A dispute over the widening of a Putnam County Road will not be heard by the Ohio Supreme Court. The Putnam County Sentinel reports the court decided it would not accept an appeal from the county commissioners. The case was taken to the Supreme Court after an appeals court found the commissioners acted improperly in the widening of Road 5.
The case now goes back to the Putnam County Common Pleas Court. That means there could be hearings about damages. An attorney working for residents on Road 5 tells the newspaper the commissioners could be fined $500 for sunshine law violations.
