Enon plans street work


Enon will repair and resurface some streets this year, and council informally directed the village administrator to start with Cardinal Drive.

Most of the $55,000 to $65,000 budget will go to the nearly 3,400-foot, $50,000 Cardinal Drive project, and any leftover funds could be used on Skylark Avenue, Dove Court, Coronado Trail and North Green Street, Village Administrator Chris Lohr said.

The combined cost for the projects is more than $116,000 for approximately 1.2 miles of roadway, according to cost quotes from the Clark County Engineer’s Office, provided to the Springfield News-Sun by the village.

“If we can come up with the dollars, ideally we would do Cardinal, Skylark and Coronado,” Councilman Rick Hanna, chair of the streets and sidewalks committee, said at last week’s council meeting.

He stressed to residents that village streets considered to be in the worst shape are some communities’ best streets.

“People who live in Enon have excellent streets,” Mayor Tim Howard said. “We are very fortunate in this community that you won’t see potholes, there are very few of them and you don’t see streets that have crumbled to a poor condition.”

Those streets that don’t see work this year will likely receive attention in next years budget, Lohr said. Funding for street projects come from auto licensing fees fand funds from an administrative levy, he said.

“Waiting one year on some of these streets is not that big of a deal,” Howard said.
