Council postpones action on street issues

Income tax collection, Camp Myeerah acquisition discussed

Two street issues were discussed at Bellefontaine City Council’s Tuesday meeting but no action was taken on either.

In the first, a proposed road into the Link Construction’s new industrial park along north County Road 32 came up for a public hearing.

In order to obtain a $250,000 grant for the new road, which would serve the IEG/M3 plastic injection mold making business, Link must dedicate the road to the city, which would then maintain it, City Engineer Tim Notestine said.

The issue could come up for a vote at the April 8 meeting after Link signs necessary documents and an ordinance is drafted, City Law Director Howard Traul said.

The other street issue was the Henry Street extension — an imminent domain issue that has been tabled after two successful readings. Mr. Traul said the city continues to negotiate with property owner Robinson Investments and he hopes a compromise can be presented at the April 8 meeting.

The extension would allow Henry Street to serve as an emergency vehicle and truck access to the AcuSport Corporation, which is expanding its operation.
