Union Township Trustee Meeting:
The February 28th Union Township Trustee meeting went by very quickly – it was over in 14 minutes. Points of interest were that the Ashley Furniture Store is opening on March 15 in the building that previously housed Borders Bookstore. The Capital Investment Company is planning to build upscale apartments at Ivy Pointe with building starting in March. The Chocolate Pizza Company is opening in the Jungle Jim’s Eastgate location on Friday, March 1st.
There were no public hearings.
The trustees approved a resolution to allow application for funding of a new ambulance for Station 49. They also approved a resolution to increase the wages of non-bargaining unit and/or non-contract employees by 1%. This involves fourteen of the township employees.
The next meeting scheduled for March 14th will take place at 8 pm instead of the usual time of 7 pm.
Union Township CIC Meeting:
Timothy Donnellon (trustee), Robert McGee (trustee), Matthew Beamer (trustee), Ron Campbell (fiscal officer) and Cory Wright (Planning and Zoning Director) retired for eighteen minutes, following the trustee meeting.

The board of the UTCIC decided to retain the same officers for this year, 2013, as designated last year in 2012. They then approved the sale of .087 acres located at 516 Old State Route 74 to the Ohio State Department of Transportation. They authorized a lease agreement for The Boys and Girls Club of Clermont County at the same property – 516 Old State Route 74. The sale of 4372 Mt.
