Aug. 17--Wednesday meeting
Approved a 20-year agreement between the Stark County Sanitary Engineer's Office and Aqua Ohio to provide water to most of Lake Township in the Stark County Metropolitan Sewer District.
The rates start off at $2.85 per thousand gallons of water the first four years of the agreement and eventually will rise to $3.85 the last four years of the deal. The meter charge would be about $284 a month and would rise to about $317 a month. Aqua Ohio would pay a reimbursement of up to $25,000 to the county if the county demolishes the Pine Street NW elevated storage tank within the first four years of the agreement.
--Rescinded approval of two lease agreements between Adult Probation Intensive Supervision Probation and Liberty Ford. Adult Probation was going to lease two 2017 Ford Fusions from Liberty, but the county's purchasing manager, Jean Young, said Ford no is longer issuing leases available to the county that were not lease-to-own arrangements. Because the department doesn't want to own the vehicles, it asked the commissioners to rescind the agreements.
--Set the date for the public auction of unwanted county property and equipment for 10 a.m. Oct. 14 at the Stark County Garage, 1801 Mahoning Road NE, Canton. Whipple Auction and Realty will provide services for 5 percent of auction proceeds with a minimum of $1,500.

--Approved an agreement with the city of Canton to allow the city to keep its IT equipment in the county's IT center.
