Timberlake residents hope trustees can help with road conditions

Concerns about Pleasant Township road conditions were brought up at a recent board of trustees meeting.

Mark Mader, resident of the Timberlake subdivision, attended the July 26 meeting on behalf of several residents in the area who are concerned about road conditions.

“It’s dangerous to bicycle or run on these roads. It’s getting really bad,” said Mader.

According to Road Superintendent Robert Bausch, the problem with the roads in Timberlake are the transverse cracks.

“There isn’t really a good fix,” said Bausch. “Anything that goes on it right now is a band aid.”

Bausch said several years ago a product was found to address these type of issues but it was never discussed again.

“I have to see if that product is still available with the county and what the cost is to fill it in,” he said.

Brian Gillem also attended the meeting as a representative from the Timberlake Home Owners Association. He said that they are going to have the residents in Timberlake come to them first with their complaints so that the Home Owners Association can compile them into one request to present to the trustees.

Bausch said that at the current prices, it would cost approximately $2 million dollars to repave the whole Timberlake subdivision, so if anything is to happen, it would have to be done in stages.

“I appreciate anything anyone can do,” said Mader.

In other news, the Pleasant Township Fire Department is looking to replace its thermal imaging camera. The camera is approximately 7 years old and was won in a raffle.

“It’s reaching it’s life expectancy,” said Fire Chief David Whiting.

As the camera is broken again, Whiting obtained approval from the trustees to get several quotes on what the cost of replacing the camera would be.
