Mayor halts Buchanan Street work

Managing Editor

Buchanan Street will have to wait.

Mayor Tom Stinebaugh confirmed to the Wapakoneta Daily News on Wednesday that the already scheduled reconstruction of Buchanan Street, from West Benton to South Street, has been cancelled. The move by the administration was announced at Tuesday’s meeting of the city’s Tree Commission.

“We — the Safety-Service Director, the City Auditor and I — decided to delay the project when we found out money for the project was going to be borrowed,” Stinebaugh said Wednesday afternoon. “This is not what we signed up to do.”
