KEY ACTION Aldi is looking to build a grocery store in Hartville. The store would be at the intersection of Market Avenue and W. Maple Street.
DISCUSSION Aldi will be presenting its plans to the planning commission Jan. 8 at 7 p.m. According to Mayor Richard Currie, the proposed plan is a stand-alone grocery store. The Jan. 8 meeting will be the first time the village officials will review plans for the store.
OTHER ACTION Village Engineer Rob Graham discussed the preliminary tie-in incentive plan the city of Canton Water Department is considering to offer residents and business owners to connect to the new water line.
The plan they are considering would offer residents 50 percent off the frontage assessment if they tie in within a year, 40 percent off within two years and 30 percent off if they tie in within three years. Also, they are considering a zero percent interest rate that would allow the residents to make their assessment in their monthly water bill over 10 years and, for business owners, a zero percent interest rate to be paid back in their water bill over five years.
The Water Department will determine the plans by the end of the week.
