Ripon Common Council Continues Akin Street Discussions

Ripon City Administrator Lori Rich says the Common Council isn’t through with its discussions about what to do with Akin Street. She says its really more of an alley, which people have been using as short cut with the Tygert Street Bridge being closed. She says they have considered abandoning the street and turning it over to two adjacent property owners, but need to speak with those property owners first. She says the Council hasn’t been in a huge rush to make a decision because they have to decide first what they are going to do about the bridge, which is closed because it is not considered safe.
