GIRARD

The city is getting ready to decide which streets will be paved this year.

It should have about $200,000 for paving, Mayor James Melfi said. That’s in addition to a $200,000 grant the city has specifically for streets in Parkwood, he said.

The mayor, street foreman and city-service director ride through the city to decide which roads are most in need of paving each year, he said. He presents that list to city council, which he did at council’s meeting this week.

He said the city’s engineer will get the list and give an estimated cost of paving the streets. The auditor will recommend an annual budget.

The city is going to solicit bids for all the streets on the list, and will pave as many as it can within the budget.

Melfi said the streets that most need to be paved this year are part of Woodlawn Avenue; all of Beaver Street; part of Highland Avenue; Elruth Avenue from Forsythe Avenue to Hazel Street; Stewart Street from Main Street to Prospect Street; Hillside Drive; Ward Avenue from Prospect Street to Church Hill-Hubbard Road; Navajo Trail from Apache Drive to Cheyenne Drive; and parts of Squaw Creek Drive, Moccasin Trail and Liberty Street.

Melfi said the work should start in late summer.
