You don't have to go far in Toledo to find a street in
need of repair, and city leaders want to hear from you about where future
resurfacing money needs to be targeted.
Sharon Riley has been living along Bennett Road for the
past 48 years, and says she's frustrated with the conditions of the road in
front of her home.
"We just got patchwork a week ago, but it's bad," she
This year the city will spend nearly $6 million on
repairs to major streets where state and federal funding has also been secured,
with an additional $2.2 million being set aside for the general resurfacing
program. Sharon says this should be a high priority for city leaders.
"I go down a new street and say, ‘Geez this is really
bad,' when you start flying around," she said. "We need a lot of repairs."
Next month city council will host a series of
neighborhood meetings to discuss street resurfacing needs. Toledoans can have
their say now by calling their district council member at 419-245-1050, or
people can call the ‘Call City Hall' hotline for complaints, at 419-936-2020.
