June 17, 2013

Managing Editor
A bill before state legislators is expected to streamline a patchwork of local rules, forms and definitions in regard to Ohio’s numerous municipal income tax, a state office holder says. The bill is meant to institute a simpler, fairer and more friendly system to help spur job creation.
Mayor Rodney Metz disagrees and says the city stands to lose thousands of dollars, if not more, in income tax revenue, which would force them to seek new forms of revenue from local residents.

Bridge plans OK'd

June 15, 2013

Plans were recently approved to replace two Auglaize County bridges this year.

The bridges span Six Mile Creek on Salem-Noble Road and the Miami and Erie Canal on Deep Cut Road.

Auglaize County Engineer Doug Reinhart said they plan to do as much work as they can with county crews to save on construction costs.

He said having bridge engineers in house to develop design plans and draft drawings saves the county money on these projects, as thousands could be spent just on consulting fees without them.
