The City Council approved a contract with Red Robotics, Inc. on Tuesday to survey the city's sewer system with robots to determine what repairs are needed.
That contract is expected to cost nearly $750,000.
The council also adopted a resolution opposing House Bill 5 now under discussion in the Ohio General Assembly.
HB5, as now written, may cost Wadsworth up to $100,000 annually and a one time expense of $380,000 according to an analysis by city treasurer Catherine Fix.
An attempt to suspend the rules to allow a contract for the building of the new outdoor pool was turned down because only five councilpersons voted in favor. Six votes were needed. Thus, the ordinance had to be placed on second reading.
