Weekend damage in Vermilion was likely caused by a cold air funnel, not a tornado…That’s the word from the Cleveland Office of the National Weather Service.
The funnel hit the City Service Center on Devin Drive shortly after 5pm Saturday. No one was injured, but the roof sustained some damage.
After weeks of discussion, legislation dealing with a new fire station is on tomorrow night’s Norwalk City Council agenda.
City Council is scheduled to hear the first reading of an ordinance that would ask voters for permission to use $3.5 million in trust fund money to build a new fire station. The trust fund money comes from the early 1970’s sale of Norwalk’s old light plant. Since it’s just the first reading, a vote on the measure is not expected tomorrow night, but one is expected later this month, or in early October. If approved, the issue would likely appear on the March, 2016 primary ballot.
Union employees at KBI in Sandusky are voting on the company’s final contract offer.
If approved, the deal would drastically cut workers’ pay and benefits. If rejected, employee layoffs will begin next month, and the plant will likely close for good within six to 12 months.
