YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown City Council continued making laws Wednesday evening to make the city look better.
Council agreed to allow the city to spend $1.5 million of mostly state money to fix sections of six main roads:
- McCollum Road
- Bears Den Road
- Early Road
- Oak Street Extension
- Logan Avenue
- Gibson Street
Council also granted the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation $1.5 million to help repair abandon homes.
Finally, it changed the city’s litter law, adding cigarette butts and gum to the items people are banned from throwing on the ground. If they’re caught littering, they can be arrested.
