The project is planned for one- and-a-half acres at the intersection of Routes 92 and 15, near Battle- ground Crossing Shopping Center. Nu-lech Housing, a development rum from Reynoidsburg, Ohio, con- tacted the city with its proposal for the complex and asked the city to annex the property. The firm said construction will begin shortly after it purchases the property and it is an- nexed. Completion time is expected to be 12 to t8 months. No action has yet been taken on annexation. In other business, the Council passed a resolution supporting City efforts to secure a $400,000 Small Cities Block Grant. If received, the funds would be used for renovations in the Tuckahoe Road area, includ- ing repairs and upgrading of streets, sidewalks, water lines, and sewer lines. The Council voted to award the White Sulphur Springs Rescue Squad a one-year lease on the op- eration of the concession stands at the city's recreational facilities. The lease agreement specifies the group will give 17 1/2 per cent of its profits to the City and will donate 10 per cent to White Sulphur Springs Junior High School at all games sponsored by the school. The latter amount was determined to help offset the loss of proceeds formerly earned by the school in its" operation of the stands. Council members voted sev- eral months ago to receive bids from outside concessionaires to allow for more consistent operation.
