RIDGEWAY — A paving project through the village of Ridgeway left the town with improved alleys and parking area at the town’s baseball fields.
The Ohio Department of Transportation gave Ridgeway the grindings it created when it resurfaced Ohio 292 through the village, said Mayor Kevin Howland. In addition to a new covering for Main Street, the grindings were spread over three alleys and were hauled to the baseball field’s parking lot. In all, said the mayor, 300 tons of asphalt were used by the village at no charge.
Village officials were joined by community volunteers to complete the work, said Howland.
Later in the meeting, Solicitor Jason Miller reported negotiations with Mount Victory over a sewer treatment bill continue. He has met with the neighboring village’s solicitor and is convinced a mutually-acceptable agreement will be reached.
In other business, council:
- Agreed to notify the owners of properties at the corners of Hardin and South streets and Hale and Liberty streets of nuisances on the sites.
- Agreed to purchase signs for Main Street announcing the village is home of the national champion Ridgemont FFA.
- Agreed to allow the local Girl Scout Troop to plant flowers in the town planters.
- Announced the town cleanup will be June 16 from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. at the school parking lot.
- Discussed structural problems at the former fire department building, which is used by the village to store its trucks and equipment.
