’20 voters remove bond issues

This week in history

99 years ago in 1920:

Voters of Trumbull County heartily approved during the primary election the idea of removing all bond issues, outstanding Jan. 20, 1920, out of the 15-mill tax levy.

The vote on the proposition was 4,391 for and 2,658 against.

This meant that the special one-mill levy voted four years previous for a sinking fund might be used for the upkeep and repair of county roads.

This mill however, was to all be used up in the year, and it was necessary to ask for another levy for that purpose in the November election.

The Bristolville Pioneer Park and Cemetery Commission held a meeting to make further plans in regards to the restoration of Pioneer Cemetery.

The group praised Walter Smith for the marker that he made and which was placed at the south entrance. The entrance was marked by an archway with the name of the cemetery forming the top of the arch.

Architects of the newly renovated commissioners -owned Trumbull County Stone Building, on North Park Avenue and High Street NW, were doing the work for free after Local 3808 had filed grievances on behalf of the government employees working there claimed the floor had sagged.

Kim Phillips of Phillips-Sekanic Architects of Warren said the floor problems in a file room resulted because of a lack of communication over how many records would be stored in the space.

Phillips blamed improper weight distribution for the troubles and rows of files were running in the opposite direction of the floor joices.

A 68-year-old Duke Street SE Warren man told police someone broke through the walls from a vacant apartment next door and took his bedroom furniture.

He left his residence and when he returned less than a week later, he found someone had broken into the vacant apartment next door. The person broke through the walls of the vacant residences until they got to his residence through the utility room wall. Taken were a full-sized bed, drawers, night stands and a dresser.
