On Tuesday, Sept. 18, members of the Grove City Council approved a $820,000 city road project.

“We are in the fourth year of the plan,” said City Manager Bill Keefer, during the Sept. 18 meeting.

The council learned there are 215 roads within the city’s limits and discussed the road project for almost 20 minutes before approving the measure unanimously. 

The $820,000 project included structural work on south Broadway Street to west 13th Street to west 4th Street for an estimated cost of $220,000 and patching and sealing Lookout Lane on Bay Crest Ave for an estimated cost of $5,000. 

Other projects include reconstruction on Bay Crest Ave, Dogwood Drive and south Broadway Street at an estimated cost of $505,000 and surface treatment on Leisure Lane to Main Street at an estimated cost of $90,000.

In other business, three positions were filled with the appointment of former mayor and councilman Marty Follis to the Grove Municipal Service Authority and John Wells and Jim Corbridge were reappointed as trustees to the Convention and Tourism Board.

Follis is filling the expired term of Bill Dyer and Wells was reappointed to the motel/hotel position and Corbridge to the tourism position, said Mayor Ed Trumbull. 

Before the council members voted on the Medical Marijuana Dispensaries and Medical Marijuana Growing Facility ordinance, assistant Debbie Bottoroff announced the agenda item would be tabled on the advice of the city’s attorney.

On Thursday, Bottoroff said there was an issue of the language and rewording of the ordinance language was needed for clarification. 

Other ordinances approved were to uniform and clarify language regarding off-street parking, surfacing, striping and swimming pools.

The council approved a bid from Deep South for $146,500 for a Brush Fire Truck for the Fire Department.

Also approved was an American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers license agreement and a site agreement with FLW, LLC for a Costa Series Fishing Tournament to be held at Wolf Creek Park on June 13 to 15.

The next meeting is 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2 at the Grove Community Center, Room 5.
