Mayor Forthofer reports that the Maple View Ditch Widening Project is to begin. Lorain County has notified property owners along the Maple View Ditch that tree clearing will begin any time now.
“This is the highly anticipated first step in the County project to clear and widen this storm water channel,” stated the mayor. “Vermilion's Rolling Meadows Drive residents will be notified by the county when fences or sheds need to be moved.”
“The overgrown ditch is in the southern part of the City of Vermilion off West River Road on the border with Brownhelm Township,” said Mayor Forthofer.
