DISCUSSION: MAYOR FRANCIS H. CICCHINELLI, JR'S REVENGE ON NORTH CANTON?
Is Massillon Mayor Francis H. Cicchinelli, Jr's letter to Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher the reason "clause 5" got added to the North Canton "Jobs Ready Site" grant agreement?
Clause 5 (which was added to the North Canton agreement within the last ten days) may prohibit North Canton from using its $5 million grant to reconfigure the old Hoover site to prepare for the relocation of Altercare (and its approximate 270 jobs) from Jackson Township to North Canton because of language precluding IN-OHIO relocation UNLESS a waiver is obtained.
See the STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report/SCPR) article published yesterday - CLICK HERE.
The Report has learned that an Altercare official is in discussions with the Ohio Department of Development about this matter. Presumably, North Canton officials are too.
