CANFIELD — City council has several projects planned for 2022, including water pipes, infrastructure and a new gazebo.
Council passed a resolution to request and enter into a loan agreement for the construction of new water mains on Bradford Drive and where it joins Herbert Road.
City Manager Wade Calhoun said the loan would allow the city to complete a major project knowing that the loan could be repaid from the water usage fees the city collects each year.
He advised at last week’s council session: “Feb. 1 is the deadline to apply.
The resolution would allow the city to apply for the Ohio Water Supply Revolving Loan Account with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the Ohio Water Development Authority. Ohio for planning, design and construction. The total loan would be $542,223 for the line replacement project.
Calhoun said Bradford Drive is a hot spot for water main breaks and the line needs to be replaced.
City Council also approved entering into a subdivision agreement with Stonebridge Land Corp. for Stonebridge Plat 10. Developer Charley Masters had the infrastructure in place and before any lots could be sold an agreement and bond had to be in place to cover all repairs to this infrastructure for the first three years.
The Council also gave approval to Canfield Rotary for the replacement of the gazebo on the Village Green. The new one will be larger and accessible to people with reduced mobility, while retaining the vintage look.
