That quarter percent sales tax is set to go into effect in the county on July 1 and it doesn’t appear it will be knocked down by sales tax reform proposed by Gov. John Kasich.

At least three warm breakfasts a week are part of the new menu at the Ottawa County Jail since Chef’s Best began providing meal service for the inmates.

Chef’s Best Catering of Port Clinton started cooking June 1 for the prisoners at the Ottawa County Detention Facility located at the Ottawa County Courthouse and the misdemeanor jail at the county complex off Buckeye Boulevard.

Their contract specifies meals at $1.95 each and will be in effect for three years, Sheriff Steve Levorchick said.
