Earlier this year, Fairlawn officials drove the streets and rated each one based on how badly it needed repaired.
Mayor William Roth and Deputy Service Director Ernie Staten have picked the five worst and have nearly $2 to spend on some tender love and care.
"We feel comfortable and really want to push the envelope this year," Roth said. "We're using inheritance tax and Permissive Tax Funds to pay for these repairs so we won't be assessing the residents."
Roth also wants to spend $100,000 on concrete slab replacements.
"There was one year where we couldn't do any road repair because of the economy," Roth said. "This way we will not incur debt and pay in cash."
Here are the roads (and the repairs) on Roth's list, as well as his comments:
• North Miller Road: The roadway is stressed from the amount of traffic that uses it for the commercial business in the area and it's the principle route to the north side of the city. The pavement from West Market Street to Sand Run Parkway is asphalt and in need of resurfacing. Concrete curb and gutter are deteriorating.
• Brunsdorph Road: The roadway is stressed from residential traffic between Ridgewood Road to the residential area on the south side of the city. The asphalt pavement from the bridge area to Ridgewood Road is deteriorated to the point of a necessary resurfacing with one storm sewer repair.
• Pembroke Road: This road will a total reconstruction from the southern Akron boundary to Burnham Road. The repair will include asphalt roadway, concrete curb and gutter, new storm sewer and new water line.
• Barrington Road: Total reconstruction from Holliston Road to Mackinaw Road. Barrington is deteriorating and has waterline issues. The repair will include new road surface, new water line and new storm sewer.
• Caladonia Avenue: Total reconstruction from Abington Road to Carson Road. Caladonia is badly deteriorated with storm sewer, sanitary sewer and water line issues. Repairs include new surface, new water line, new storm sewer and sanitary sewer repairs.
