Stricter standards being imposed by the Ohio EPA will force the village of Swanton to make upgrades at their water treatment plant. That information was reviewed by the Fulton County Commissioners this week, as the village moves forward with construction of a Granular Activated Carbon Treatment Process. Construction is expected to get underway in October, and cover the next nine months. Swanton will be receiving a grant for $628,000; along with a low interest loan for another $634,000. The remainder will be financed through existing village funds.
Fulton County Commissioners accepted the resignation of Michelle Meyers from the Job and Family Services office; and will be advertising for applicants to fill that position.
One bid was received for Fulton County’s contract for waste hauling, and that was from Allied Waste of Bryan. And two Napoleon companies submitted bids for the recycling phase of that waste hauling contract: Zach’s Recycling, and N&R&G Recycling. Those bids are all being reviewed by the Director of Public Utilities.
