After school program awarded grant

November 22, 2011

Calling it the best return on any city investment, Council approved a $185,000 grant at Monday's Council meeting for Akron’s after school program, which provides learning activities to more than 4,000 students at 27 elementary Community Learning Centers. Council also passed a resolution opposing the merger of the Akron and Cleveland postal processing operations. The merger would eliminate 241 jobs in Akron. Council and the administration plan to meet with Postal Service authorities to explore options to save those jobs.
