Vrooman Road Bridge Project Update (posted June 15th; revised June 16th)

On Wednesday, June 17th, the new traffic signals at the intersection of SR-84 (South Ridge Rd), Lane Road and newly relocated Vrooman Road will be activated.

Although it was originally announced that the new Vrooman Road Bridge would open on Thursday, June 18th, due to some scheduling of work issues, the bridge opening has been been pushed back to Monday, June 22nd, in the afternoon  to southbound traffic.  This will allow traffic to travel from SR-84 to IR-90 using Vrooman Road.  At the same time, northbound Vrooman Road will be closed at IR-90 to all traffic.  Not even local traffic will be allowed to enter at this point.  All traffic will have to detour via IR-90, SR-44 and SR-84.  The project is scheduled for an October completion at which time all will be opened.

Township Annual Curbside Trash Pick-up will be held on Saturday, July 18th and July 25th. (posted June 2nd)

Spring Clean-Up – Important Notice (posted March 26th)

On March 25th, a day after awarding the Spring Clean-Up bid to Waste Management, Perry Township was officially notified of the following:

In order for Waste Management to maintain its focus on municipal solid waste collection and disposal and due to the reduced number of employees in the field, Waste Management is temporarily suspending a number of non-essential services including Perry Township’s Spring Clean-Up that was to occur on April 18th and April 25th.

This will also suspend the tire collection at the Service Department.

For several years, Waste Management is the only company to bid on the Spring Clean-Up. The Trustees are currently considering what options are available for this situation.

Senior Citizens Beware (posted July 26th)

The Trustees have been advised of a Medicare card scam that is occurring in our area. Scammers impersonating Medicare employees have been calling senior citizens requesting personal information such as a date of birth or Social Security number to upgrade your Medicare card from a paper to a plastic card which Medicare doesn’t actually offer.

What the scammers really want, of course, is to get personal or financial information for the purposes of identity theft or outright theft. To thwart a Medicare card scam, follow some basic precautions.

*Don’t share your Medicare or Social Security number (or other personal information) with anyone who contacts you out of the blue by phone or email, or shows up unannounced at your door.

*Don’t send or give your old Medicare card to anyone. Impostors may claim you need to return it. The government doesn’t need your old card back and recommends that you destroy it.

*Don’t believe a caller is a Medicare employee simply because he or she knows some information about you. Scammers will have done their homework.

From time to time, Perry Township has opportunities for residents to serve on different boards.  The openings are generally residents of the Township that are appointed by the Board of Trustees.  Some of the Boards included are the Perry Area Joint Recreation Board, the Zoning Commission, Perry Economic Development Council, Board of Zoning Appeals and the Perry Fall Festival.

If you would be interested in serving on a Board in the future, please send a letter of interest to the attention of the Perry Township Administrator.  We will keep it on file for when such an opening exists.
