Joint fire district study passes Norton, Barberton council

Ordinance No. 80-2019 was also adopted with a 7-1 vote in relation to the joint fire district study with the city of Norton.

Mayor William Judge stated that Norton passed this ordinance at their meeting last week, with a 6-1 vote. Councilwoman At-Large Carla Debevec made the remark that she would vote yes because she’s curious to see the outcome of the study, while Wokojance voted no because she feels there isn’t enough information in regards to cost, where that money will come from or which company will be used to perform the study.

Mayor Judge stated that he doesn’t want to “put the cart before the horse” and that once the ordinance passes, they will work with the city of Norton to determine the next steps. He also reminded everybody that if any additional money is needed, it will have to be presented to council anyways.
