Rains blasts council for grilling mayor

April 22, 2014

Wapakoneta’s Safety-Service Director Bill Rains blazing defense of Mayor Rodney Metz overshadowed Monday’s council meeting.

According to Metz, the focus of the meeting was to be on resolving a letter of support for one of two projects involving senior housing. Apparently the city gave its blessing — in terms of resolutions of support — for the Wapakoneta Village and a project adjacent to the Lincoln Estates subdivision. The resolution was made so the two developments could gain points in an application process with the Ohio Housing Finance Authority.

Little did anyone know that was a no-no. Apparently, you can only endorse one.

Metz only found out about the error Wednesday.

But Rains’ report centered on how the mayor was treated at the previous council meeting April 7, at which Rains was absent.

At that meeting, Metz was asked about the West Auglaize Street sewer project and the easements required for completion.

“In my absence, there were a lot of questions at the last council meeting that the mayor tried to field as best he could,” Rains said. “Unfortunately, he didn’t have a lot of the answers I had.”
