Pair of resolutions fail before council - much to the surprise of Norwalk's public works director.

Norwalk city council turned down a pair of public-works related resolutions at a recent meeting.

First, council defeated, by a 7-0 margin, a resolution that would have authorized the application for transportation enhancement funds. These funds would have gone toward the construction of a 10-foot sidewalk on the west side of Milan Avenue.

 

Second, a resolution which would have authorized the application for funds to the Ohio Department of Transportation for the non-infrastructure portion of the Safe Routes to School program died for the lack of a second motion. These funds would have paid for new crossing guards vests, hand signs and a health assessment.

"I'm somewhat surprised," Public Works Director Josh Snyder said after the meeting. "These are the first two grants turned down by council in the six years I've been in Norwalk."
