When members of the road commission show up in the spring for the Saline Township Board Meeting it is often well attended and lively and this week’s meeting was no exception. Local citizens expressed disappointment, frustration and sometimes anger about slow or non-existent road repairs, especially for roads near their homes.
In August, a report to council identified $4.8 million in road projects over the next five years. The city identified about $1 million in funding, leaving $3.8 million in unfunded projects. If the county levied the tax for five years, that would reduce the unfunded total to $2.8 million.
