Boardman Court to move to Market Street

Mahoning County commissioners unanimously entered into a 10-year lease for new Boardman Court quarters at a cost of $1.5 million over the life of that lease.

The court will move in about four months from Boardman Plaza, where it’s on a month-to-month lease, to a now-vacant, one-story building at 8110 Market St. that formerly housed an eye doctor’s office. It is located in a commercially zoned district.

Because the court will be the only occupant of that building, security and parking will be enhanced, said John A. McNally IV, chairman of the county commissioners.

The new location also will be closer to Beaver Township, which is also served by the court, McNally added.

The lease, which commissioners approved Thursday with Westgate Properties, has a no-cost escape clause should the county’s lower courts be consolidated, McNally said.

The lease will be paid by the county’s general fund and fines and costs imposed by the court. The general fund is the county’s main operating fund.

Cost of renovations to be designed by Olsavsky-Jaminet Architects is included in the lease price, McNally said.

In other business, the commissioners rejected all bids received July 27 for Phase Two of the South Struthers Interceptor sanitary-sewer project, which will extend service to Luteran Lane, James Street, Poland Center Drive and part of U.S. Route 224.

J. Robert Lyden, county sanitary engineer, said the bids were rejected because of flaws in contract language put before the bidders.

Lyden and McNally said they want to re-advertise the $2.4 million job in the next several weeks.

Phase One, which serves Struthers and Kennedy roads and part of Route 224, was completed last month.

The new sewer system will flow to the Struthers wastewater treatment plant on Poland Avenue.

In an earlier Thursday meeting of the county building commission, which oversees Oakhill Renaissance Place renovations, Tracie Kaglic, project coordinator with Olsavsky-Jaminet Architects, said 11 of 13 new boilers for the building’s new zoned heating system have arrived at Oakhill and work has begun on their installation.

That project is being funded by a $2.6 million stimulus grant and $900,000 in county money.
