HARTVILLE  Following weeks of discussion, Hartville Council passed an ordinance establishing parking restrictions for residential streets in the village.

The ordinance allows parking on streets 20 feet in width or wider and restricts or prohibits parking on streets less than 20 feet wide.

Council also directed Solicitor Ron Starkey to draw up legislation amending a previously passed ordinance regarding the parking of commercial trailers on residential streets in order to coincide with, and avoid redundancy, in the new ordinance.

The earlier ordinance had restricted commercial trailers 30 feet or more in length to parking one hour at a time, for loading purposes.  That ordinance will be amended to reflect any commercial vehicle 20 feet or longer. 

Woodland paving project still under budget

Council approved an appropriation amendment to cover a change order in the completed Woodland Street repaving project.  Councilman James Sullivan said the change order is within the allowed 10 percent overage in the contract and the overall $362,453 project came in under budget.

After partial funding from Stark County and the Ohio Public Works Commission, Sullivan said, the village "got $400,000 worth of paving for $81,000 (the local share of the project)."
