On Wednesday, the City Council removed from its agenda and cancelled a Nov. 20 public hearing on a proposal to rezone acreage on College Street near the intersection with State Route 57.
Rezoning of the acreage had been proposed by the Stop'nGo company as a site for a new store to replace the one at 500 College St. The new store was also to include gasoline pumps and a car wash.
However, neighborhood residents raised a number of concerns about the proposed Stop'nGo, and the Planning Commission recommended the council not rezone the property.
Planning Director Jeff Kaiser informed council's Economic Development Committee at its meeting this month that the applicant for the rezoning had withdrawn its request for the rezoning. The withdrawal means council is no longer required council to act on the issue.
The council placed on third reading legislation to increase cable television rates. The legislation proposes basic service rates to increase from the present $13.15 monthly to $13.75 monthly, enhanced service rates from $43.15 to $46.30, digital basic service rates from $53.70 to $57.60, enhanced service rates plus high definition from $50.15 to $53.60 and digital basic service rates plus high definition from $60.70 to $64.90. Customers outside the city pay higher rates.
Wadsworth Community Television has over 4,000 customers.
