I've noticed over the years, these local communities pay less and less attention to their roads during winter. It used to be just ytown that did nothing now it's commonplace. But actually where I live the county is responsible for the roads and it's funny they now do a.good job. But Boardman,Struthers Austintown and the others seem to be following ytowns lead and not being proactive but waiting until it's all over.

In Austintown,there are township roads. Then county roads. And state roads. One doesn't touch the other for fear of ticking off the other unions. Yep,blame it on good old Mahoning Valley mentality.
As a rule,freeways and turnpikes get top priority. We little guys get the leftovers.
Besides,if you have lived here all your life,you ought to know what snow and ice looks like,what to expect,and how to drive on it. If not stay home.
