(ODOT) – An emergency repair of the Adena Road bridge over U.S. Route 35 is scheduled to begin May 2.

The overpass was closed March 29 following discovery that the bridge had been hit in an unreported incident resulting in severe damage to one of the bridge beams. The road will remain closed until repairs can be completed.

While keeping yards and other properties mowed is not a problem for most people, it appears that others don’t always get the message. That is why the City of Wellston is making it known that property that is no adequately mowed, will result in action taken by the city.

According to Wellston’s city website

93.15 CUTTING REQUIRED. (A) Any person owning or having charge of land (this would include any owner, company or lending institution) within the city shall keep the property free and clear of all grass, noxious weeds, and rank vegetation, and shall cut all of such on the lots owned or controlled by him or her at least four times in every year, two weeks before Memorial Day in May, two weeks before Independence Day on July 4th, two weeks before the end of July and two weeks before Labor day.

The mowing deadlines for 2022 are as follows:

  • May 16
  • June 20
  • July 18
  • August 22

If the owner or person having charge of such land fails to comply to cut grass/weeds, the Director of Public Service shall cause the grass, weeds, and rank vegetation to be cut and destroyed and may employ the necessary labor to perform such task. The owner or person having charge of such land, (this would include any owner, company or lending institution) who fails to comply with the notice to cut weeds, and violates this section, shall be charged $250 per each incident for a city lot of up to 120 x 60 feet.
