LOWELLVILLE, Ohio (WKBN) – A couple months after heavy rains washed out a pair of streets in the village of Lowellville, some much needed financial help is on the way.
Mayor Jim Iudiciani told Mahoning County Commissioners Thursday morning that almost $670,000 will be coming to the village from the Ohio Public Works Commission’s Emergency Fund to help pay for reconstruction of both Walnut Street and McGill Street.
The roads were destroyed when parts of the village were flooded in a June 23 storm. The mayor said the next step will be to look for additional grant funding and low interest loans to cover the rest.
“It is in the design stage now. It is going to bid mid-September. Construction should be October and finished by Nov. 30 is what our goal is for both of those areas,” Iudiciani said.
The mayor thanked Commissioners for their help landing the state money, saying without the outside help, the village never would have been able to afford the repairs.
