Jun 29, 2012

Columbus City Council this week approved legislation authorizing the demolition of the 5th Avenue dam along the Olentangy River. 

Sponsoring Council member Eileen Pailey says the legislation also allows for the partial restoration of the river's ecosystem. Pailey says the state of Ohio is paying the majority of the nearly 7-million dollar pricetag.
