Medina road millage up for renewal 10.15.08

Written by David Green.

Medina Township voters will be asked to renew a road maintenance and improvement levy in the November general election.

The two-mill levy was first approved in the early 1990s and another four-year renewal would bring in maintenance funds through 2011. The levy brings in about $ 82,000 annually.

“This is not a new millage,” said township clerk Suzette Burk. “The township has two road levies, since the township can no longer fund all the road projects from state revenue sharing money.

“The township would like to continue moving forward with its efforts to improve the roads and bridges,” she added.

The township has nearly 50 miles of road to maintain, Burk said, from an annual budget of $291,000. A standard four-inch application of new gravel costs $27,000 a mile, she said.

BOARD—All of the township board members are running unopposed for another term.

Township residents who live in the Hudson school district will have a separate ballot to use at the election in order to vote on a school millage request.
