Norton Council hears first, second readings on legislation
The first regular Norton City Council meeting of the year Jan. 13 didn’t involve much action.
Council members listened to the first readings of two new pieces of legislation and second readings of prior legislation. No action was taken on any of the items.
Introduced during the meeting was an ordinance that would accept the report of the Assessment Equalization Board for the improvement of Croydon, Rangely and Easton roads; Higgins, Brookside and Clubview drives; and Brookside Court and certain other parcels by constructing and installing sanitary sewer lines, together with necessary appurtenances to comprise the Nash Heights Sanitary Sewer Improvements — East Phase Project.
Council President Rick Rodgers (Ward 1) said if this ordinance is passed, it in no way indicates that a construction project will begin. Before that can happen, he said, some properties in the area must be reassessed, then another resolution must be passed allowing the city to begin accepting bids for the project.
Council also heard first reading of an ordinance that would repeal the city’s Health Advisory Board.
Legislation receiving second readings included:
- a resolution that was introduced at the end of last year that would adopt the solid waste management plan for ReWorks, a recycling program offered to communities in Summit County; and
- an ordinance, which also was introduced at the end of last year, that would authorize the mayor to execute and deliver an agreement with Summit County Public Health for certain storm water management services.
Also during the meeting, Mayor Mike Zita reported all the city’s salt trucks are now fully repaired and functioning and road crews have been hard at work repairing potholes created by the freezing temperatures last week.
He also said the annual Norton Kiwanis Chili Cook-Off will be held Feb. 15 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Shirley L. McGuire Community Center, 4060 Columbia Woods Drive.
Norton City Council next will meet for a work session Jan. 21 and for its regular meeting Jan. 27, both at 7 p.m., in Council Chambers at the Safety-Administration Building, located at 4060 Columbia Woods Drive.
