Overgrown hill back on Youngstown mowing schedule

Youngstown parks mowing

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The overgrown and unsightly property on Youngstown’s West Side that was once Borts Pool is back on a maintenance schedule.

WKBN First News took neighbor’s complaints about the overgrown grass problem on the property of off Belle Vista Avenue to the Youngstown Parks and Recreation Department. We learned that the problem stemmed from understaffing and weather made it impossible to mow the hill safely.

Crews were out Friday mowing the area after an initial pass last Friday.

No further problems are anticipated with the upkeep of the grounds.
