Cleveland City Council approves $10 million in funding to repair West Side Market
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland City Council approved $10 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding for repairs to the historic West Side Market Monday night.
The city council spokesperson said the funding can combined with an additional $3.3 million that council approved in 2022 for a new roof to be constructed on the market.
They also passed $1.25 million last year for three freight elevator replacements, which has just started.
Council members also discussed increasing the parking fees at the West Side Market parking lot, after the market is closed, when the lot is used by customers going to bars and restaurants on W. 25th.
The fee is currently $1 an hour, with the increase possibly being a funding stream for market improvements.
