MASSILLON  The city is negotiating with the construction contractor for last year’s downtown Lincoln Way streetscape project on repairs stemming from an unfinished “punch list.”

City Law Director Justin Richard said both sides — the city and Central Allied Enterprises — are working to remedy the situation through the existing contract.

A phone message left earlier this week with a Central Allied official was not immediately returned.

Some “punch-list fixes,” or repairs, being discussed are related to sidewalks, curbs and decorative brick from the 2019 project. The mayor mentioned those issues to council during a meeting earlier this year.

An executive session related to the streetscape “punch list” was held during City
