The Crawford County Land Bank will be working to help return vacant, low value properties to productive use. This involves acquiring properties and sometimes managing the demolition of unwanted, blighted residential structures. The land bank will not seek to hold properties for extended periods of time but can transfer land to interested and eligible landowners.
Currently, the Crawford County Land Bank is working to acquire blighted, vacant homes that have been recommended for demolition, using funding provided by a grant from the State of Ohio. We need to have 35 vacant homes in our possession by May 18, 2017 in order to continue to qualify for the full amount of the grant funding. We can receive properties by the Tax Foreclosure process and donations. At this time, it would be beneficial if any property owner would like to donate an unwanted, low value residential property to the land bank for demolition. Please contact Barb McCullough, manager at 419-562-7861 or send a message for further information.
The intersection of Marion Road-SR 4 and West Southern Avenue is closed until the afternoon of June 19, 2018 for final street repairs.
Thursday, June 14, 2018
The following streets will be milled out in preparation for paving
Elite Excavation will soon begin the long-awaited rebuilding of Plymouth Street which includes new curbs, sidewalks along with storm water and sewer separation. They will be bringing in equipment the week of June 11th and begin construction the week of June 18, 2018. The total project is planned to be completed by October. Traffic will be maintained in one direction on Plymouth Street during the construction process and we expect Irving Street to see more traffic because of the restrictions for Plymouth Street.
Please be aware that beginning June 18, 2018, on-street parking on East Irving Street will be temporarily eliminated until the Plymouth Street project is finished in the fall. Please make arrangements to park in your driveways or side streets during the project. We apologize for the inconvenience. This will be a bit of a challenge for all of us who live in the Plymouth Street/Irving Street area but it will be worth it!
Thanks for your patience.
Fellow Residents of Bucyrus:
Thursday was an historic day in Bucyrus. Transparency in local government is here to stay! I led the effort to open our city's finance to you the taxpayer by being one of the very first municipalities in the state to sign up for OhioCheckbook.com. I met with Ohio State Treasurer, Josh Mandel on September 24 in Columbus for the announcement. Just go to www.ohiocheckbook.com and click on the "Local Gov and Schools" tab in the upper right hand corner. Enter "Bucyrus" to view our city's checkbook and see how we spend your tax dollars.
Thanks to City Auditor Joyce Schifer for providing support to Treasurer Mandel's office during the implementation of the program. Joyce's support was critical in making Bucyrus a leader in government transparency.
Mayor Jeff Reser
