At the request of a city resident, Wapakoneta city administrators plan to investigate the cost of planting larger trees the entire length of the East Auglaize Street reconstruction project.
Wapakoneta’s mayor says he is encouraged by the latest city income tax revenue report, but he is aware those numbers fluctuate thro-ughout the year.
He also voiced concerned that employment numbers in the region may be causing problems for local industries to find qualified workers, which if they could reach full employment would help city income tax collections climb higher.
Through April, the city of Wapakoneta collected $940,490 in income taxes, compared to $903,260 in 2012 and $902,383 in 2011.
