Our local Portage Lakes Eagles has made another great contribution to their hometown:

$500 was donated to the Fire Dept. for Fire Prevention Materials;

$1500 was donated to the Police Dept. to send 15 local kids to Shop with a Cop.

 

The Mayor announced that the “Shop with a Cop” Raffle is happening now.  The tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. This is a great fund raiser for our children or their families that are in need at this time of year.

 

The Mayor received information from Dave Whited from Metroparks Serving Summit County that they are taking bids on December 7, 2010 for the last section of the Towpath Trail in Summit County. The section stretches from Snyder Road south to PPG’s Lime Lake #3 in Barberton. The estimated cost is about $2 million and if all goes well, it should be completed by the end of next year (2011). It is only about one-half mile long but there is an underpass of the ABC Railroad, a 450' long bridge over the Tuscarawas River at the confluence with Wolf Creek, a bridge over the canal and the crossing of Snyder Avenue.

 

The Mayor read a letter from Alan Brubaker, Summit County Engineer regarding the Vanderhoof road bridge. Low limit postings are up, they will be trying to repair it in the spring.

 

The Tudor House Holiday Open House is scheduled for December 5th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Local choirs, cookies, wassail, punch, Santa & his helpers. All FREE.
