Streetsboro -- The city plans to repave 12 streets in 2013, according to Mayor Glenn Broska.
That is in addition to nine roads that were paved by the city in 2012.
"Twenty-one roads paved in two years is pretty darned good," Broska said.
City Council tentatively agreed Feb. 25 not to exceed $1 million as a total cost. Money would come from the city's general fund.
Council President Tim Claypoole said he is OK with budgeting $1 million for the project.
Council is scheduled to vote March 11 on the funding. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 9184 Route 43.
Projects scheduled to be repaved in 2013 include 12 streets -- Root, Montclair, Walker and Windy Hill drives, Olga and Gates avenues,Valley Brook, Twin Hill, Walters, Stoneman and Pleasant Valley roads, and N. Delemonte Boulevard -- plus the police department parking lot at 2080 Route 303.
Broska said the city determines which roads to pave after they are inspected by the city's engineering director, Bruce Terrell.
"We determine which roads are in the most need of repair," Broska said. "We sit down and discuss which ones we really need to hit and which ones can last another year. For some of the roads, it has been in excess of 20 years [since they were paved.]"
Broska said Olga Avenue, Walters Road and N. Delemonte Boulevard are among the roads in the worst condition.
Broska said asphalt will be used on the project, which will be contracted out.
He said a year ago, most of the road paving project was completed by July, adding, "That would be a reasonable goal for this year."
Roads repaved in 2012 include Hazelton, E. Hale, Harper, Greenhaven, Briar and Summers roads, Frost Road from Route 43 to Page Road, Tower Drive and Route 303 west.
Broska said the city is expecting the bid to come in under the amount that will be budgeted.
If the total cost is over the amount the city agrees to spend, Terrell said some streets may be removed from the list by the city administration.
Terrell said that list has not yet been established.
"We cannot determine if the streets are to be removed from the list without knowing the bid and how we stand with the budget as the streets are completed," Terrell said.
