Forney, Hefner take oath of office

July 07, 2015

Judge Thomas Teodosio at the start of Monday evening City Council meeting swore two new Council Representatives into office. Ward 10’s Jack Hefner has been serving on Council for several weeks since being chosen to fill Gary Moneypenny’s vacant seat. Monday was new At-large Council Representative DeAndre Forney’s first Council meeting. He replaced Mayor Jeff Fusco on Council. Legislation approved Monday included conditional zoning for a drive-up ATM on West Market St. for Chase Bank, a lease agreement with a private developer for land to expand a business at the Akron Municipal Airport, and a resolution that is one step in the process of acquiring land needed to re-route the Towpath Trail for the Ohio Canal Interceptor Tunnel project.
