COUNTY BRIEFING

Salem seeks Citizens of Honor

The Salem Historical Society is accepting nominations for the 2020 Citizens of Honor recognition. The inaugural class of 24 citizens was installed in 2006 during the Salem Bicentennial with two-three new inductees added yearly thereafter. The criteria are for Salem-connected citizens, from the present or past, who have distinguished themselves with service to their community, their career, and/or to their country. The intent is to honor three Citizens of Honor at the Annual Founders’ Day Dinner on Tuesday, April 28. Any field of accomplishment can be considered and should be described fully. Involvement in the community and other activities should be included when making a nomination for the committee to consider. For further information and to obtain an application, please contact the Museum at 330-337-8514 or e-mail TheSalemHistoricalSocietty@gmail.com. Completed nominations are to be submitted to Judi Allio — chairwoman of the committee who is pictured here — no later than March 1. All nominations will be kept on file for present and future consideration. The address for submitting nominations is 208 S. Broadway to the attention of the “Citizens of Honor” committee.

Madison to share information

Madison Township trustees will host an informational meeting at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the township hall. The topic will be 900 acres on state Route 45 that was transferred from West Point Development, LLC to West Point Renewable, LLC, which is owned by a refuge company. A discussion will be held concerning the proposed intent of the location being used as a recycling transfer station, separating recyclable materials from waste and then sending them on to the proper facilities for processing from there. The trustees’ regular meeting will follow at 6 p.m.
