Speaking at his monthly mayor’s breakfast, Mayor Cadle said the funds will go towards remediating the brownfield site, hopefully clearing the way towards development in the area. The mayor said he has received interest in building senior citizen housing at the site and additional condominiums in the area facing the Tuscarawas River.

Another project moving forward is the new Municipal Building to be located in the former Morgan Pharmacy building. The mayor said bid opening for the remodeling project is set for April 5 and the hope is to have the building open by the end of September.
