Granger resident informs admins about target shooting issues
GRANGER – At the regular Granger Township Board meeting on August 30, a township resident raised concerns about target shooting in her neighborhood. The State Road resident said her neighbors’ target shooting activity was noisy and disruptive, and she inquired about township regulations for such activity. She said she called the Medina County Sheriff’s Office about it, but MPs told her there was nothing they could do about it. The resident also asked if there was a required distance between the properties for this type of filming to take place.
Administrator John Ginley explained that Ohio’s revised code allows target shooting in townships and townships do not have the power to regulate such activity.
Trustee Richard Pace added that while there is nothing the township can do legally, he sympathizes with the grievor’s situation.
