BUCKLAND â€” An environmental issue is pushing its way to the forefront in Buckland.
Buckland Village Council members agreed to schedule a public meeting to inform residents and answer questions concerning building a new centrally-tied sewer system in the village.
Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials have mandated that the small village begin plans to update the sewer system. Currently, each resident has independently-operated septic tanks.
The meeting has been set for 7:30 p.m. on June 28 at the Buckland community building where council meetings are now held.
The village of Cridersville will soon have a sign in front of the Cridersville Village Hall to display announcements and to keep village residents informed on events.
A local church, Westview United Methodist Church, in Cridersville, purchased a new outdoor sign for their church, and they gave the opportunity to the village of Cridersville to purchase their old sign for a low price of $50.
The cost for the village to purchase a new sign would be approximately $17,000, Mayor Lorali Myers said during Mondayâ€™s council meeting.
