The Madison Township trustees took some financial actions for 2022.

On Dec. 28, the trustees approved temporary appropriations for 2022 and set the salaries and health care/life benefits for elected officials at Ohio Revised Code statutory limits.

According to a chart supplied by Madison Township Administrator Susan Brobst, trustee compensation per day—not to exceed 200 days per year—is now $121.52, which is $24,304 per year and distributed on a monthly basis.

In 2021, the per day pay was $119.43. The 2022 pay reflects a 1.75 percent increase.

The compensation for the township fiscal officer for 2022 is $33,297 and reflects the same 1.75 percent increase from 2021.

According to the Ohio Revised Code, township trustee and fiscal officer salaries are based on the township’s annual budget.

The trustees also approved a one-year contract, not to exceed $9,400, with Easterday’s Cleaning Service for cleaning the police department building.

Fire station named for Dildine
Retiring Madison Township Trustee Ed Dildine, who spent 12 years as a Madison Township trustee and 40 years as a township firefighter, was honored during his final meeting with the news that a township firehouse now bears his name.

Trustee Chairman John Pritchard told Dildine that Madison Township Station 183, located in an area where the retired firefighter started his career, will now be called Edward Dildine Station 183.

“You are like a father to me,” Trustee Michele Reynolds told Dildine and added it was a privilege to serve alongside him.

She then presented him with a certificate from the governor recognizing the station dedication as well as Dildine’s work and dedication to the township and community.

“On behalf of the fire department I thank you for all of your 40 years as a firefighter and 12 years as a trustee,” said Madison Township Fire Chief Derek Robinson. “You played such an important role in having that (station) built.”
