Loan for bridges: Engineer seeks funds to replace structures

February 15, 2013

For the first time in 30 years, the Auglaize County engineer is taking out a loan for bridge replacement projects.
“I’m not comfortable with taking a loan out for the first time, but in this case I have to,” Auglaize County Engineer Doug Reinhart said. “I don’t want to create debt for the county or the next engineer, but it adds up to me needing to move forward with this.”
The loan from the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) is for $176,000, to be combined with a county match of $44,000. Interest on the 20-year loan is zero percent and it would be repaid at less than $9,000 annually.
