North Canton City Council could pass its proposed graffiti ordinance at its 7 p.m. meeting inside City Council Chambers tonight.
The ordinance, which aims to help business owners remove graffiti on their buildings in a timely manner, has been discussed, tabled, removed from the table and tweaked since it was proposed in mid-June.
Also on the agenda for tonight is the first reading for the Recycling Makes Sense Grant Agreement between the city and and the Stark-Tuscarawas-Wayne Joint Solid Waste Management District. "The more North Canton recycles, the more grant dollars we get," said Mayor David Held at council's Oct. 15 meeting. Held said the city earns anywhere from $25 to $45 per ton of recyclables. The city pulled in $38,000 in 2011 through the grant.
Council members will also hear from visitors before they start reading through the ordinances and resolutions tonight.
