Findlay Rotary Club Learns More About Flood Reduction Efforts

10/31/17 – 5:00 A.M.

Findlay Rotary Club members heard more about flood-control measures in Hancock County during their Monday meeting. The Courier reports County Commissioner Brian Robertson talked about the efforts to find common ground on the issue. He added the commissioners voted to remove a proposed sales tax levy after agricultural and business interests began talking about items they could agree on.

In the meantime, Stantec Engineering is set to begin flood reduction measures in Findlay in 2018. The project includes removing riffle structures and digging benches into the banks of the river in the city. Stantec says the work will reduce the 100-year-flood by a foot in downtown.
