During its regular meeting Sept 11, the Johnstown Township Board of Trustees voted to move forward with a weed control special assessment district for Fine Lake. Township Supervisor Barbra Earl said the action is routine.

This is not the first assessment for weed control on Fine Lake, she said; it’s more of a renewal of a previous district. The lake in the southwestern part of the township covers about 320 acres.

A public hearing is scheduled at 7 p.m. Oct. 10 so the board can hear the opinions of constituents regarding the weed control district.

On Wednesday, board members also discussed the Johnstown Township Fire Department spaghetti dinner Oct 12. Money raised will go toward the purchase a new air trailer for the fire department. There is no set cost to attend the dinner, but donations will be accepted. The dinner will be at the fire department, 13641 S. M-37 Highway.
