Ontario City Council is moving forward with a recommendation to the Ohio Department of Transportation to lower the speed limit on portions of Park Avenue West after reviewing the results of a recent speed limit study.

Council approved an ordinance Thursday to lower the speed limit from 50mph to 45mph along Park Ave. West and Ohio 309.

"The reason behind this is we've had some significants accidents on that street. We actually wanted ODOT to lower the speed limit to 35 mph but the study determined 45mph was as low as they could go," Mayor Larry Collins said.

In other business, council approved an ordinance authorizing Mayor Collins to enter into a sales agreement with Jones Development Company Property Group, LLC, for the purchase of more than 22 acres of real estate in Ontario Industrial Park at 850 Beer Rd.
