Robinson contract on Ironton council agenda


Some familiar topics will be revisited when Ironton City Council meets Thursday.

On the agenda is first reading of an ordinance that would extend a contract to E.L. Robinson Engineering for the construction, administration and inspection of the North Ironton Sewer Separation Project. Council is poised to give third reading to an ordinance that would allow E.L. Robinson to design the second phase of the project for the area between North Fifth and Elm streets.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has mandated the city will separate its storm and sanitary sewers; the north Ironton area is the first of that multi-phase project, followed by the North Fifth and Elm area, the south side, the middle part of the city and lastly, the immediate downtown area.

An ordinance to rezone a parcel of land on Liberty Avenue adjacent to The University Mart is scheduled for third reading.

Also on the agenda: a resolution to apply for an Ohio Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Boating Facility Grant and a resolution that would allow Vice Mayor Mike Lutz to be named as signatory on all accounts at all financial institutions for the city.

The regular council meeting is at 6 p.m. At 5 p.m. the city council commercial development committee will meet. The city council finance committee will meet between the first committee meeting and the full council session.
