The commissioners of Ottawa, Wood, and Sandusky counties have agreed to hold the first hearing on a joint improvement project for Packer Creek on April 16.
The commissioners will meet at 10 a.m. at the Wood County commissioners’ office and then recess the meeting and reconvene at the Wood County Fairgrounds at 10:30 a.m.
There, they will hear a report by the Wood County engineer’s office on the project and accept public comment.
Residents within the Packer Creek watershed have been sent notices of a petition being filed with the clerk of the Wood County seeking improvements to the creek.
A public viewing of the scope of the project was held March 7 at the Wood County commissioners’ office.
The petition states that “the construction of said improvement is necessary and will be conducive to the public welfare.”
If the commissioners authorize the proposed improvements, costs for engineering, construction, and future maintenance will be assessed to the land parcels that benefit from the improvements.
Packer Creek’s watershed begins at a catch basin on the south side of Sugar Ridge Road in Wood County and covers terrain to the north-east to the intersection of Fostoria Road and State Rt. 163. From there it sits along Rt. 163 through the Village of Genoa and continues to State Rt. 590.
Amendments to the petition or written comments may be submitted to the clerk of the Wood County commissioners, One Courthouse Square, Bowling Green, 43402.

LaCarpe Creek hearing
The Ottawa County commissioners will hold a hearing April 23 at 9 a.m. to discuss proposed changes to the permanent assessment base for the LaCarpe Creek (Harmon Ditch).
If approved, the changes which have been recommended by the county engineer’s office, would go into effect May 23.
The hearing will be held at the commissioners’ assembly room at the county courthouse, 315 Madison St., Port Clinton.
