Glitter not gold for former Summit employee
In an incident that insiders called "Glittergate", a 25-year-old former Summit County employee has been found guilty of vandalizing her supervisor's work space by tossing glitter and other items around. Police say Samantha Lockhart trashed the cubicle with silly string, toilet paper and an unknown powder back in January; some county computer equipment was damaged. Lockhart will be sentenced in November.
Trustees to Vote, Again, on Possible Housing Development
Another vote is planned when it comes to a proposed housing development in Jackson Twp. This week the Twp Zoning Commission recommended that trustees move forward with rezoning an area southeast of the Hills and Dales Road and Brunnerdale Avenue intersection. The rezoning would allow for developer Donald DeVille to build three 34 unit buildings with two and three story options; four two-story buildings, each with 12 units and detached condominiums in that area. In the past more than 30 area residents have spoken against the rezoning, siting concerns about flooding, inconsistent use and traffic. Trustees are expected to take a final vote during their October 27th meeting.
