Farrell said that the township’s general fund is currently in good shape, but that may not always be the case.
“In the future, with the funding cuts that are in place, we will need to look at creative ways to generate income,” Farrell said.
He also suggested the township rent major equipment from the Geauga County Engineer’s Office that is not used often instead of purchasing it.
Additionally, Farrell said his occupation gives him great knowledge of how to improve the township’s roads and he has already worked with township colleagues in a positive way.
“I am sure we could think of many other ideas to help small townships. Certainly thinking outside the box and being good stewards with the tax payers money will be important in this economy,” he said.
