LAKE TWP.  During the regular meeting on May 22, the Lake Township Trustees awarded the 2017 paving program to Central Allied for $1.047 million.

Central Allied was the lowest of three bids for the 16 miles of road paving.

“This is the most road the township has paved in one year by at least two miles,” said Trustee John Arnold. “The cost of pavement is down this year so we decided to pave more road than in past years.”
