AUSTINTOWN

Trustees approved their section of a joint paving program with two other townships, as well as having a second public hearing on changes to ordinances related to massage parlors.

Austintown trustees Monday unanimously approved their section of their joint paving program with Canfield and Boardman townships. The communities are hiring Shelley & Sands for the work. Austintown will pay $144 per cubic yard for about 5,750 cubic yards, or about $828,000.

Mike Dockry, township administrator and road superintendent, said that’s about 9.5 miles.

On top of the asphalt costs, there will be an additional charge of $10,000 a day for grinding on the new roads.

Dockry explained that’s when crews grind out the old pavement along the edges of the road and replace those with new pavement. He said the township is “expecting that to be at least 15 days” worth of work, or $150,000.
