The Village of Buckland is in the beginning of installing sewer lines.
The Village Council met Thursday to discuss a letter being sent to residents concerning the new line.
The village received approximately $1.5 million in grants, plus another $1 million grant to help low-income property owners cut into the new system.
A meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. April 17 at the Buckland Community Center to discuss how low-income families can use the grant. Residents must apply to be considered for the grant.

With his 18th birthday a little over a month away, Wapakoneta High School junior, Lucas Lightle plans to have his Eagle Scout volunteer project completed by the end of March.
Lightle explained that you have to get your Eagle Scout before you turn 18, but there is a bit of leeway with paperwork.
“I turn 18 on April 24,” Lightle said. “I’l be finishing my project by the end of the month, and you send your paperwork in and that could take three months, but they give you three months after you turn 18 to send in your paperwork.”
Wapakoneta resident Brett Eley has announced that he will be running for Ohio State Representative for the 82nd district as a Republican candidate and will challenge incumbent Tony Burkley (R-Paulding) in the primary election of the Ohio General Assembly on May 6.
The 82nd district is made up Van Wert, Paulding and Defiance counties, along with a part of Auglaize County that includes Wapakoneta.
