Water leaks, state authority grab Council's attention

July 14, 2015

Council passed a resolution Monday evening to explore technology and other options for alerting water customers when a leak is detected and providing financial relief when their water bill spikes due to the leak. Council also passed a resolution opposing Ohio House Bill 8, which amends oil and gas laws to take away all authority from cities with regard to oil and gas drilling and fracking. If passed, Akron’s parks and streets could be included in a drilling unit without city permission.
