NITRO, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Nitro City Council addressed several issues at its meeting Tuesday night, including an upcoming street paving project and its support of the Kanawha County Public Library levy.

The paving project is expected to cost a little more than $100,000.

The streets to be paved are: 20th Street to 2nd Avenue, half of 12th Street, the top section of 6th Street, one section of 2nd Avenue, half of 31st Street and half of Hillside Drive.

Council also decided to start putting aside money to buy some equipment for road work instead of renting it, mainly to alleviate overtime costs.

In other business, council passed a resolution showing its support for the Kanawha County Public Library Levy. The levy, which failed to pass last year, is being placed on the November ballot.

If the levy is passed, it would cost $1.36 per month for a person with a $100,000 home and $15,000 car.

Also during the meeting, it was announced that the city of Nitro will open its dog park this Sunday. The celebration at Ridenour Lake will take place from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday.

It also was announced that the city of Nitro is looking for ways to display its array of World War I history.

Nitro Mayor Dave Casebolt said some council members will join a museum committed to come up with plans to develop a museum.
