Perkins Township has no cash for road repairs
May 22, 2013 at 10:11 AM
Township trustees voted to spend just $2,200 for road repairs in 2013 — to smooth out Miller Road — but the waiting list of roads needing repair is growing.
The Miller Road project is the first resurfacing project on a Perkins Township road in two years. The last one — at Fairview Lanes — went over-budget by $150,000 in 2011.
