Ordinances on Ironton City Council agenda

Three ordinances are set to be given first readings at tonight’s Ironton City Council meeting, the last meeting for the month of May.

Ordinance 16-27, providing for the issuance of not to exceed $1,120,000 of bonds by the city of Ironton for making storm water system improvements, authorizing sale of the bonds and declaring an emergency; Ordinance 16-28, authorizing the mayor to award contracts for the disposal of municipal solid waste and declaring an emergency; and Ordinance 16-29, authorizing and directing the mayor to execute an agreement with Tribute Contracting and Consultants, LLC for construction of the Ironton storm/sanitary sewers separation project phase III and declaring an emergency, are all on the ballot.

Also on the agenda is one resolution, Resolution 16-25, requesting the governor of the state to reconsider the decision of the Ohio Department of Transportation to tear down the existing Ironton-Russell Bridge and declaring an emergency.

At the last meeting, Ironton resident Elle Dew talked to council about gaining their support to save the bridge. Councilman Kevin Waldo said he would sponsor this resolution to try to get the decision reversed.

Ironton City Council meets at 6 p.m. in the council chambers of the Ironton City Center.
