The residents brought up the following concerns:

• Public safety and emergency vehicles getting to residents in a reasonable time.

• Why the road way was not ditched first, and why crusher run stone was not used?

• Difficultly driving due to the #304 stone.

• The residents feel the road has been neglected for the past 10 years.

Deputy Engineer Lee Pertuset addressed the group and explained the project and the following timeline:

• Mr. Pertuset explained that the State of Ohio allowed money for the project which is required to be used within a certain timeline. The funding was to be used to repair the roadway as a result of the ODOT State Route 247 project.

• The County was going to just repair the soft spots in the road but then decided to repair the entire road.

• Mr. Pertuset explained the scope of work to group, 304 stone will be the base layer. The next layer would be (possibly #67), and then chip and seal within 60 days.
