GREEN: An educational wetlands project to enhance educational opportunities, while helping control stormwater runoff, will be constructed this summer in front of the middle school on Steese Road.
City Council gave approval last week to a $268,676 contract for Tucson Inc. of New Philadelphia to do the work during the school district’s summer recess.
Council also approved the sale of a small section (0.19 acres) of property at 4810 Massillon Road to Scott Plummer for $5,700.
Plummer owns property abutting the newly purchased city-owned land, which remained after the Greensburg Road/Massillon Road intersection project was completed.
Ward 1 Councilman Jim Colopy asked city planners to gather more information from Joseph Cervana of Grille 39 on Massillon Road concerning his plans if granted a state D-5 liquor permit.
Mayor Dick Norton informed the council that construction is expected to begin in July on the Acre Fresh Market project in the Heritage Crossings development off Massillon and Graybill roads.
