During last night’s financial meeting, Steubenville city council asked Finance Director Dave Lewis about funding the Port Authority an additional $15,000 and he believes he can make that work.

During council’s regular session, there was final reading for an ordinance stating that only grant funds will be utilized for the Steubenville Marina Waterline Project. It passed with a “yes” vote from all council members.

City Engineer Mike Dolak stated that since grant money could only be used, he requested a $60,000 grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission.

Also discussed were scheduling conflicts with Election Day, Christmas Eve, and New Years Eve in which council would not meet. Also the Steubenville Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony is November 26, and council moved that week’s meeting to Monday, November 25.

They also decided to move Halloween Trick-or-Treat in Steubenville to Sunday from 4:30 to 6:30 due to the rain expected on Thursday.
