Public Input:  

Supervisor Dawson recognized Clayton Walenta. Clayton Walenta advised that he believes there was a partnership between the Medina Township and the Medina Mossville Youth Baseball Softball Association.  The Townships owns Medina Park and spends tax dollars to maintain and improve the facility while MMYBSA provides sweat equity and co-funds projects like safety netting and hand dryers. When compliments about the facility are received, the township and volunteers past and present are acknowledged and recognized.  MMYBSA works to promote the partnership in many ways. On April 8th, the board was advised of concerns on how the parents association has been treated during the winter by the township supervisor when MMBSA property was moved without communications disturbing their operations and efficiency. The issue has been discussed with the supervisor but remain unresolved.  Additional issues discussed were repairs to the Medina Park concession stand East garage and security alarm trips as additional information/details have been requested. He also did not feel that the Supervisor recognizes the partnership and views the park as owned by the township with only an agreement for the association to use the park. The issues are being brought to the board attention as he feels that they remain unresolved.
