It was 8,540 on the official count Day last october during the Peak kindergarten enrolment peaked at around 800.

Trustees Friday night said they had no interest in merely delaying the action by tying it up in courts. Trustees Tom Taylor and Bob Dorsey said that spending thousands of dollars of the township general fund to fight the action was not justifiable. Both indicated that if they did file suit they would want to win. To do tha t would mean going As High As the Ohio supreme court. Hiring an attorney specializing in zoning Apea is would be extremely costly especially if it meant having a new hearing. Trustees think that the appeals Board would probably win because trustees Case would not be As Strong since there is limited evidence of any irregularity in the hearing. Another reason for not going to court was the Lack of knowledge erf whether the Hamilton county prosecutor would represent the trustees. Trustees agreed with Cou Al Paul Schuch that the prosecutors office probably would opt Tor representing the county zoning appeals Board. Schuch said trustees could enter the Case As a Friend of the court if an individual files suit against the that Board. Expressing disappointment in the decision with the trustees were mrs. John Knoechel and or. John Steiner residents of Kentucky View who look Over the site for the Grain facility.

Steiner said residents erf the Kentucky View area received a a lot of Flack for the evidence the zoning Board. He told trustees of the Independent research that group did and erf the number erf government bodies against the isue. R. Turpin Fischer Anderson Farmer with considerable Farmland who is a proponent of the facility later told trustees a i done to think the Board of zoning appeals is on trial. I hate to think that is the purpose of this he added he hoped trustees recognize they represent the entire Anderson township and not just a part. Trustee Dorsey said a suit against the Board a could be a test where appointed persons can in effect make zone changes. Both he and Taylor expressed sym Timathy for the residents erf Kentucky View drive. Dorsey said he had a a bit of a dilemma because he found it a difficult to be parochial on the Issue which he labelled As on of a township concern is. A regional concern.
