Water customers will get report


Youngstown Water Department customers will receive copies of a consumer-confidence report with their water bills by July 1.

The report is required by the federal Safe Drinking Water Act Reauthorization of 1996. The information in the report details what is in the water.

The city purchases water from the Mahoning Valley Sanitary District and distributes about 16 million gallons a day through 750 miles of pipelines to residents of Youngstown, Austintown, Boardman, Canfield Township and Liberty and sells it in bulk to Mineral Ridge, Girard, the city of Canfield and North Jackson.

Assault charge


Joseph L. Frabotta, 25, who listed addresses in Cortland and Champion, was arraigned Wednesday in Warren Municipal Court on a felonious-assault charge.

Police said he hit another man in the head with a bottle in a Champion bar June 2.

Police were called to the bar at 11:35 p.m. and found a 24-year-old man bleeding from his head who said he saw five males assaulting a bartender and intervened. He said he didn’t see who hit him with the bottle, but witnesses identified Frabotta.

A not-guilty plea was entered for Frabotta, and he was released from the county jail after posting $15,000 bond.
