PARROTTSVILLE-Parrottsville Mayor Mary Keller said Wednesday, July 10, that the Parrottsville City Council has reluctantly decided to take the county to court following its rejection of Parrottsville's latest offer to relocate the county's convenience center from the center of town.

Keller said, "One reason we didn't contact an outside attorney before is that we didn't want to pull the (Parrottsville) Ruritan Club into it. But since they own the land (the convenience center is located on), it's inevitable."

She also stated, "We'd like to get the ball field (under construction, adjacent to the convenience center) opened, but can't with the traffic" of people dumping their trash, and TIDI Waste trucks that empty the dumpsters on a regular basis.

The Parrottsville City Council held a called meeting on Tuesday, July 9, to discuss what action the city would take after the county refused to move the convenience center to an area off Highway 340 that is located close to downtown, but more secluded.
