Summit County considers creating group to address stormwater issues
The Summit County Council is considering the creation of a countywide group to address stormwater issues in communities across the county.
The council’s committee of the whole this week approved giving a second reading at its meeting Monday to a recommendation from the nine-member Charter Review Commission. The resolution, if passed, would put the issue on the November ballot for voters to decide if they want to amend the county charter to create the Storm Water Management Commission.
The council, which is on recess for all of July, will discuss it and vote on it at future meetings. Members have to make a decision by Aug. 7, the filing deadline for November ballot issues.
