In this edition of the Dover Township newsletter, we introduce you to the new Zoning Inspector, say goodbye to the former, and review the changes to our Zoning Resolution. You’ll also hear from our Road Superintendent with a reminder about landscape disposal and preparations for winter road conditions.
Lifelong Tuscarawas County resident Don Wallick became Dover Township’s new Zoning Inspector in July. On his new position, Don said, “I like working with people. I’ve worked with the public my entire life, and this is an extension of that. The township has been good to me over the years, and it’s nice to give back.”
The Dover Township trustees thank Dave Weber for serving as the township’s Zoning Inspector for six years (2015 – 2021). During his time with Dover Township, Dave worked hard to enforce the existing zoning guidelines and most recently oversaw the updating of the Zoning Resolution.
During a June 23 public hearing, Dover Township’s Zoning Commission presented recommendations for changes and additions to the township’s zoning resolution, last updated in 2004. The trustees reviewed these recommendations during their July 6 meeting and approved them following a public hearing on July 20.
This spring and summer, our road crew worked hard to chip and seal over five miles and pave over two miles of roadways. While our road crew does still have some mowing to complete while the weather permits, we are primarily gearing up for upcoming winter weather.
