  Trustees Hire Firm To Study Roadways  
  January 13, 2022 Edition  
     Meeting on Monday night, Boardman Trustees hired a private company to conduct a survey of township roads.
      Tetra Tech, of Cincinnati, Oh., was hired at a cost not to exceed $15,400 to provide engineering services for pavement evaluation for township roads.
      “With this new rating system, we will be able to determine which roads are the worst,” newly-tabbed Chairman of the Boardman of Trustees, Larry Moliterno said.
      Trustee Brad Calhoun noted the road survey should be completed sometime in May.
      One person attended the meeting, Tom Guerrieri, who complained Ivy Hill Dr. had not been resurfaced in a quarter century.
      Guerrieri said residents of Ivy Hill Dr., including himself, pay upwards of $10,000 a year in property taxes and “have third world roads.”
      “We have to take care of all the roads in Boardman, not just places where residents pay high taxes,” Moliterno responded, adding that Guerrieri provided Trustees “a lot of good information, and we will do the study and go from there.”
      Township Road Superintendent, Marilyn Kenner, noted there are some 140-plus miles of roadway in Boardman and once the survey is completed, “all roads will have a permanent rating. The survey will determine which roads are worst.”
      Kenner also told Trustees the roof at the township Road Department building needs replaced and the cost could approach $715,000.
      In another matter, Trustees approved a payment of $75,000 to the Mahoning County Prosecutor’s Office to serve as the township’s law director for 2022.
