Maintaining Roads

Many questions have been raised about the way our Township roads are maintained. The process over the years is as follows:

  1. Newly paved road.
  2. Crack & seal. (cracks only sealed with tar & stone)
  3. Seal coat - Tar & stone on complete road. This process could be done twice depending on the condition of the road.
  4. Repave or cap.
  5. Crack & seal second time.
  6. Seal coat second time.
  7. Remove existing (mill out) and repave.

The above process allows our roads to be maintained in a safe condition for automobiles at the lowest cost to our residents. We have spent $86,000 per year on average for the past five. To avoid any seal coating with tar & stone and yet maintain our roads in a safe manner, we would need to increase our operating taxes by at least 2 mills per year. We as a board feel our current method is the most effective. But, we are interested in your thoughts & comments.
