District awards McComb regional waterline connection

The Northwestern Water and Sewer District is one step closer to building a new waterline that will supply water to McComb from North Baltimore.

On Sept. 22, the district board of trustees approved the award for two project contracts valued at approximately $6 million to Hillabrand & Sons Construction LCC of Woodville. An additional portion of the project was awarded to B. Hill’z Excavating Inc. of Wayne for $500,000.

Construction is expected to begin in the spring and be complete by early 2024. Work will consist of three projects installing over 9 miles of new waterline. It also will ensure water quality and quantity with a larger water supply, larger water plant capacity and a larger reservoir storage capacity.

“This project will continue to provide a quality water supply and long-term affordability by eliminating the high maintenance and operating costs of the current water treatment plant in McComb,” said District Engineer Tom Stalter.

Funding for the project will be through a $3.3 million United States Department of Agriculture loan in addition to a $1.5 million USDA grant. Additionally, the District secured a $2 million grant from the Ohio Department of Development.

Perrysburg Council to hear plans to make downtown ADA compliant

PERRYSBURG — Council will be learning more about plans to make the downtown right-of-way ADA compliant. Fishbeck, the firm that is assisting the city’s engineering department, will present two design options to city council members on Oct. 10 at 5:30 p.m. in council chambers.

This is an information session; no public comments will be taken, but the public is invited to listen and learn more about the plan.

The city began looking at making the city’s right-of-way in the first two blocks of Louisiana Avenue ADA compliant back in 2019 and worked with the Ability Center of Greater Toledo and consultants to determine what changes needed to be made. The design options have been shared with downtown businesses and building owners.

Plans to move this project forward were delayed due to COVID-19, but the city recently engaged Fishbeck to review information and provide two designs that would make the city right-of-way ADA compliant. The firm now has two design options that have various differences. The city met with businesses and building owners in August to go over both options.
