The long brutal winter is finally well behind us, but the city of Findlay is still feeling some of the effects. The Courier reports the harsh weather cost the city government more than $130,000 for extra utility costs, vehicle repairs, and overtime. The Public Works Department took on the majority of the extra expenses with driver overtime.
