Thank you chamber to conduct Community Survey by Brian Macconnell a staff writer the Anderson area chamber of Commerce has begun to see the first results of a Survey prepared by its economic development committee. The Survey was created to try to establish the of my. Washington and Anderson township residents and the needs they see for the area. Ralph Holt a member of the committee said the design of ii Survey which will be conducted by phone began about one year ago and is modelled after a similar Survey prepared by the chamber about 10 years ago Quot we took a lot of the same questions and updated them a bit on this Survey a Holt said. A it can be of great help to us to see How the feelings of township residents Lave changed in 10 Holt said the Survey would need about 300 responses to be considered valid and about 100 responses have been received. So far. A the results of the Pilot study t the first 100 responses indicate people see a need for an adult restaurant and for movie Heaters a Holt said. These Are just the most spontaneous things that Cote to Peoples minds. They Are High on the list of priorities so far and i would presume they will be when the entire study is Complete. A a chamber president Thomas Taylor said the study was initiated in order to a look at the information and see How it could help make changes and attract people to the area. A a besides asking for feelings about businesses and entertainment in the township. The Survey also asks questions about government and recreation services and residential life. Taylor said the area s or r of n Ding the bus iness District entered on Beechmont Avenue has the highest average income in Hamilton county and that fact could help attract some of the i Inge people see. As necessary. A some businessmen Don t understand How Good our Market is in this area Quot Taylor said a and they might be missing the boat we have a very High value Market Here a the remainder of the chamber Survey will be administered Over the phone by the a Jaycees who were to have a training session tonight.

Story and pictures on Page 6a. Jou rna a photo to Bier. The Anderson township Board of trustees will probably act thursday night on the establishment of a juvenile court Extension in the township car War of to Thomas Taylor a. Member of the Board. Taylor Quot has prepared a maximum tentative budget for the court and the budget sets a maximum expenditure of $800 per Mouth for the court. Taylor however said he believes the court can be operated for much less than that amount. To think we can run it for $400 or .$500 per month a Taylor said. A a the1 budget i Drew up was for the very maximum 1 did it without considering any voluntary participation by township residents. With the response five heard already we re going to have a Fot of people willing to work As Taylor a budget estimation allows $30 per month for supplies. $400 for a salaried referee $200 for a. Presenter $50 for a clerk and $120 for Security from a sheriffs Deputy. The budget uses the figures for two five hour court sessions per month based on an estimated docket of five eases per session. The sessions would be held at the township administration building on Beech Inonu Avenue and would use current secretarial staff employed by the township to maintain records. Taylor said the extra work would be minimal and would add no extra hours to their schedule. The Cost for Security at court sessions which is required by the Hamilton county juvenile court could also be smaller than the estimate in the1 budget Taylor said. Some of the Cost for a Deputy at the court he said could already be included in the Cost of the townships Centra it with the sheriff s department. Since some a verbal pay is already included in the contract Taylor said the expense for Security could be absorbed in. The township budget. A fart of the expense for Security having a. Deputy at the court session could a tee included in. The overtime hours we be already budgeted in ii Taylor said. Two questions Are legitimate when considering the1 court Taylor said. The first is whether ii�1 township can afford to a operate the court. A the question of Money is easily answered.,�?� Taylor said. A a the figures can. Be1 presented in a straightforward Way and we decide1 we can spend the Money or we can to. 1 think the Board is prepared to commit to the court at the1 thursday meeting As far As the Money is concerned. 1 really think we can handle if the second question about the court Extension Taylor said is one that is "more1 difficult to answer. A it is harder to answer the question 4 is this a. Service the township should provide a the county has always provided services which handle the juvenile Justice system. No one has actually put the1 question to me but i can conceive of it appearing in someone s Taylor said the question of the township s responsibility for a juvenile court is a a very legitimate one. Since the court is a function which has not been handled by the township before he said people have a right to ask if it should. A it is a question which should be studied and Analysed a he1 said. A it is definitely the most difficult to answer. Although doubts an be raised he said the of a court Extension Are important enough to justify if a a this is one of Many services which can be handled locally better than any other level a Taylor said. A the key Issue is that a local person can More easily take care of a local problem it is an Issue of although he did not have statistics about a reduction in juvenile crime in Sharonville where a court Extension is currently used Taylor said All a comments he has heard from officials of the Sharonville court and county juvenile court have indicated that the court has reduced juvenile crime. Although the referee1 from the Sharonville Robert rack,., has planned to speak to the Anderson Hills kiwanis. Last night he was not Able to be at the meeting. Taylor said the fact that trustees John o Brien and Robert Dorsey will not be Able to speak with rack until he can come to the township May make them want to postpone action on the court. A i could understand if they wanted to postpone a vote until they could talk to Bob rack face to face a Taylor said. A something like this deserves careful consideration. But if that is the Case we should schedule a special meeting very soon after thursdays regular meeting to vote on the court. A a the presentation by rack has been rescheduled for april 21, Taylor said. Taylor speculated that the court May be in operation by the end of jul if the training of a referee and other court officials go As he anticipates. File stressed that his guess is not solid but is Only his own speculation. A the attitude of the Board is very Good about the court Extension a Taylor said. �?�1 think we can handle the Money and we Haven to heard one1 bad comment from anyone in the Community a ambulance service garbage and sewage service traffic and. Highway maintenance and Public transportation. It. Also asks in the third question about different types of a recreational facilities and entertainment for commercial information the Survey asks if the respondent finds the need to shop outside the area bounded by it. Washington on the West and by Cherry Grove on the1 East and goes on to ask where else the respondent goes to shop. Before asking for demographic , the final segment of the Survey asks Anderson township residents a if an election were held today would you. Be in favor or1 not in. Favor of incorporating Anderson. Township a the demographic information includes questions a bout age sex residence. Income recreational preferences. And location of Home. Holt stressed that the information about specific respondents would be Anonymous and confidential. After the completion of the Telephone interviews for ii Survey. Holt said he expected a wait of about four to six weeks to receive the results from the total responses. Sheriff to announce Post commander Hamilton county sheriff Lincoln Stokes was to announce today that sol Charles Stein will be the commander of the1 Anderson township sheriffs Deputy Post. The announcement ends the speculation that Stein would be named to the1 Job formal announcement could be made until the township trustees finalized the new contract with the sheriffs department Stein is a township resident and Stokes said that will Aid Stein in his work As Post commander. A a sol Stein is Well versed. In the Anderson township area a Stokes said. A the knows the area Well because he fives there. He is familiar with the problems and the issues which face the the main benefits of the command Post principle . Said Are two fold. He said Tine determination that one Man is in charge creates unified service for the township. A before the creation of the command Stokes said a the Man in charge could be a different one from time to time. With sol Stein in charge we will be Able to give More unified service. A the other advantage noted by Stokes is the1 presence of one Man. Available to township residents. Shakes said if the area residents know who they can go to for help police service can be More effective and residents feel secure.
