ROSSFORD — After a lengthy discussion about its location, City Council approved relocating a waste water pump station from private property across Jennings Road into Veterans Park.
That the pump station would move from the front yard of the Cuprys family never seemed in doubt. Instead council members discussed the best place in the park for the small facility.
One location would have put the pump station between the tennis court and the baseball diamond and just north of the existing rest rooms.
The other location would be on the west side of the tennis courts. That location would cost $1,094,290, in line with what the Northwestern Water & Sewer District is planning to pay any way to upgrade the facility, so there would be no additional cost to system users.
The other site would cost about $200,000 more. That cost would be paid by users at 75 cents a month over 20 years.
Councilwoman Caroline Eckel said that the more expensive site would facilitate the upgrading of rest rooms. The park needs upgrade its rest rooms which are not handicapped accessible.
That would have to be done at a later date. Eckel said less piping would be needed to connect the new rest rooms.
Councilman Robert Ruse said that the piping needed was smaller and less expensive, and that it wasn’t worth the added expense.
Also, Eckel expressed concerns about having the station located in the middle of an open area.
The less expensive option was approved on a 5-2 vote with Eckel and Councilman Jerry Staczek in opposition.
