Funds needed for park bathhouse

Genoa officials continue to search for funding to fix the bathhouse at Veterans Park.

The building was closed to the public last year after an Ottawa County Health Department inspection.

“They weren’t able to use the running water consistently,” Village Administrator Kevin Gladden said.

The problem is the aging half-inch galvanized water line serving the 60-foot by 20-foot building isn’t dependable any longer, he explained.

Quarry swimmers use the bathhouse to change clothes and to wash off.

There are no bathrooms located within the bathhouse.

Village leaders renovated the nearby bathroom facilities about two years ago, Gladden said.

They, however, are still looking for funding to help update the bathhouse.

Gladden is working with Poggemeyer Design Group of Bowling Green to research possible funding options to present to council.

“We’re hoping to find some state funding. It’s a project that has been on the landscape for several years,” Gladden said.


New lights for Route 51
The village has updated one of its major intersections with new lights.

Motorists traveling through the intersection of State Route 51 and Main Street endured temporary detours last week as crews installed new traffic beacons.

Late Wednesday afternoon, Genoa Police Chief Robert Bratton was in the intersection directing traffic while beacons were not operational.

In all, the village replaced 11 lights for a cost of about $9,900, said Village Administrator Kevin Gladden. The money came from the capital improvement fund.

The former lights were more than 30 years old and had reoccurring problems, he said.

The new fixtures installed by US Utility of Perrysburg have black polycarbonate bodies and LED lights.

“They’re sweet,” Gladden said as he watched over some of the final installation work Wednesday afternoon. “I never thought I’d get this excited about traffic lights.”

Most of the installation occurred Tuesday and Wednesday.
