Sheila Hiddleson, Delaware County health commissioner, told Harlem Township trustees last month that there have been no reports of West Nile virus in Delaware County.
Hiddleson did say there was a reported first death in northern Ohio from the West Nile virus.
Spraying is done when there is a mosquito in a trap that has been identified with the West Nile virus, Hiddleson said; and there were no bats with rabies tested this year in Delaware County.
Vicki Tieche, with the Harem Heritage Committee, was in chambers to discuss the bulletin board at Harlem Township Park. Tieche asked trustees if they would consider paying for half of the bulletin board. Trustees agreed to the request.
Tieche also brought up the issue of security for the park’s Harlem School Memorial. Trustees said the park restroom light would be adjusted to shine on the memorial.
Mike Kabler, with the Park Tree Committee, asked trustees if they would replace the trees that have died at the township park. Trustees agreed to replace the dead trees.
Trustees accepted the resignations of part-time firefighter Erik Schieber and full-time firefighter Branden Rogers; Rogers will become a part-time employee as a firefighter/paramedic.
