Trumbull County commissioners approved a second 49 percent, 10-year tax exemption for a business in the Belmont Avenue Community Reinvestment Area in Liberty Township.

Whitedonuts LLC of State Street in Salem received the exemption Wednesday for a Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant it will build on Belmont.

Earlier, commissioners approved a similar exemption for an 86-unit Comfort Suites hotel on Belmont Avenue in the location formerly occupied by a Ramada Inn.

In other business, commissioners approved an agreement with the village of McDonald to give the county building-inspection department the authority to seek certification from the state to handle commercial-building inspections for the village.

The building-inspection department will receive the permit fees for any commercial projects it handles in the village, said Mike Sliwinski, the county’s chief building official. The village has only a couple of commercial projects per year.

The commissioners also approved a change order for the Kinsman Phase 2 sanitary-sewer project for an additional $178,699, bringing the total contract with Marucci & Gaffney Excavating of Youngstown to more than $6 million.

One of the changes was an additional $91,500 for more storm-sewer replacements than originally anticipated — from 4,163 feet to 7,163 feet.

Scott Verner, county sanitary engineer, said it can be difficult to know how many feet of storm sewers are in the path of a sanitary sewer because people sometimes install their own, and they don’t show up on any maps used to plan the project.

Other changes were an additional $62,500 because of a change in the amount of premium backfill needed and an additional $24,699 because of several other unanticipated issues, such as a problem with a storm drain, contaminated soils causing a petroleum odor and the removal of additional trees, county officials said.

Corporations get the tax breaks while the working man gets to carry the tax burden.
What a great system. Keeps the rich rich and the ensure the middle class disappears and becomes poor. Liberty is really looking like a world class community lately...
