One Wapakoneta City Council member is urging his fellow councilors to consider residents’ objections to the installation of sidewalks along five streets in Grandview Estates.
Another councilor points out the work is a city improvement, in the city right-of-way and is paid completely with state and federal funds with no assessments on the property owner.
Local health officials remain hopeful that changes will be made to limit the impact of the state’s biennial budget bill.
With the budget bill still in committee for hearings, Auglaize County Health Commissioner Charlotte Parsons said Health Commissioners Association board members have proposed amendments they hope can be included to help limit the impact of proposed changes before the new state fiscal year begins July 1.
“There are a number of problems with it that get bigger and bigger as you think about it,” Parsons said.
