Services plow ahead
Because of a Service Area #6 budget shortfall, the Summit County Council voted on Dec. 19 to use gas tax revenue to pay for two road projects done in 2012 in order to have the funds to continue snowplow and road maintenance services.
The County Council also voted to increase Service Area #6 taxes, but put all future road projects on hold until the increase clears any potential petitions in late 2013. If the increase clears too late in the construction season, however, projects may be put on hold an additional year.
