Several boxes of paperwork eligible to be destroyed is to be shredded as decided during a meeting of the Wapakoneta City Schools Records Commission.
Wapakoneta City Schools Treasurer Susan Rinehart said materials to be shredded fall under normal categories and length of times for which they must be kept as determined by the Ohio Revised Code.
â€śWeâ€™ve kept this stuff as long as we need to to maintain records,â€ť Rinehart said.
With the holiday weekend quickly approaching, there will be many celebrations and traditions involved â€” including fireworks. The Wapakoneta fire chief and the state fire marshal remind of the importance of following safety precautions to reduce the number of fires and fireworks related injuries.
â€śThe best way for Ohioans to prevent fireworks injuries is to attend a licensed, professional firework exhibition,â€ť State Fire Marshal Larry Flowers said. â€śKeep in mind that even trick and novelty fireworks, like sparklers, are inherently dangerous and can cause serious injury.â€ť
