The City of Akron may cut down hundreds of trees to bring in some much-needed cash.
City Council is considering a plan to allow logging bids along the LaDue Reservior. Up to 420 mature, hardwood trees of all different species would be removed near Bartholomew Road and State Route 44.
The argument is logging will not only generate up to $80,000 dollars, but it's also good for forest health allowing younger trees to flourish.
Those who live in the area aren't so sure about the proposal.
"My biggest concern is to protect the wildlife that's here. And the nesting bald eagles. Hundreds of people enjoy it every day," resident Debbie Davis told WKYC Channel 3.
The City of Akron says if the legislation passes, bids will be taken in January with logging to start in the spring.
