Board of Trustees' Message

Plain Township Seeking a 1.5 Mill Additional Road Levy

On November 4, 2014, Plain Township will be seeking a 1.5 mill additional road levy. The Plain Township Road Department maintains 174 miles of township roadway.

Unfortunately, due to the skyrocketing cost of asphalt, the Township has had to cut its paving program from paving 14 miles of roads in 2005, to only 8 miles in 2014. Just 10 years ago, the Township spent $757,000 to pave those 14 miles, including curb and gutter work, while this year the cost to pave just 8 miles was $720,000.

Our Road Department has not been able to install or repair curbs and gutters recently due to the increasingly high cost of concrete over the past several years. As a result, Plain Township is rapidly falling behind in its paving program. [More Information]
