Briar Hill Lake dam deal called 'unprecedented'

Posted: Thursday, January 29, 2009 12:00 am

An ordinance authorizing a storm-water-management lease agreement with the Briar Hill Lake Homeowners Association led to debate last week between Solon City Council members and members of the association.

The private dam in the Briar Hill Lake subdivision, which is north of the Route 422 freeway, has been discussed in the city for over a decade. The issue surrounding the dam arose about eight years ago, when the Ohio Department of Natural Resources mandated that it be upgraded or removed. At that time, the homeowners association began to seek the city's participatation in rebuilding the dam, which had cost estimates of over $1 million.
