The Madison Township Board of Trustees will be holding a special meeting on Friday, March 7th at 4:00pm to discuss the following:
~ Township owned real estate on McMackin Road
~ Discussion on Lake Shore Farms area
~ Executive Session to discuss a present lease agreement on Stanton Park
Did you receive an offer from Universal Disposal?
The township does not have an exclusive contract with Universal Disposal, they simply wanted the opportunity to offer special pricing for recycling & garbage pick up to the residents of Madison.
As you may know, the township's recycling center has been funded by Lake County for the past 5 years through a grant program. After 2014 the grant program will come to a close and the County will no longer be able to fund the center. Which means the township has to determine how to pay for the cost of having the materials hauled to the transfer station, among other costs. With the cuts the State has made over the last two years, the township may not be able to afford to fund it.
The trustees felt that by allowing Universal Disposal to make this offer to the residents it could help alleviate the amount the center takes in which will reduce some of the costs to the township, allowing the township to keep the center open.
If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us at (440) 428-5128.

Reducing Runoff with a Rain Barrel
Any hard surface around your house can create runoff - from your roof to your driveway to your patio. If you collect this water and use it around your yard, you will help reduce the amount of water that flushes through a stream during a storm, and filter out some of the pollutants as well. You might even reduce your water utility bill in the summer.
Rain barrels are installed on downspouts around your house. They collect the rain that would otherwise empty into a storm drain or into a muddy spot in your yard. Up to 55 gallons of rainwater can be stored in a repurposed plastic food barrel from every April shower or July cloudburst. This water is free, and also free of utility water additives, such as chlorine and fluoride. Making it ideal to water your garden, lawn or landscaping.
Lake SWCD collaborates with Lake Metroparks to provide rain barrel construction workshops
Workshops for 2014 are scheduled for April 24, May 9, June 11 and August 14 at the Lake County Fairgrounds Natural Resources Building from 7-8pm; May 22 at Penitentiary Glen from 7-8pm; July 12 at Penitentiary Glen from 9-10 am.
You can also call the Lake SWCD office to make arrangements to pick up a pre-made barrel anytime during business hours.For more information, contact the Lake County Stormwater Management Department at 350-5900 or visit the website www.lakecountyohio.gov/smd.
Sewers Clean: Stormwater goes
directly from the storm drains into our streams, creeks, and lake -
without being cleaned first!
Storm sewers are meant for rain water only. When we blow our leaves, wash our vehicles in the driveway, blow our grass clippings into the street, or throw those cigarette butts and other garbage out the window it all goes to our streams and rivers and then into our beautiful Lake Erie. We can all do something to keep our lake, rivers, and streams clean and the effort is equal to the effort it takes to dirty them!
Visit our Stormwater Management link on the right for useful information that you can use to help maintain healthy storm water sewers. Definitely visit the Lake County Stormwater Management Department's website directly at www.lakecountyohio.gov/smd. There is eye-opening information there that will, hopefully, motivate you to take care of our storm sewers, and ultimately, our lakes, streams, and rivers.
Lake County has put together a document with information on where to dispose of yard waste & such, which can be accessed on their recycling page. Scroll down and look for the red text stating "Click here for additional recycling options".
How can you help prevent flooding? To start, do not pile your leaves and yard waste in a storm culvert (ditch). For more information that guide you on how to keep our storm sewers clean, click here. You can also check out this WKYC video to learn more about the watershed in your area.
Trustee Meeting: The next trustee meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 11th, 2014 with the workshop starting at 6:00pm and the regular meeting at 7:00pm.
The Lake Colunty Solid Waste District has published their Special Collection Dates for 2014. The next collection will be the computer collection that will take place on April 26th from 9am-1pm at the Lake County Fairgrounds Commercial Building. Please see their website for further information and other collections coming up.
