Property owners nix paving project

A proposed street improvement project in northwest Albion was “dead on arrival” before the city council held a public hearing that was scheduled Tuesday night, Oct. 13, at the Albion Fire Station.
Andrew Devine, city administrator, reported that the project had received over 50 percent objections from property owners in the area, which was sufficient to kill the project and result in repeal of Ordinance 240(15), which was passed by the city council on Sept. 8 to create the district.
Devine said the proposal received objections from about 72 percent of property owners abutting the streets and alleys proposed for improvement.
