Shadyside council hears from energy consultant

Rynkievich also asked for permission to hold the Shadyside Invitational this coming September.

Council approved both requests.

OR&W Fire Chief Dave Lenz asked to have several streets closed for preparation and duration of the Fireman’s Festival. The streets in question are 39th Central to 39th Lincoln and 39th Street South to 40th Street South. The streets will be shut down from July 28 to Aug. 3.

Mayor Bob Newhart stressed to citizens that they must park with the flow of traffic. Some have been parking the opposite and it is causing problems.
