It’s looking more likely that a delay in construction of a new water treatment plant for Henry County is inevitable. Napoleon city manager Jon Bisher delivered that news to the Board of Public Affairs Monday night, saying there will be dialogue with the Army Corp of Engineers, and the Ohio EPA. Both are investigating whether a wetlands exists on the proposed site of the water plant along road 14-B north of the bypass in Napoleon. City manager Bisher reports that delay could push back the project by 6 months to a year.
The Napoleon Board of Public Affairs also recommended a full ‘cost of service’ study for electric rates. This will help Napoleon Council determine whether their method of determining rates from the cost of operating the system is on-track. Courtney and Associates of Findlay will conduct the study, which should take about 90 to 120 days.
