Water quality report open for public comment
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency is accepting comment until June 11 on a draft report of  the water quality in tributary streams to the Maumee River and Lake Erie.

A bill that would consolidate the Sandusky County Courts of Clyde and Woodville into a single municipal court has received committee approval and will go to the full Ohio House of Representatives for a vote.
 
State Representative Rex Damschroder (R- Fremont) introduced House Bill 433 in January.
 
“By consolidating the two part-time courts in Sandusky County into one single court, Sandusky County will save taxpayer dollars in their budget,” Damschroder said.
 
Warren Brown, county administrator, testified before the House Local Government Committee the consolidation is feasible.
 
Both courts, under consolidation, would continue in their locales, he said, but the two part-time judgeships would be combined into one full-time position.

Call it a "shotgun wedding."
