Three reports regarding trees along the proposed $2.1 million West Auglaize Street reconstruction project should provide the details needed to decide which trees stay and which trees need to be removed, Mayor Rodney Metz told Wapakoneta City Council members during Monday’s meeting.
Metz is awaiting reports from city Engineering Superintendent Mary Ruck, Ohio Department of Natural Resources Urban Forester Stephanie Miller and Choice One Engineering consultants. Choice One Engineering is the firm working with the city on the street project.
Area residents are being reminded to be on alert for common scams associated with the warm weather season.
Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon issued a warning to residents this week.
“Typically, in this season, we receive complaints where citizens are victims of fraudulent repairs to the home,” Solomon said.
He said the repair scams often involve spouting, tree trimming, house or barn painting, asphalt driveway resurfacing, or lightening rod replacement.
Bells will be ringing during an upcoming concert by an internationally acclaimed bell choir in Wapakoneta.
The Raleigh Ringers, hosted by St. Paul United Church of Christ (UCC), are returning to the area after a quickly sold out concert also hosted by the church in 2009. This time, the bell choir will take to the stage of the Wapakoneta Performing Arts Center on May 26, which is the last Sunday of the month.
