The Hancock County Commissioners agreed to reimburse the Maumee Watershed Conservancy District for administrative costs related to the flood-reduction efforts. During a Thursday meeting, the commissioners approved an estimated $90,000 to cover the costs for 2019. They approved $80,000 last year but only had to pay about $61,200.

The commissioners approved a higher estimate for the incoming year for additional engineering work anticipated for the flood-reduction planning.

The commissioners also approved a $130,000 contract with the Lucas County Coroner’s Office for autopsy services in 2019.
