UA and Morrison ask ethics commission to examine purchase

The University of Akron and UA Trustee Jack Morrison have asked the Ohio Ethics Commission to examine the University's purchase of property owned by Morrison's son. The property in question, part of a 14-parcel acquisition approved by the state's Controlling Board Monday, lies in the footprint of the construction site for the University's new stadium.

In a message to David Freel, executive director of the Ohio Ethics Commission, UA General Counsel and Secretary to the Board Ted Mallo notes that, while the University and Morrison “believe that both The University of Akron and Trustee Morrison acted appropriately in this matter, we would welcome an independent and fair examination of this transaction by the Commission.” The purpose of the request, according to Mallo's message, is “to assure that the transaction was done in compliance with applicable Ohio ethics laws.”

Concerns about the sale initially were raised by two members of the Controlling Board.

Second update about Exchange Street deck project

Zipmail earlier today reported that work would shift from the east side to the west side of the Exchange Street Deck tomorrow. Motorists were advised to begin parking on the east side starting tomorrow.

Because of the cold weather, the contractor has decided to keep the east side closed tomorrow to allow materials to cure completely. This means that both the east and much of the west side of the deck will be closed tomorrow.

If you regularly park in the deck, you are advised to arrive on campus a few minutes early in case the Exchange Street Deck is full. These lots are typically underused on Fridays: Lots 1, 7, 9, 20, 32, 35 or 54. Show me these lots on a map.
