regular office work. Baum asked how close to done the work was. Murphy was not sure.

Trustee Don Charnetzky reported being contacted by the head of drug awareness at Sandy Valley for permission to place the recent drug article from the township newsletter on the Sandy Valley website. Lou Ann Vukovitch also offered to attend a meeting to discuss the drug problem.

Trustees decided to set the regular meeting Aug. 7 to concentrate on the epidemic and how it affects area residents.

The next regular meeting will be July 17, 7:30 p.m. at the township building.
