 JOEL BENDER – WHITAKER MYERS

JOEL BENDER GAVE A BRIEF SUMMARY AND MADE A FEW CHANGES THIS YEAR. WE DID DECREASE THE AUTO 2005 FORD EXPLORER AND WE ADDED BOTH LENNY AND RONALD TO THE EMPLOYEE DISHONESTY COVERAGE RATHER THAN BONDS THIS YEAR. WHEN DOMINIC GET RE-ELECTED OR THE PERSON GETS ELECTED, THAT PERSON WILL BE ADDED WHEN YOUR BOND RUNS OUT OR WHEN YOUR TERM RUNS OUT. WE INCREASED THE PROPERTIES AND THE BUILDINGS, DELETED SOME EQUIPMENT AND ADDED EQUIPMENT. WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID THE PREMIUM THIS YEAR IS $23,905.00 AND ADVANTAGE CREDIT $1,348.00. THE RENEWAL PREMIUM WILL BE $22,567.00.  WHICH IS AN INCREASE $418.00 FROM LAST YEAR.

DOMINIC OLIVERIO ASKED WE LEASE THE NATURE PRESERVE OFF OF THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY AND IF HISTORICAL SOCIETY HOSTS AN EVENT AND SOMEONE GETS HURT. SO, WE LEASE THE TRAILS YOU CAN WALK ON AND THEY OWN THE MILL WHICH IS LIKE THE BUILDING. THE PAVILION IS OURS ESSENTIALLY THROUGH THE LEASE AND TRAILS THROUGH THE LEASE. IF SOMEBODY GETS HURT ON ONE OF THEIR EVENTS, IS THAT A LIABILITY FOR US. SHOULD WE HAVE AN ADDITIONAL INSURANCE?

JOEL BENDER STATED HERE IS WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN. YOU THROUGH THE LEASE WITH THE NATURE PRESERVE, YOU GUYS’ LEASE AND OWN TEMPORARY OWNERSHIP A LEASE CONTROL THE WALKING PATHS AND THE PAVILION THAT IS OUT THERE. IF YOU WANT TO ALLOW ANOTHER ORGANIZATION TO USE THAT PAVILION FOR AT AN EVENT. ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS HAVE CERTIFICATE INSURANCE FROM THAT OTHER ENTITY, STATING THAT THE TOWNSHIP IS NAME IS AN ADDITIONAL INSURER ON THEIR PROPERTY FOR THAT EVENT.  THAT GIVES YOU LIABILITY COVERAGE FOR THAT.

REGARDLESS, IF THEY HAVE IT OR NOT, WE’RE GOING TO PROTECT YOU. YOU OBLIVIOUSLY DON’T WANT TO BE PROVIDING THE INSURANCE FOR THEM FOR THEIR EVENT BECAUSE NOW WE HAVE EVENT. IF THEY’RE NOT GOING TO HAVE INSURANCE FOR… THEIR NEEDS TO BE CHARGE SOMEWHERE, WE ARE GOING TO HOLD INSURANCE FOR IT.

MY RECOMMENDATION WOULD BE TO PUT SOME SORT OF USAGE AGREEMENT TOGETHER, BETWEEN YOU AND THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY AND JUST HAVE THEM NAME YOU AS AN ADDITIONAL INSURER ON THEIR INSURANCE POLICY AND EVERYTHING WILL BE FIND AT THAT POINT.

IF YOU NEED A COPY OF A USAGE AGREEMENT FOR THAT KIND OF STUFF.  WE HAVE LOTS DIFFERENT VERSION FOR THOSE KIND OF THINGS.

SO, I CAN HELP YOU WITH THAT. WE CAN EASILY TAKE CARE OF THAT FOR YOU.

22-0010-02 PROPERTY & LIABILITY INSURANCE

A RESOLUTION TO PURCHASE THE PROPERTY AND LIABILITY INSURANCE THROUGH WHITAKER-MYERS AT A COST OF $22,567.00.

MOTION TO PASS BY LENNY BROOME, SECONDED BY RON BROWNING.

ROLL CALL: LENNY BROOME – YES, RON BROWNING – YES, DOMINIC OLIVERIO – YES.

 DOMINIC OLIVERIO STATED TO JOEL BENDER THAT WE HAVE AN USAGE AGREEMENT FORM.

JOEL BENDER REVIEWED OUR USAGE AGREEMENT AND HE STATED HE WOULD ONLY ADD IS THAT IF IT IS REGULAR ORGANIZATION AND IF IT IS AN INDIVIDUAL WOULD HAVE A FAMILY PICNIC.  WE ARE NOT CONCERNED ABOUT THAT.  WHAT WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT AN ORGANIZATION OR COMPANY THAT COMES IN AND HAS BIG EVENT SOME SORT, OVER THERE.  IN HERE THE INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT IS GREAT THEY ARE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING BUT BEYOND ON THAT I WOULD MAKE IT MANDATORY IF YOU’RE AN ORGANIZATION. THEY HAVE INSURANCE IT DOES COST THEM ONLY $15.00 – $25.00 TO ADD YOU  AS THE ADDITIONAL INSURER OR LESS TO THEIR POLICY FOR THAT EVENT.  SO, I WOULD THINK A REQUIREMENT FOR A GROUP OR ORGANIZATION IT COULD BE ANYTHING LIKE KIWANIS, LIONS CLUB, COULD BE BOY SCOUTS. ALL THOSE ORGANIZATIONS HAVE INSURANCE POLICY AND IT DOESN’T COST THEM ANYTHING ADDING YOU WHEN THEY ARE HAVING EVENT AS ADDITIONAL INSURER ON THEIR POLICY. THAT IS JUST FINE, JUST ADD THAT THE ADDITIONAL INSURER STATUS ON THE CERTIFICATE OF THEIR INSURANCE.

A RESOLUTION ADOPTING THE STANDARD ALLOWANCE AND ALLOCATING FUNDS FOR A PROJECT

WHEREAS, the Township has received a distribution of monies (the “ARPA Funds”) from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (“ARPA” or the “Act”); and

WHEREAS, Congress passed the Act effective March 11, 2021; and

WHEREAS, Section 603 created the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund which, among other things, appropriated money to cities, nonentitlement units of local government, and counties to mitigate the fiscal effects stemming from the public health emergency with respect to the Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19); and

WHEREAS, Section 603(c) generally provides that:

(1) USE OF FUNDS. Subject to paragraph (2), and except as provided in paragraphs (3) and (4), a metropolitan city, nonentitlement unit of local government, or county shall only use the funds provided under a payment made under this section to cover costs incurred by the metropolitan city, nonentitlement unit of local government, or county, by December 31, 2024 –

aid to impacted industries such as tourism, travel, and hospitality;

(B) to respond to workers performing essential work during the COVID–19 public health emergency by providing premium pay to eligible workers of the metropolitan city, nonentitlement unit of local government, or county that are performing such essential work, or by providing grants to eligible employers that have eligible workers who perform essential work;

(C) for the provision of government services to the extent of the reduction in revenue of such metropolitan city, nonentitlement unit of local government, or county due to the COVID–19 public health emergency relative to revenues collected in the most recent full fiscal year of the metropolitan city, nonentitlement unit of local government, or county prior to the emergency; or

(D) to make necessary investments in water, sewer, or broadband infrastructure.

WHEREAS, Department of Treasury Final Rule, published on January 6, 2022,

and effective April 1, 2022, provides in part that: Treasury presumes that up

to $10 million in revenue has been lost due to the public health emergency

and recipients are permitted to use that amount (not to exceed the award amount)

to fund “government services.”  [The “standard allowance”].

WHEREAS, the Rule further observes that:

The standard allowance provides an estimate of revenue loss that is based on an extensive analysis of average revenue loss across states and localities, and offers a simple, convenient way to determine revenue loss particularly for Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund’s smallest recipients. This change is intended to promote administrative efficiency and simply revenue loss calculation for smaller recipients.

WHEREAS, the Rule further clarifies that recipients can use:

SLFRF funds on government services up to the revenue loss amount, whether that be the standard allowance amount or the amount calculated using the [Final Rule four-step process].  Government services generally include any service traditionally provided by a government, unless treasury has stated otherwise.

WHEREAS, some common examples of “government services” expressly recognized by Treasury are as follows:

  • Road building and maintenance, and other infrastructure
  • Health services
  • General government administration, staff, and administrative facilities
  • Environmental remediation
  • Provision of police, fire, and other public safety services (including purchase of fire trucks and police vehicles)

  • Deposit into pension funds
  • Satisfaction of settlements or judgments
  • Contributions to financial reserves or “rainy day” funds

WHEREAS, the Board of Trustees has identified a project which, in the judgment of the Board, qualifies as a permitted use of the ARPA Funds, in direct support of governmental services, which consists of the following:

___Such other projects trustees may bring forth from time to time.(the “Project”).

  1. The Township elects to use the standard allowance and its presumption of revenue loss due to the public health emergency and to use the amount authorized herein to fund government services
  2. The Project is hereby authorized and shall be paid for from the ARPA Funds in the amount of/an amount not to exceed: $371,028.25.
