According to the Times Reporter, the land belongs to Howard Wenger. Approximately 181 acres were purchased from Lawrence Township nearly a decade ago, while an additional 65 acres were purchased in 2012. The second purchase totaled $1.1 million and was welcomed by the Bolivar Village Council because it allowed the village to become debt free, as well as provide a surplus of revenue of approximately $400,000. Last November, some residents, joined by opponents from Lawrence Township, capped a year of arguing with Bolivar Village Council by getting the zoning initiative on the ballot and passing it by a 238-158 vote. Wenger, who owns Massillon Materials, had provided a revenue stream that would have allowed the village to invest in beautification projects to boost tourism and gradually replace old water lines.
