CRIDERSVILLE — Discussions continue among an area village’s elected officials as they talk about possibly raising water and sewer rates — but one thing is for sure, something needs to be done.
Cridersville Village Council members and Mayor Lorali Myers met during a special Committee-of-the-Whole meeting Thursday to discuss the inevitability of increasing water and sewer rates on village residents and businesses.
“Unfortunately, we are in a position that we will have to do something,” Councilor Stacey Cook said.
Wapakoneta City Schools administrators elected to use a special waiver day granted by the state to train staff on school safety.
Students are not to attend school on Friday, May 17, so staff throughout the district may receive updated training with the Wapakoneta Police Department and Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office.
Since the waiver day was approved by the Ohio Department of Education, it counts as a day students are in session. They were originally scheduled to attend class that day.
After edging up to start the year, the unemployment rate for Auglaize County in February decreased.
In data released by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Auglaize County registered an unemployment rate of 5.8 percent, a decrease from 6.2 percent in January. Last year, the unemployment rate sat at 6.8 percent.
