Improvements Plan Still Being Discussed

Local News

Zanesville Mayor Howard Zwelling is asking city council members to “Work with me” when it comes to his capital improvements plan for the Interskate Park, Gant Municipal Stadium and Secrest Auditorium.

Compared to previous meetings, Council Chambers were nearly empty as Mayor Zwelling made another push to have his upgrade plans approved by council members, saying it is a lot of money, but its long term money.

Nearly $700,000 in upgrades are being proposed at a time when many who show opposition to the plan, are saying the money should be spent on something that will bring profit to the city.

It will be another two weeks before any actions can be taken by council for the improvement plan.
