Shaler Township commissioners Tuesday night unanimously approved the 2013 road paving plan.
The $1.3 million project is the largest paving program in Shaler history, according to Tim Rogers, township manager. Accomplishment of the much needed work required another unanimous approval by the commissioners of a transfer of $300,000 from the township's reserve budget to the road paving budget.
Bid opening for the road paving work will take place on April 9, according to township engineer Kevin Creagh, in time for the commissioners to make its choice at the 7 p.m. meeting that evening.
The commissioners may also select a contractor to replace the roof on the public works building that evening. Bids will be open March 21 for that project, expected to cost between $70,000 and $80,000. The public works building's flat roof leaks and will be replaced with a pitched roof consisting of wooden trusses, plywood and asphalt shingles.
