City Council approves new apartment complex

By TIM WILLIS

Improvements at the Ohio House

The new proprietors of the Ohio House intend to expend a large sum of money in renovating and improving that property, and they are anxious to have Main and Sacramento streets macadamized in front of the premises. In order to have this done they offered to furnish any kind of crushed rock the city might name, on cars at the depot free of charge.
