My thoughts on the Council Meeting 5/15/18
1. I have always known Summit is special because the people give so much of their time and talent to make it a better place. A prime example of that commitment was the energetic and thorough presentation from the Historic Preservation Commission. As we review the DRO (design standards for downtown) and begin the process of redeveloping on Broad St, preserving the character of our wonderful city has never been more important!
2. Council voted to have hearings to spend a bunch of money (more than $5 million) but it's important to know the budget was already passed. These are just the resolutions to actually go ahead and appropriate the funds and there will be public hearings on each item at the next meeting in June.
3. At a Council meeting back in April some residents commented on the state of their street. That's one of the streets set to be resurfaced this year. That's the good news. The bad news is the price of resurfacing roads went up by 16% over last year. That's a direct result of increases in oil prices.
