Mrs. Matacic asked for public comments.

Dean Swartz, 5562 Liberty Woods Drive, spoke regarding the election being held
the next day. He asked people to vote. He spoke about stop signs that were installed
on Yankee Road. He stated that if the signs were put up to slow down traffic, that they
were illegal.

Both Mr. Kern and Mrs. Matacic replied that The Butler County Engineers had been
studying the intersection recently and a number of residents encouraged them to take a
look at it again. Mrs. Matacic said that the statistics showed that it was one of the worst
intersections in Liberty Township. She also said that their studies are continuing to
make sure that is all that is needed for that intersection.

Frank Catanzaro, 5791 Kyles Station Road, spoke regarding litter on the roads due
to construction sites. He asked if there was something that could be done.

Mrs. Matacic said that unless you physically see it coming from someone, you really
couldn’t do anything. Mr. Kern said that he feels that we should say something if you
see people littering.

Mr. Catanzaro also mentioned the mud on the street problem.

Mr. West suggest that he could put together a letter to hand out with the building
permit asking that the contractor picks up all the trash and clean up the mud.

Mr. Catanzaro also mentioned that the trucks are speeding up and down Kyles Station
Road. Mr. Kern suggested that the Sheriff’s Deputies spend more time checking the
traffic and to set up the speed trailer.

Mrs. Minneci stated that we are working with Butler County to have the Trustys pick up
trash along the roads.

Mark Perin, Kyles Station Road, spoke regarding the speeding problem and the
trash problem and asked that we impose a charge to the developers that is refundable if
they leave the site clean.

Mrs. Matacic asked for business items.

Mr. West presented the Zoning Report. He said that there are four cases for the Zoning
Commission. They are all final PUD plan approvals. Mr. West read the four zoning
cases.

Mr. Plummer responded to the statements regarding mud on the roads. He asked that
if the residents see this to call the Service Garage and he will call the County Inspector
and he will come out and look and generally the problem is resolved.

Chief Stumpf presented a request to extend offers of employment to ten (10) part time
firefighters due the addition of Station 3 and also because most of the full timers hired
last year were former part time employees. The testing has been completed. The next
step will be for them to complete their physical exams.

FIREFIGHTERS, BEN BRINCK, NICHOLAS JACQUEMIN, MATTHEW KNOLLMAN,

Mrs. Minneci presented a resolution to enter into an agreement with the Butler County
Commissioners to apportion road construction costs in and around Cincinnati Dayton
Road. Mrs. Minneci read the agreement and said that the agreement was discussed in
their work session last week where all of the trustees were present and any changes
that were made in the agreement have been shown to all the trustees, including Mr.
Shelley and he is in agreement with the revisions.

Mr. Kern MOVED THAT THE TRUSTEES ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT WITH THE

Mr. Kern mentioned that at the last meeting we included a restriction and regulation on
the display of the American flag throughout the township, including private residences.
Mr. Kern recommended that the Township strikes from the Zoning Code any reference
to the display and size of the American or State flag. Mrs. Matacic said that
modifications to the code may be made at the May 16, 2005 trustee meeting.

Mrs. Matacic reminded everyone of the Southwest Warren County Transportation Study
from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. May 3 in Lebanon, Ohio. Mr. Kern stated that he wanted them
to know that an extension of I-71 and I-75 would indeed affect our local roads and that
they will reciprocate with us. He asked that whoever attends the meeting on the
Township’s behalf needs to convey his message.

Mrs. Minneci said she has conveyed the Township’s limitations regarding Bethany Road
to the City of Mason.

There being no more business to come before the Board, Mr. Kern moved to adjourn.
Mrs. Matacic seconded. The motion passed and MEETING ADJOURNED.
