Summit supervisors favor CL Park sale
Written by Roseanne Staab

Summit Township supervisors held their August public meeting, with Supervisors Bill Agnew, Harry McGrath and Jerauld Smith in attendance. Secretary Cindy McCoy took the minutes and there were 25 citizens in attendance.

Supervisor Bill Agnew instructed the public to sign their names to the attendance sheet, and informed them that anyone who wanted to speak must state their name aloud. He asked why only one man’s name appeared on the meeting agenda.

Several men in the audience answered that they had tried to call the township with no success.

Agnew then stated that the Board and the Solicitor, William Walker, would listen to brief comments in regard to the ongoing issues of local Conneaut Lake Park.
