Two feet may make a difference in who controls the Hamilton Street dam, but Wapakoneta city administrators say they hope the state will cede jurisdiction to the city.
“We are trying to get a definitive answer from the governing authority,” Wapakoneta Mayor Rodney Metz said after Monday’s Wapakoneta City Council meeting. “We want to preserve the dam that we have and keep it in place because of the activities we have due to the water we have in the city and primarily downtown and the beautification project we have planned for downtown.
A local Wapakoneta family had part of their home destroyed in the wind storm on Friday, but they are keeping positive as they get ready to rebuild their home.
Heather and Craig Nolte, and their two daughters, Allison, 14, and Emma, 10, had two trees demolish their sunroom and living room.
“We are very fortunate we are fine and we have somewhere to go,” Wapakoneta Area Economic Development Council Assistant Director Heather Nolte said. “We are staying positive through all of this.”
UNIOPOLIS — A street issue involving a small 30-foot stretch of land is no longer a dead issue in Uniopolis.
A dead end sign posted on South East Street in Uniopolis notifies motorists there is no outlet. The 30-foot stretch of grassy area at the end of the paving goes into the Trupointe Cooperative site where farmers take produce to be weighed.
Residents on the street said farmers should not be using the road as a short cut to get to Trupointe and that its use by farmers poses a safety risk to kids who play in the area.
