The Genoa Township Board of Trustees will decide at their Jan. 9 meeting whether to add a fourth leg to a future roundabout.
The Delaware County Engineer’s Office has said there will be a roundabout built on Mt. Royal Avenue, with legs extending to Old 3C Highway, Mount Royal Ave. and State Route 3. The engineer’s office has said the township would need to help fund construction of a fourth leg at Frost Road.
“The county is going to go ahead with it no matter what,” Genoa Chairperson Barbara Lewis said of the roundabout following last week’s trustee meeting. “It’s just that little leg south of the roundabout that goes to the business area that we’re debating and have some control over.”
Lewis said the township is also considering putting in a connector road that would go into the business section of Frost Road from Maxtown Road.
“That’s private property, so we don’t know if those people want to sell now, and we’re trying to determine that and get some things worked out,” she said. “We can’t do them both (the connector and the roundabout leg).”
Lewis said the Jan. 9 trustee meeting will also be an organizational meeting. In addition, the trustees will meet Dec. 19 to discuss the 2014 appropriations and consider a road levy resolution.
The trustees on Dec. 5 promoted Dan Rannebarger to Deputy Police Chief; recognized middle school resource officer Sara Rath as the first township recipient of the Westerville Rotary Club’s “Service Above Self” award; accepted $2,000 in donations from resident Carol Baker to the police and fire departments; authorized repair on 8,323 feet of sidewalks and billing the property owners; approved the sale of salt brine to Liberty Township; and heard a presentation from the Delaware Soil & Water Conservation District and County Deputy Drainage Engineer Brett Bergefurd.
