Austintown votes on joint road paving project

Posted: Updated:

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - For the first time ever, Austintown, Boardman and Canfield Townships will be putting some road paving projects out to bid together.

On Tuesday, Austintown Trustees voted in favor of the joint effort. There are hopes that combining about $1.2 million of paving projects will result in a lower price and more roads paved for all three townships.

"It will increase the volume vendors are bidding on. All three of us are hoping we'll get a lower unit bid than either of us could individually," says Austintown Administrator Michael Dockry.

Dockry tells us Austintown hopes to pave up to four and a half miles of road for the 440,000 set aside for roads.

Boardman will put out the bid for all three townships. Bids can be placed beginning June 24th.
