The Citizens for Good roads, Liberty Township held the first organizational meeting on 3/26/2014 with 25 participants. The group listened as Township Trustees Stan Nudell and Jody Stoyak explained how state and federal budget cuts have decimated funding for road repairs. While Township Administrator Pat Ungaro has been successful in grant writing for road repairs, these grants require matching monies and there are no local funds right now to make the match.

The Township has created a list of roads that need re-surfacing in the next several years. There are 60 miles of roads in the township and some of the most critical include, Tibbett�s Wick, (cost $152,273), Keefer ($177,355), Naylor-Lloyd ($136,670) along with many more roads. In addition to re-surfacing, the township must still budget for salt, hot patch and cold patch.

Currently 16 township residents have signed up to work to get the information to residents about the need for this levy. The levy will be on the May ballot and will cost a homeowner with a $100,000 home about 12 cents a day.

The committee is actively seeking additional residents to help with this project. It was clear the only way the roads in Liberty can get re-surfaced is by additional levy funding. Help is needed to make phone calls, distribute flyers and place signage. Those interested in helping should contact the township at 330-759-1315. Information will be out soon on the next meeting date.
