John Karl, Steve Miller, and Doug Kendle, the township road supervisor and road crew, have spent a busy spring and summer taking care of the township roads. Five miles of roadways received new chip and seal and 1.2 miles were blacktopped. Patching and repairing on other sections of the roads used approximately 400 ton of blacktop. Culverts were replaced at nine locations and five miles of ditching was completed. In between these projects the approximately 48 miles of roadway sides were mowed two times. As we head into fall and winter, the guys will be completing the third round of mowing and readying the equipment for the inevitable rounds of plowing and salting that will be necessary to keep the roadways cleared and safe for travel.
