A Struthers businessman finally received an award from City Council Wednesday, a controversy within city government for more than a month.

On March 13, Charlie Jasinski, owner of Charlie’s Service, was recognized at the Struthers City Council meeting for 30 years of service in the community. He was honored even though he had been charged with violating city laws, specifically having inoperable vehicles on his property.

Council voted that night six to one to honor Jasinski. Struthers Mayor Terry Stocker was not in agreement with the resolution saying it sent the wrong message.

At the next council meeting on March 27, Stocker vetoed the resolution to recognize Jasinski.

The mayor has since allowed the resolution to stand. He even congratulated Jasinski at Wednesday’s meeting.
