Madison Twp. Never ceases to amaze

This MNJ Article is missing something?

“Madison Twp. trustees reject drainage ditches”

It should read “Madison Twp. trustees reject drainage ditches and the fact that they can NOT take advantage of those who have been legally put on Community service because they can get hurt?.

What kind of Community service can they provide then, lip service?.

Here’s the ridiculous article!;

MADISON TOWNSHIP — Madison Township Trustees rejected a motion to insert drainage ditches along Timber Road and Mayflower Drive at Monday night’s meeting after several area residents opposed the idea.

Trustees said the motion was the result of a resident complaining of flooding on her property.

“You want to help her and I agree, help her, but why jeopardize all the rest of our lawns for just one person?” asked Lois Ewing, of Timber Road.

Paula Ostheimer, of Mayflower Drive, agreed, stating the ditches would cause “pooling” of water into the area.

Trustees unanimously voted withdraw the motion to insert the ditches and to research Roush’s Run, a reported source of the area’s flooding issues.

“I’m going to get the county engineer down to Roush’s Run to see if there’s something we can do, but I can guarantee you this thing is going to go nowhere,” Trustee Chairman Dave Spain said, adding that the township would not be checking area culverts until the Roush’s Run issue is resolved.

In other business, the trustees debated how to handle reported cases of high grass.

“We’ll just keep doing what we’re doing and play it by ear until it gets done,” Spain said.

“People have community service for (crimes they’ve committed). Would that be degrading to have them come out and mow the lawn?” asked citizen Tom McGinty.

“We’re not going to be responsible if someone gets hurt out here,” Spain responded.

“That would be too bad if a guy got hurt mowing the lawn,” McGinty said sarcastically. “Just keep doing what you’re doing then: Nothing.”

Later, Spain asked McGinty to call the Richland County Sheriff and ask if mowing services are available.

McGinty said he would.

The trustees went into executive session to discuss a disciplinary matter in the fire department. No action followed.

  1. Hey, being a ‘bible demon’ doesn’t make you no firefighter, jajajaja.

  2. You could try saving as PNG (lossless as opposed to JPG), or the other thing that I can think of is that you could possibly need to rasterize your smart objects, and after that save it as being a PNG. Be careful to not save over your original PSD, because once you rasterize, you can’t un-rasterize.

    ONCE AGAIN THE MNJ GOES PUBLIC TO SHOW “THE PEOPLE” HOW STUPID THEIR REPS ARE!

    Here we have the mouthpiece (Spain) admitting to keeping the status quo when depicting they’ll continue to play things by ear rather than having a plan!. Then we have a responsible …citizen who asks a legit question and they are blown off and sent to the Sheriffs dept. where he will more than likely get into an argument and arrested – lol!, not all of us are this stupid…we know what you’re doing Spain, it’s time for folks to CLEAN HOUSE!.

    I agree with Mr McGinty, and I find it HILARIOUS that we have folks on community service who can’t do anything on the premise that they’ll get hurt – lol!. They are on community service because they hurt others, so let them get hurt and maybe they’ll keep their noses clean next time?. What the hell are YOU people thinking?. YOU people = those who are elected to represent us!. Since when are you people afraid of a lawsuit?, hell, you’re in court on a daily basis fighting those you wrongfully prosecuted, and now that your friends are on community service you have this lame excuse?. I demand you send out immediately the Athletic Director who STOLE the money you more than likely could have used for this project you BUNCH OF ASSES!.
