Union Township trustees share updates regarding meetings

CHESAPEAKE, Ohio — The Union Township Board of Trustees in Lawrence County is altering some of its meetings because of the coronavirus.

Due to COVID-19 and precautions needed, the monthly trustees meeting for April will still be Thursday, April 2, but will begin at 5 p.m. and will be held outdoors, standing only, at the Township Lot, located at 66 County Road 3, Chesapeake. A 6-foot distance will be enforced for all in attendance.

In January, it was reported that trustees would change meeting times to 6 p.m. instead of 7 p.m. Due to circumstances, trustees voted at the March meeting to change the time back to 7 p.m. for regular session meetings, to be held the first Thursday of each month, unless posted otherwise in The Herald-Dispatch in advance.
