The Pleasant Township trustees held a public meeting to discuss a potential grant for street improvements in the Timberlake subdivision during a board meeting in July.
Road Superintendent Robert Bausch said the grant would cover improvements like street repaving and new curbs. It would cost an estimated $926,000.
Bausch said he is not sure if the township would receive the full amount or a smaller amount, in which case the project would be broken up into phases over multiple years.
The deadline to apply for the grant funding is in August.
Several Timberlake residents shared concerns with the road conditions, reporting that the streets are dangerous and falling apart.
Bausch told the residents to fill out comment cards with their concerns that he would submit along with the grant application.
“It’s high time we try to get this taken care of, but we cannot do it without grant funding. We do not have the budget for it,” Bausch said.
