School pledges assistance for drainage

City asks for use of soccer fields during joint session

SOLON– Everyone appreciated the update.
The Solon City Council and the Solon school board met in joint session last week, discussing the long-term potential for shared services and facilities as well as more immediate concerns like raging surface water running through a residential subdivision.

Marshek residents still bailing water

Neighbors claim school trail has made things worse

SOLON– The residents of Marshek Court are waterlogged once more.
The beleaguered neighborhood off Sovers Street is again experiencing drainage issues, and homeowners shared their grievances with the Solon City Council last week.
It’s been six years since the city agreed to help maintain the detention pond and intakes that serve the area, but according to residents, things are as bad as ever.
“There’s so much water that comes off the school grounds, we’re trying to push so much water through such a small pipe, it’s unreal,” resident Randy Cline told council members Tuesday night.

What can be done to protect Randall park?

Council hesitant to repeat flood damage

SOLON– What will happen to Randall Park?
Damage caused by the flooding of Mill Creek in April has rendered Randall Park unusable, and council members began considering options at a meeting last week.

Facing a minimum of $25,000 in repairs and the possibility of a $100,000 project to protect the vulnerable area, council members recommended the cancelation of June events at the park and its shelter.

MS schedule works- if you’re in band or choir

Administrators lament lack of flexibility for non-music students

SOLON– Sixty-four percent of Solon’s middle school students participate in either band or choir.
But for the remaining 35 percent, there are no options except study hall.
The scheduling dilemma was discussed at the April 8 meeting of the Solon school board and options will be explored in the coming months as administrators attempt to align possible academic changes with a long-range facilities plan.
The Solon Middle School operates on an eight-period day, but the periods are now arranged in a adjusted block to allow for a transition to the high school’s block schedule.

SOLON– Residents of Solon continued to sandbag Wednesday evening as rapidly rising waters closed in on the city’s sewage plant.
