Wapakoneta Mayor Tom Stinebaugh spoke of current and future projects to the city during the State of the City, County and Schools Thursday.

One project Stinebaugh spoke of was Golden Fresh Farms, the new greenhouse facility coming to town. Ground was broken earlier this week and soon the company will be putting in their first 20 acre greenhouse, the first hopefully of eight greenhouse projects, he said.

In his State of the County report, Auglaize County Commissioner Don Regula spoke of some of the 2015 projects they completed. These included the renovation of the powerhouse near the courthouse, work on the Law Enforcement Center sewer line and sealing and striping the pavement at the Neil Armstrong Airport.

In his State of the Schools report, Superintendent Keith Horner spoke of the expansion of the STEM program, which was started up last school year. Seventh-graders will now take STEM classes, in addition to eighth-graders. The seventh-graders will be doing design projects and the eighth-graders will be doing robotics projects, all of which are engineering based, he said.
