The Village of Oak Harbor is relinquishing its rights to extend sewer lines to a landfill in Erie Township.

The move is being made on behalf of a request from the City of Port Clinton, which is looking to accept waste from the privately-owned Port Clinton Landfill, according to Randy Genzman, Oak Harbor’s interim administrator.

Currently, leachate, the liquid created by decomposing waste at the landfill on N. Camp Road, is hauled away by truck.

The passage of a bill requiring individuals who apply agricultural fertilizer to be certified is drawing praise from environmentalists and farm organizations.

Senate Bill 150 directs the Ohio Department of Agriculture to establish a fertilizer applicator certification program. The bills sponsors, Sen. Cliff Hite and Sen. Bob Peterson, say it is designed to address run-off problems from farm fields into waterways and they cited algae formations in Grand Lake St. Marys and Lake Erie as examples.

Members of the House of Representatives approved the bill Wednesday. It passed in the Senate earlier this year.

Sandusky County-Mental health board seeks levy for services

In Sandusky County, voters will again face a levy request by the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board on the May 6 primary ballot.

The board is seeking approval of a 0.8-mill, 5-year levy for operating expenses.

If passed, the levy will generate about $904,000 annually and cost the owner of a home valued at $100,000 about $2.30 a month.

That’s less than one specialty coffee, says Nancy Cochran, executive director of the board, adding the agency for about five years has been following a policy for allocating levy funding: 10 percent for board operations, 10 percent for emergency services, 20 percent for local initiatives and 60 percent for client services in the counties that already have levies.
