Enbridge Mellen

A parcel of land owned by the city of Mellen was acquired in 1991 from Ashland County with a provision that the land be used as a public park, Mellen Mayor Joe Barabe said. That provision may prohibit the sale of the property to Enbridge Energy.

The city of Mellen’s plan to sell more than five acres of land to Enbridge Energy Co. for more than $4 million now is on hold because the city may not have permission to sell the property.

Mellen Mayor Joe Barabe said the land just outside Mellen was acquired by the city from Ashland County in 1991 with a provision that the property would be used as a public park.
