COPLEY : A local homeowners association on the township's west side is asking the Summit County Engineer's office to look at installing no parking signs on one side of neighborhood streets.
The request by the West Ridge Estates Homeowners Association says parking on both sides of the street "creates an unsafe situation for emergency vehicle access."
The streets include Wilshire Drive, Ansley Court, Remmington Avenue, Fairington Avenue, Maralroy Way, Quincy Drive, Shillings Way and Devereux Drive. Township trustees unanimously approved the request Wednesday.
In another street-related matter, trustees approved a resolution to enter into an "agreement of cooperation" between Copley Township and Summit County for right-of-way acquisition services for a Janwood Drive culvert replacement project in northwest Copley.
Township Service Director Mark Mitchell said the project also will require temporary construction and drainage easements.
In other business, trustees approved a one-year contract renewal with MOP Commercial Janitorial Service for cleaning township buildings at a cost of $20,232. "They are holding their prices the same as in the current contract," Mitchell said.
Trustees also approved a 2013 $13,205,878.63 permanent appropriations budget, $437,827.36 over 2012. Township Fiscal Officer Janice Marshall attributed the increase to a state Local Government Innovation Fund loan for a new emergency services dispatch center.
Copley is the fiscal agent for the center under construction in the Norton Fire Department and that when complete will provide dispatch services for Copley, Norton and Barberton.
