Mayor Katherine Procop said the city would use the building for the Twinsburg Community Theatre
The Twinsburg City Council plans to purchase the old township hall from Twinsburg Township for $210,000. The city council approved the contract on Tuesday night. The township still has to approve the contract as well, but Procop said she believes the township will accept the city's offer, which was reached after a long negotiation. Procop said the city wants to buy the building, located on Ravenna Road next to the Twins Days Festival offices, so that the Twinsburg Community Theatre could use the building for storage and other purposes. Right now, the Old School is used for storage for the community theatre, Procop said.
