City officials shared progress on tackling water main breaks and the smart-water meter project at a public forum. At the last public forum of the year on Dec.10, City Manager Joe Neeb and City Engineer Louis Najar addressed work on water main breaks on West Gayle Street and West McGaffey. Neeb said the number of water main breaks has influenced the decision for the city to begin drafting a master plan for the water infrastructure — similar to the street condition survey for improvements that have begun citywide. “That will be a conversation we have at council — is doing the master planning for our infrastructure as well, too,” Neeb said. “We don’t like to have to keep dealing with these main breaks on the basis that we are doing. And they’re controlling us, we’re not controlling them. So, the intent is to get a better picture as to what we have out there — because again, we want to focus on those things that are the most important … [Read more...] about Water infrastructure master plan in works

Washington Post While a housing crisis rages in high-priced coastal cities, where modest homes can sell for in excess of $1 million and governments promote affordable-housing options, an entirely different problem is playing out closer to the country’s interior. In America’s Rust Belt and parts of the Northeast, millennials and young professionals are leaving rather than moving in, and populations there are dwindling. Among those who remain, both the residents and the houses are aging. There is no shortage of homes in Akron, Ohio, for example. But most of them are old, too many sit vacant and hundreds of abandoned houses are torn down each year. Akron’s population has dipped from nearly 300,000 residents in the early 1960s to fewer than 200,000 today. Rather than engaging in managed decline, the city last year approved a 100 percent exemption on the added property value of any new home construction or renovation valued at $5,000 or more for 15 years.
