Council President Jon Snyder said the next step is to wait for more details from the North Canton Little League about when the lights will be used
Lights or no lights at the North Canton Little League fields? It's a true toss-up. Twenty-two people spoke at North Canton's public hearing regarding proposed overhead lights, and of those 22 people, 11 were for and 11 were against the addition of the lights. Now, North Canton City Council awaits a rundown of information from the Little League directors, including when the lights will be in use. "What I asked to happen is that the directors of the Little League submit to us ... a request of hours they would potentially light the field and what they would do about the loud speaker system and the parking … so we can look at all that," Snyder said, adding council will meet with the board of directors Feb. 19. That's right; North Canton …

Several residents who live near the North Canton Little League fields spoke out against the possible addition of overhead lights at the city council meeting Monday night
Let there be light? Residents living near the North Canton Little League fields aren't so sure about that one. When North Canton City Council announced it would consider a change to the league's lease agreement, allowing overhead lights so athletes could play at night, residents were ready to share their concerns. At its Monday night meeting, council heard from several residents who just didn't think it was a good idea. They said nighttime play would increase the number of cars in the parking lot, which fills quickly, causing people to park illegally in the neighborhoods and walk to the ball fields. It would also mean they would hear the loud speaker after dark. Another concern — this one from nearby resident Dell Pucci — was that the …

Here's a quick rundown of what happened at Monday night's North Canton City Council meeting
Paul Beinlich, former executive director of the North Canton YMCA, was in the spotlight at Monday night's North Canton City Council meeting.

It's a national organization dedicated to improving ethics within society through organized decision-making and behavior. Beinlich, who had been with the YMCA for 40 years, retired from the Y in December 2011 and was replaced by Ben Wheeler. He's now working to strengthen the CHARACTER COUNTS! program throughout the city. "We are somewhat of a unique …

North Canton City Council met Monday night and discussed what the city would do with the building that houses the engineering and permits and inspection offices once those employees move to the North Canton Civic Center next year.
To sell or lease? North Canton City Council mulled over that one Monday night, wondering whether it would benefit the city more to sell the building that houses the engineering and permits and inspection offices, or if it would be better to lease it. The departments will move from 220 W. Maple St. into the North Canton Civic Center by Feb. 1, said Council President Jon Snyder at the group's meeting that night. He said the building will be appraised and, ideally, he'd like to see it in the hands of the Community Improvement Corporation (CIC). However, the city would need to open up the sale to other bidders. Mayor David Held said the building's sale or lease would reduce the number of city office buildings in North Canton and would save the…
