Bath service, parks departments seeking seasonal employees
The Bath Township Board of Trustees approved beginning the hiring process for seasonal workers in the service and parks departments at the Jan. 22 meeting.
Interim Service Director and Park Director Michael Rorar said the departments will hire four to six seasonal employees, who would begin as early as May and will work through the summer. Applicants must be at least 18, hold a valid driver’s license and have graduated from high school, he added.
Trustees approved advertising for the positions for 10 days beginning Feb. 4. Ads will appear in local newspapers and on local websites, Rorar said.
Trustees also approved posting internally for a full-time administrative assistant for the Bath Fire Department. The department currently has one part-time administrative assistant, although it has employed two part-time assistants for as many as 56 hours a week, said Fire Chief Walter Hower. New Ohio regulations limit part-time employees to 30 hours a week, which is not enough time to complete work for the department, trustees said. Hower said the position first will be opened to internal candidates, including the current part-time administrative assistant. If there are no qualified internal candidates, the search will be opened to external candidates, Hower said. Letters of interest and résumés from internal candidates will be accepted through Feb. 1.
Also during the meeting, Eric Shaffer was sworn in as a part-time police officer, effective Feb. 1. He will earn the entry-level rate of $15.90 per hour and be subject to a one-year probationary period. His employment is contingent on successful completion of physical and psychological tests.
In other business, trustees approved a resolution to enter into an agreement with Summit County for pavement maintenance. This will be the third year the township has participated in the program, and it has gotten progressively better for the township each year, Rorar said.
Trustees also amended the organizational resolution to include Thomas Kamp as a part-time paramedic, correcting a clerical error that omitted him from the original document, said Executive Assistant Hannah Krumheuer.
Board President Elaina Goodrich noted the township’s second Chillin’ on the Hill event will take place Feb. 10 at 1 p.m. at the Bath Nature Preserve. The event features sled riding and winter hikes, she said.
The board’s next regular meeting will be Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. in the trustees’ meeting room of the Bath Administration Building, 3864 W. Bath Road.
