The Henry County Commissioners had been entertaining thoughts of joining with the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority to enhance their chances of attracting economic development. But HenryCounty was already part of a Northwest Ohio Port Authority, in conjunction with Defiance, Paulding, and FultonCounties. After dialogue with both sides, the HenryCounty board has decided it is in the best interest of HenryCounty to continue with the Northwest Ohio group of rural counties, with some modifications to the agreement. This port authority of rural Ohio counties is also able to attract dollars to help companies looking to expand.
A request has been filed with Henry County Commissioners, to vacate a portion of right-of-way along county road L. The request was submitted by KBK Land Partnership LLC, and Eldon Huber. A viewing date of the parcel in-question was set for September 16th. Commissioners have also requested a recommendation from the HenryCounty engineer in this matter.
And the HenryCounty board is still working on their plans to install a new chiller to help with air conditioning in the courthouse. They are discussing that plan with Dunbar Mechanical for the installation after the summer cooling season.
