The council also accepted an agreement with the Canton Motorcycle club that would allow the group to use the city-owned former motorcycle track for an upcoming event, provided provisions regarding "legally assessed" taxes and pollution to Canton Lake are removed.

Furthermore, the group will pay $250 upfront and 50 percent of the gate fees, though the $250 will be subtracted from the city's half of the fees. The club will likely need to seek a special use permit from the county for the event as the track is city owned, but not within city limits.
