  Trustees Seek Cutbacks To Minimize Impact Of State Funding Reductions  
  May 28, 2020 Edition  
     Preparing for possible reductions in state funding due to the coronavirus pandemic, Boardman Township Trustees have asked their department head to reduce their annual budgets by 10 per cent in an effort to save upwards of $1 million.
      “Boardman Township operates on a tight budget and we want to minimize the impact of cuts in funding,” Trustee Larry Moliterno said.
      Trustee Tom Costello said there will be a hiring freeze, as well as non-replacement of personnel and equipment needs.
      He suggested that due to the pandemic, state gas tax revenues will decrease and that could impact the annual road resurfacing program.
      Another impact of cutbacks in state funding could come from reductions in the capital grant program, and the Ohio Public Works program.
      Working with the late State Rep. Don Manning, the Boardman Township had hoped to receive a $1.25 million capital grant this year. Funds from that grant would go towards the creation of a passive park at Market St. Elementary School, and could include funding to raze the now-vacant school building.
      In other matters, meeting last week, Trustees declared several properties of nuisance sites. They included 321 West Midlothian Blvd., 5902 Market St. and 7693 East Parkside Dr.
      Trustees accepted a low bid of $112,057 from R.T. Vernal for Phase 2 of a drainage mitigation project on West Huntington Dr. Work on the project should be completed by the end of June. Work on Phase 2 includes piping, catch basins, road and curb repair.
      Administrator Jason Loree told Trustees there are five projects in the works for the ABC Water District, including pipe replacement projects on Homestead Dr., Glenridge Dr., Buchanan Dr. and Spring Park Dr., as well as a study of Cranberry Run.
