Neighbors involved in a decade-long dispute that usually results in trash throwing
A 64-year-old man was issued a criminal mischief citation on Friday for his part in a longtime, neighborly dispute. Mitchell Buckley, a Pettibone Road resident, threw a plastic bottle on his neighbor's lawn. Though it seems trivial, Solon Police Lt. Bruce Felton said the citation appears to stem from repeated calls from Buckley's 50-year-old neighbor over the years.

Two members of Solon's Public Works Committee are questioning a change order that would add $86,858 to the roughly $14 million project to rebuild Pettibone Road. But this might not be the only additional cost for the city, which has already approved three other change orders for the project, raising the price by nearly $1.6 million. Law Director Thomas Lobe told the Public Works Committee that the city is discussing with contractor Kenmore Construction Company Inc. who will pay an additional $900,000 in costs. Who will end up paying those costs remains up in the air, Lobe said. He said he and other city officials will be meeting with Kenmore representatives July 1. "It's an ongoing issue," Lobe said. As for the most recent requested …
