  Original Published: 5/29/2013Galion City Council approved several pieces of legislation Tuesday night including an agreement with the Ohio Department of Transportation for a resurfacing project on Ohio 97. Council president Gail Baldinger said the project will start on the east side of Galion continuing into the Morrow County line which is about a quarter mile. Baldinger said due in part to the city being in fiscal emergency, ODOT has agreed to do the project at no cost. "Our portion of the project is about $10,000. Our city manager contacted ODOT and said it would be detrimental to the city to come up with money because we're in fiscal emergency. ODOT said as long as we give them authorization to do the project they will figure out the funding for it," Baldinger said. In other business, council approved an ordinance to amend permanent appropriations for the fire department. More than $6,000 in FEMA grant money will used for fire investigation materials, prevention and safety materials. Council also approved a property easement agreement with 10 property owners who will be affected by the Ohio 598 road widening project.  The city will get the properties for more $19,000.
