Sun. 5:16pm: Lordstown woman sues over sewerline

LORDSTOWN – A village woman is asking Trumbull County courts for relief from being forced to make a costly addition to her sewerline, which she deems unnecessary.

Jodie L. Ciriello, 631 Salt Springs Road, filed an injunction last week with the Trumbull County Common Pleas court to stay a failure to comply citation while it remains pending in Newton Falls Municipal Court.

Ciriello said she was ordered to install a grinder pump on her property at a cost of $9,054, a fee she calls exorbitant.

She said her issues began several years ago when Lordstown put a sewerline on her street. Shortly thereafter, she was notified that she had to abandon her septic system and tie-in.

“It must have been about four years ago,” Ciriello said in a phone interview on Friday. “They want me to pay an extra $6,000 and I can’t do it.”
