  Original Published: 9/6/2013Motorists could see a reduction in the speed limit on parts of Park Avenue West in Ontario. Ontario City Council held the first of three readings Thursday on an ordinance to reduce the speed limit from 50 to 45 miles per hour. The Ohio Department of Transportation conducted the study from portions of Park Ave. West to Lexington-Springmill Road to the city limits of Ohio 314. Based upon the findings from the study ODOT recommended the reduction of the speed limit. "Our legislation acknowledged what the state recommended. We'll have two more readings of the ordinance before a decision is made," council president Daniel Zeiter said.  In other business, council issued a proclamation to construct a sign naming a park located in the Spring Village subdivision Doris Carr Park. The proclamation was presented to Carr's family. Council also approved an ordinance to contribute $5,000 to the Ohio State University Mansfield campus towards the cost of an area-wide sanitary sewer study. The university is building a second apartment complex for out-of-town students. The Buckeye Village Apartments will be built on six acres of property adjacent to the campus, on Lexington-Springmill Rd.
