It looks like Columbus Grove will be on board when petitions are filed for the proposed Black Swamp Regional Water and Sewer District. The Putnam County Sentinel reports the matter was talked about during last week’s village council meeting. Members of the water and sewer district were on hand to answer council member’s questions.
Even if the village is a petitioner for the district, they aren’t required to join if it is formed.
Mayor Ken Wright expressed concerns that joining the district would kill the incentive for new industry to be annexed into the village to use the existing water system. County Commissioner John Love said the having the district would make it easier to get grants to deal with EPA compliance on a continuing basis.
The petition could be ready to file by July 1.
