Council to discuss alley closing, income tax ordinance

Published 10:03am Wednesday, September 26, 2012

At its Thursday meeting, Ironton City Council is expected to discuss an ordinance to close a portion of Pond Alley.

That section of alley is between Pleasant and Vine streets and between Seventh Street and Walnut Alley. According to the proposed ordinance, property owners who live along the alley have requested the move.

Also on the Thursday agenda, is a proposed ordinance that seeks to clarify who must pay the city’s income tax and a resolution regarding the Nixon Hill landslide. If approved, E.L. Robinson Engineering would design a retaining wall that will prevent the hillside around the city’s underground reservoir from sliding.

Heavy rains last year sent the hillside near the tank to move onto the reservoir and pollute the city’s water supply.

The Thursday meeting is at 6 p.m. in council chambers on the third floor of the Ironton City Center.
