Judge approves water supply district for Mahoning County suburbs

YOUNGSTOWN — A judge has approved the creation of a regional water supply and storm water management district for Austintown, Boardman and Canfield townships.

Judge James C. Evans of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court approved creation of the district at a hearing today.

The judge ruled after he asked twice whether anyone in the audience objected to creation of the district, and nobody objected.

“This proposed district is necessary, and it, and the plan for the operation of the district, is conducive to the public health, safety, convenience and welfare,” Judge Evans said.

Iris Torres Guglucello, Youngstown city law director, and Dan Pribich, deputy city law director, sat silently in the back row of the courtroom; and Guglucello declined to comment after the hearing.
