Ottawa officials say they’re on board with future flood-control measures for the village. Mayor Dean Meyer spoke to the Courier the day after a source told the newspaper Putnam County officials might pull out of the flood study. Meyer said Ottawa officials have asked the Putnam County Commissioners to support the Army Corps of Engineers plan. However, he said that if the commissioners didn’t, it’s not necessarily a deal breaker.
Meyer added he didn’t know how the commissioners could pull out of something they haven’t been a part of. So far Putnam County hasn’t paid any money for the flood studies. Ottawa officials say they’ll use state money to help pay for flood control projects in the village.
