Foust Construction, Co. is one of the most reputable contractors in the area. Sounds like a council member has an ax to grind. Not sure ODOT funding is readily transferable to other infrastructure projects that need attention. Council needs to look at the funding and see what could potentially be lost by not awarding the project.

What's next? Daily use fees at Boardman Park. Will the dog park be open during Oktoberfest? I'd like to see the receipts of the money the Park receives from Rotary to use the entire park for the whole weekend.

READ!!! Don't skim "Once the project is finished, a $100 annual membership for nonresidents and $50 for residents will be charged, Loree said. They will each receive a swipe card to operate the gate. That money will go back to Boardman Park to maintain the dog park, he added."

Cellular phones pose about as much risk to cause a fire at a gas station as a person wearing corduroy pants.

Good Luck on this next fight and the road to recovery. Four fights in a year shows a renewed focus on life and your career. Hope you return to the valley soon and continue the worthy philanthropic endeavors you did while holding the belts.

NIMBY's exert control over City Council. Closing the park will destroy the community activism that saw the vision become reality. No one will want to raise money for a civic project if the city can just shut it down. Not to mention penalizing the kids that abide with the rules due to the actions of a few. Policing the park will reveal that 99% of the problems are caused by the non-skaters that congregate at the Park.

Demolition of houses "go out to bid" This means that companies submit sealed bids to perform the work. All submitted bids are opened at the same time. Typically, the lowest bidder gets the job. Trustees have no control on awarding to a local company if they are not the low bidder.

Round-a-bouts are the type of out of the box thinking the County Engineer needs to address traffic congestion. SR 11, Mill Creek and I-680 are created and natural obstacles to east west traffic on the 224 corridor. People using Mathews road will notice improved traffic flow. I hope the engineer examines using one at the west end of this street. And then Southern Boulevard could be returned to an actual boulevard a la Fairmont Blvd in Beachwood, Shaker and Celveland Heights.

Stay on point??? The article publicizes a PUBLIC meeting were the uninformed can solicit information and offer comments. Those with questions should polish their social skills and venture out for an evening of interaction with humans. There will be a plethora of educated representatives that qualm the fears. You can learn that the new roadway will be placed in the existing right-of-way with no property acquisition. Also, you may learn that minimum lanes widths are actually 12 feet. Tip of the cap to Top.
