Paris Township trustees hope to spare taxpayers in road repair

If all goes well, Minyoung Road in Paris Township may be in for an upgrade. Trustees agreed Thursday to pursue state Issue 2 funds to repave the road, assigning experienced grant writer Derek Reed (also the township’s fire chief) to spearhead the project. If Paris wins the grant, the paving funds will be available in 2023.

“That way the burden of the taxpayers is lifted somewhat,” Trustee Ed Samec said.

Trustees have targeted Minyoung Road because “it has some issues with it so we don’t want it to get too far out of hand,” he added.
