Batavia Trustees wind up business

The Batavia Township Board of Trustees cleared up a few end-of-the-year items at the Dec. 19 meeting, including discussing the $3.5 million budget for 2007 and the formal organization of the board.

Trustee Deborah Clepper will remain chair and Trustee Lee Cornett vice chair, while Trustees Archie Wilson and Clepper will serve on the fire department committee and Cornett will move to the cemetery committee.

The trustees also announced plans to hold only one meeting in January, which will be at 6 p.m. Jan. 9. The trustees also announced a Sept. 22 Clermont Philharmonic concert for 2007 and discussed an expansion of King’s Way Fellowship, a church in Batavia, that will be building a new youth center. The church has grown to more than 800 members and plans to hand out 1,500 food baskets to the needy this Christmas season.
