THE ADMINSTRATION BUILDING HAS A FRESH, NEW LOOK

 A gable roof was added to the administration side of the Newton Township Administration Building in 2016.

Dave Wiltrout Roofing, Inc. from Warren, OH was awarded the original contract for approximately $25,000.

The project has proven to be a good investment to date as it has addressed the chronic leakage of the original flat roof 

as well as provided better insulation in the building. New flooring, windows, and a new front access door were installed

in 2017. These improvements were funded by revenue received for tipping fees from LaFarge. The new door and windows

have added additional insulation and energy efficiency. Security lighting was also replaced around the property in 2017 with 

energy efficient LED lighting, and surveillance cameras have been installed to monitor the property.
