Liberty takes bids

Land where an abandoned, eyesore apartment complex once stood will be rehabilitated to attract development, said Liberty Township Administrator Pat Ungaro.

The township fire department took down the last of four buildings at the former Liberty Square Apartments on Naylor-Lloyd Road in a practice burn Dec. 10.

The apartment complex was abandoned in 2006 by several owners who did not want to take responsibility for cleaning it up, Ungaro said.

The township used nearly $85,000 from a Moving Ohio Forward grant to get rid of the building.

The bulk of that money was for asbestos removal, Ungaro said.

Ungaro said the township solicited bids for filling in the four building foundations and re-seeding the property with grass.

It received five bids and has an apparent low bidder, but Ungaro would not say who it is because the bids are not final.

Ungaro said the property belongs to the county’s land bank, and the county will fund the rehabilitation.

The administrator said the township and Trumbull County officials do not want the property to be sold at a sheriff’s auction.

“We don’t want someone to buy it and speculate,” he said. “The county and township want the best project.”

This property isn't even visible from Belmont Ave. Much ado about nothing. We just keep throwing money at projects that don't improve our commerce in the township. The former car wash at 20 Goldie Road didn't even get a bid at auction last Thursday. And it is a visible eyesore in need of immediate removal. It has been an eyesore for over 20 years. Let's spend the county's money wisely and quit wasting it on these out-of-the way properties. Plant grass and who is going to mow it? Just let it be.
