Voters to decide the future of Perrysburg Township roads

PERRYSBURG, OH (WTOL) - Perrysburg Township says their roads need to be fixed.

Trustees unanimously approved the proposed $1.5 million levy to improve road conditions throughout the township. That's an estimated $15 per year for those who live in a home valued at $100,000.

Officials said there is an expressed interest among residents for better paved roads.

"We're trying to keep it as minimal as we can yet get some improvements," said Trustee Joe Schaller.

Earlier this year the township had to dip into its general funds to resurface the roads. Many of the roads have patches and are not wide enough. If the levy passes, the money address these problems.

"We're hoping it passes, we've never asked before but as our general funds are getting depleted and for one reason or another, we want to just keep up with things," said Schaller.

The proposed five-year levy that will fix roads in Perrysburg Township will be on the ballot in November.
