Public meeting on Aug. 25 for
Mudbrook Stream Restoration Project
The city of Stow was awarded a Section 319(h) Nonpoint Source Grant from the Ohio EPA for a stream restoration project on a Mud Brook Tributary. The scope of work will include 2,400 linear feet of stream bed and flood plain improvement in the 10.2 acre undeveloped parcel adjacent to The Meadows Subdivision Phases One and Two and the Silver Lake Country Club. The project utilizes low impact green infrastructure methods to meet the EPA standards for water quality.
The city of Stow would like to invite all those interested to the second public meeting on Aug. 25 at 5:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at Stow City Hall. Information regarding final improvement plans and construction updates will be presented by the city of Stow and the project's Design/Build team including EnviroScience, GPD Group and RiverReach Construction. Time will be allotted for a question and answer session.
Unused meds can be dropped off at police station
The Munroe Falls Police Department has added a D.U.M.P (Dispose of Unused Medications Properly) Box inside the Police Station Lobby at 43 Munroe Falls Ave. for the use by citizens. With the current drug epidemic in Summit County, and prescription medication being a serious problem especially with youth, the department would like to provide a safe and easy way for residents to dispose of unused medications. Here are the guidelines for using the box:
/ Keep the medicines in their original containers.
/ Mark out the name and address.
/ Make sure all lids are closed tightly.
/ Secure the medications inside a sealable plastic bag.
/ This box is for pills, capsules, or liquid medicines -- syringes cannot be accepted.
