Beerman first told KPCW he intended to run for a second term at the end of April, but after filing official candidate paperwork with the city this week, he said he did not make his final decision until just a couple of weeks ago at the two-day council retreat in May.

 

The deadline to submit comments on a proposed contaminated soil landfill at Quinn’s Junction is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 4 – however, last-minute concerns being raised by the public and at least one Summit County Councilor is asking city officials to delay the deadline.
