Paul and the Township Board have been successful in accomplishing: continued road improvements, timely snow removal (especially in the sub-divisions), reducing costs at Township Hall, improving services to residents and streamlining procedures to attract businesses to locate in Bedford Township.
Paul Pirrone has enjoyed serving the residents of Bedford Township as Supervisor the last three years and looks forward to serving in the future. He has listened to the concerns of the residents and has delivered on those priorities. At the top of the list of residents’ priorities that
Under Mr. Pirrone's leadership during his first term, Bedford Township has obtained major grants. Examples are the $597,000 to create a round-about at the very congested intersection of Jackman & Smith Roads. $258,380 has also been obtained to invest in making major improvements to the downtown Temperance area which, when completed, should be another “Jewel” of Bedford Township. In addition, Paul is especially proud of his partnership with the Monroe County Road Commission and the work accomplished with paving roads and drainage issues.
Paul feels he has been a “hands on” Supervisor” attending many events and taking every opportunity to engage with the residents of Bedford Township. He, along with his Deputy Supervisor, Al Prieur, take pride in their open door policy that many residents have taken advantage of to express their concerns and make suggestions. Government transparency has been of upmost importance to him and his Administration. All meetings are open to the public and are recorded and broadcast live on Buckeye Cable and Facebook Live. He has held “Town Hall Meetings” on a variety of topics which have given residents a chance to hear from experts and also ask questions and make suggestions.
Mr. Pirrone has established a good working relationship with Federal, State, County and other local officials, taking every opportunity to listen to their advice and decide if various successes for them would assist the residents of Bedford Township. Paul also works very closely with the administration and Bedford Public School Board. He recently led the effort to add an additional Police Resource Officer to the school system paid for by Bedford Township.
