City-owned Land to be Used for a Commercial Driver’s License Driving School

November 20, 2018

On Monday, City Council passed an ordinance allowing for a lease agreement between the City of Akron and Stark State College to lease City-owned land at the Akron Fulton Airport to be used for a commercial driver’s license school. This approval was given after the Planning Committee met and discussed the proposed ordinance with Dr. Jones, President of Stark State College. This training will help to fill the lack of CDL drivers in the region, and starting salaries are $60-70,000 annually.
