Mr. Bob Ripich with AT&F Metals on Swinehart Road discussed with the Board the water drainage issue on Swinehart Road and his business expansion and how to elevate flooding issues.  Mr. Ripich pointed out that the pipe gong under Swinehart road is 18” and he was going to put in 24” pipe and wondered where the water would go when it leaves his property.  Mr. Joseph Rabatin stated he had looked at that area last week and there were various pipe sizes going through there and some of them were silted up.  Mr. Rabatin further stated he would like to see 24” pipe going under Swinehart road instead of the 18” pipe.  Mr. Jim Orr stated he was concerned with putting more water to the owners on the other side of Swinehart road and felt the water should go into the retention pond on AT&F Metals property.  Mr. Blake Meier stated the ditch after AT&F Metals could be opened up to allow for more drainage.  Mr. Daniel Hodge stated that the Township could open up the end of the ditch and keep the crossover pipes at 18”.  Mr. Joseph Rabatin stated that he wanted to be clear that the Township was not making any promises there will not be any more flooding.  Mr. Joseph Rabatin stated he would like all the spouting drains on the South building hooked into the AT&F’s detention drain system instead of going out to the ditch.

Mr. Ripich stated to summarize he would put in 18” pipe start to finish on his property line and tie one of the downspouts into his 12” line and put a backflow preventer on the other downspout outlet or tie it into the 12” pipe also, and that the Township would try to open up the ditch at the end of his property.  Everyone agreed.

Mr. Mike Rowe with Waynedale youth softball informed the Board he had 10 youth teams this year and is in need of an additional field requesting to possibly put one at the East Union Township Park where the Legion and Township fields are.  After discussion, the Board stated that he needed to get some elevations for the area he was looking at
