Hanover Township News

The Board of Trustees thank Hanover Township voters for approving the Fire Department Levy and General Operating Levy in 2016 and 2017. In keeping promises made to the electorate, the Board has worked with the Fire Department to order a combined Tanker/Pumper Unit to be delivered later in 2018 which will substantially assist with fire fighting operations increasing the water supply capacity at working fire scenes. By ordering a combined unit there will be a savings of over $200,000.00 realized. Originally a tanker and separate pumper unit were on the list publicized for the use of levy funds.

For the Road Department, a new large dump truck with snow plow attachments has been ordered scheduled for delivery later this year. This vehicle will replace a worn out unit and enhance road work maintenance and ice/snow control operations.

The Township has renewed an agreement with the Butler County Sheriff's office to keep and maintain the contract units exclusively serving Hanover Township. Deputies will cover the Township either on first shift or second shift overlapping such that a deputy is available seven days every week. This service and contract was one of the major items discussed for which the General Operating Funds would be used.

With respect to Park Operations, a dilapidated baseball field backstop is being replaced with a safer structure for local baseball teams to practice. The antiquated park restroom is a priority for replacement and the Township is researching matching grants to assist with a modern facility. Due to planning and matching grant issues, this project will likely carry over into 2019.

The Board of Trustees is planning a series of open houses to showcase the newly acquired equipment for the public to see the investments made for equipment. Dates will be announced later as the vehicles are delivered.
