Liston Burton Retirement - October 2012

Sincere thanks to Liston Burton for the many years of dedicated service to the township - he will be greatly missed! Liston was always looking for ways to save the taxpayers money, making equipment last as long as possible by taking excellent care of it, and fabricating fixes when necessary.  Try to enjoy your retirement Liston, you have earned it!

Fire Department Request

Residents, please be aware of height clearance requirements needed for a fire truck to access your driveway.  If you have low overhanging branches, it would be best to remove them to allow easy access to your residence by the fire department.  Thank you!


“Historic Warren County”

The Heritage Advisory Council has compiled an updated story of our region.  This colorful, limited edition history is available from member agencies for $35.  The history may be purchased at the Mary L. Cook Public Library in Waynesville, or the Warren County Historical Society in Lebanon.


Slow Moving Vehicles and Bike Races

Residents are urged to use caution when our farmers are on the roadways.  They have to move about, and will occasionally slow down traffic; a bit of patience is appreciated!   There will be bike races throughout the summer on our roadways; please be patient and use caution!  Thank you very much!



House Number Signs

Green vertical house number signs for your mailbox post are available for purchase from the Clinton-Warren Joint Fire District at 82 Spring Hill Road in Clarksville.  They are $15 each, and checks can be made out to the Clinton-Warren Joint Fire District.  Call (937) 289-2427 Monday through Saturday between 6am to 4pm to make arrangements, or just stop by.  If you are unable to mount the sign yourself, the Fire Department can handle this for you



Robberies in Township

There have been several robberies this past year in our township and in neighboring areas.  Citizens are advised to lock homes vehicles and storage buildings, and keep outside lighting on at night.  Please be aware of any unusual or suspicious behavior in your neighborhood, and report it to the Warren County Sheriff at 513-695-1289.  Also if you come across someone selling tools and equipment very cheaply, these might be stolen goods.  Report this as well.  Thank you!


It is also advised to check with your insurance companies to make sure that all your tools and equipment are properly covered in the event of a theft.  



High-Speed Internet

Many residents would like to have high-speed Internet available in the township (some of you already do, but many do not).  A new organization called “Connect Ohio” is taking petitions from residents in unserved areas in an effort to improve service in rural Ohio.  To find out more, visit their website at www.connectohio.org.  You can click on the middle gray ball that says “Broadband is not available to me yet” to notify the organization of your address, or download a petition form to have your neighbors sign up as well.


Parts of the township are able to be served by CenturyLink’s DSL connections.  Others use an air card provided by cell phone carriers.
