Findlay City Council will take its time in discussing the “riparian corridor” for a part of Lye Creek in Findlay. Last night council gave first reading to an ordinance that would allow the city accept an EPA grant to pay for the project. The corridor would allow land along the corridor to return to a more natural state.
Those in favor of the project say it would improve water quality in the creek. People who live in the area have signed a petition against the project.

Council will address the ordinance again at their next meeting.Read More →
