The city of Barberton continues to tweak and improve their city, and a major part of that is fixing the streets. Through federal grants, Barberton has received over $8 million for road improvements.
Bill Judge, the mayor of Barberton, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss the grant. Judge believes this is “huge news” and “desperately needed” to fix the streets. The streets getting the facelift to start are Norton Avenue, and Wooster Road North and West. Judge is hoping for additional funding down the road for infrastructure.
As for the current roads and conditions during the winter, Judge says the salt supply is still doing well, and they have when they need for city services.
