BUCKLAND â An environmental issue is pushing its way to the forefront in Buckland.
Buckland Village Council members agreed to schedule a public meeting to inform residents and answer questions concerning building a new centrally-tied sewer system in the village.
Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials have mandated that the small village begin plans to update the sewer system. Currently, each resident has independently-operated septic tanks.
The meeting has been set for 7:30 p.m. on June 28 at the Buckland community building where council meetings are now held.
The village of Cridersville will soon have a sign in front of the Cridersville Village Hall to display announcements and to keep village residents informed on events.
A local church, Westview United Methodist Church, in Cridersville, purchased a new outdoor sign for their church, and they gave the opportunity to the village of Cridersville to purchase their old sign for a low price of $50.
The cost for the village to purchase a new sign would be approximately $17,000, Mayor Lorali Myers said during Mondayâs council meeting.
Lack of funding is preventing Wapakoneta City Schools from offering its traditional summer school to students who may need the extra assistance.
While looking for a less costly alternative, a free online program was found that would provide opportunities for students of all levels to practice skills on which they can improve throughout the summer.
âOdyssey allows all our students to work at their own pace on material that is appropriate for them,â said Carrie Knoch, the districtâs gifted intervention, gifted coordination and literacy coach, who is overseeing the program.
