Lawrence Township trustees

Monday meeting

KEY ACTION: Bought two automated external defibrillators (AEDs) from Stryker Corp. for a total of $3,112.

DISCUSSION: An AED is a medical device used to help someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. They will be located at the road garage and on the main floor of the township administration building. Trustees agreed that the AEDs were needed at the town hall because it is a polling place.


  • Bought turnout gear for the Fire Department for $2,500 from Fire Force.
  • At the Stark County Health Department’s request, agreed to spend $750 to dig more test holes for restrooms at the township park.

UP NEXT: Will meet in regular session at 5:30 p.m. April 24 at the township administration building. Meetings may be viewed in real time on Zoom. A link is posted on the township’s website.
