LOWELLVILLE -- Ralph Conti and Clara Ferraro have been named man and woman of the year for their generosity and dedication to the village of Lowellville.
They are both longtime residents and will be honored during "Lowellville Day" on Sunday.
Village council announced the honors during a regular meeting Wednesday.
Council also passed resolutions to honor a handful of former public servants with service awards.
They are John Olson, former mayor; Ron Guerrieri, former clerk-treasurer; Ron Perry, former chief of police; and Lou Mamula, former councilman.
In other business, Carol Flora, clerk-treasurer, announced that the village's biennial state audit "was perfect. It was received without any citations."
Council approved the hiring of Donald Coppola, a Struthers resident, as a part-time police officer and authorized village administrators to notify the state that four crosswalks will be installed at Youngstown-Lowellville Road and West Wood Street.
The crosswalks will be needed when the new school opens early next year, explained Philip Alfano, village administrator.
Gary Diorio, village engineer, presented low bids for work to complete the park and ball fields that will be built near the new school:
UCricket Construction, Lowellville, for building construction, $54,300; and wiring for a proposed pavilion, $13,000.
The building will house a concession stand, restrooms and storage area.
UCharniga Plumbing, Poland, plumbing, $25,350.
UB & amp;J Electric, North Lima, wiring, $13,347.
The village finance committee is expected to meet to discuss the bids next week.
Alfano said bids could be awarded within 10 days.
