The Putnam County Commissioners will likely delay some projects so they can pay for more than $611,000 in legal fees related to the Road 5 widening case. Commissioner John Love tells the Lima News he doesn’t believe operations and services will take a hit.
One example of a delayed project will happen next to the Putnam County Fairgrounds. The former Weather Seal facility slated to become part of the fairgrounds will not be repaired this year. It needs roof and electrical upgrades.
The county has been ordered to pay legal fees for property owners along Road 5. Officials were found to be in violation of open meeting laws in connection to the road widening project.
