City asks for grant to study child violence

March 14, 2017

Council approved the city's application for a $30,000 grant from the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services. The grant will be used to hire an Akron Youth Violence Facilitator who will research youth violence in the city and develop an intervention plan. Council also passed a resolution Monday evening opposing the transfer of a liquor permit to Game 7 Bar & Grille, citing several recent shootings and many more police responses to violence at the bar.
