Council shifted another $500,000 into Akron's 2015 street resurfacing budget Monday evening. The city now has more than $2 million earmarked for repairing winter damage to city streets. The additional money became available by delaying until 2016 planned ditch improvements and traffic signalization projects. Council also approved a new parking lot for Panyard Inc., a growing steel drum maker in Kenmore that developed a new method for manufacturing and mass-producing steel drums sold primarily to schools. Panyard also uses traditional handcrafting methods to make steel drums that it exports to musicians worldwide.
