LAKE TWP. During the regular meeting on Oct. 12, the Lake Township Board of Trustees approved exchanging the day after Thanksgiving as a paid holiday instead of Columbus Day.

The measure will be for non-bargaining, full-time Road Department employees.

“The employees worked today and will take the Friday after Thanksgiving off now as their paid holiday and that will apply going forward," said Trustee President Steve Miller.

In other actions, trustees:

• Authorized paying bills as of Oct. 12 in the amount of $879,278.

• Approved the purchase of video conferencing equipment for the Uniontown Police Department from Norlson at a cost of $4,112.
