Council meeting wrap-up

I’m out of practice. This is all after-the-fact.

A bunch of blind people showed  up to complain about unsafe conditions around the blind school on Walnut Avenue.

Linda Randolph got well deserved kudos for leading the successful fight to keep open the Niles Post Office.

It was a four-member council, no Wieckowski.

The council approved a a 14-kid day care operation that will set up shot in a home accessed via a private road in Centerville. There’s a lot to this. The day care center is going to be off Allen Court, wich is basically a one lane private road near the intersection of Thornton and Fremont Boulevard.

All of the residents say day care traffic will pose a danger on the narrow road. The day care folks say they drive carefully and it won’t be a big deal. The city had rejected previous plans for 30 students, but state law tied the city’s hands when it comes to a 14-student program in what will soon become the operator’s residence.

If the council had more latitude, they might have rejected it.
