LIBERTY CENTER COUNCIL TALKS SPEED LIMITS, WATER SUPPLY
Speed limits, health care costs, and water were all part of the dialogue for the Liberty Center village Council Tuesday night. Council is looking to get approval from the state in expanding the 25 mile-per-hour zone on East Street, heading north from the downtown, in a move to enhance traffic safety.
Liberty Center council was informed, the affordable health care act could cause their health insurance costs for the village to go-up by 17% for next year. Some communities may not be able to offer health insurance to employees if those increases continue.
The aeration station that was ordered by the EPA to improve the quality of water in the Liberty Center distribution system has arrived. Council had protested this was no longer needed, if the village joins Napoleon in their water plant project. But the EPA still forced Liberty Center to make the purchase. The unit is moveable, so it may be utilized where the most problems with water quality occur.
And the village of Liberty Center is trying to inventory all the street lights in town, as part of a dispute with Toledo Edison concerning electric service to those lights. As part of an agreement when Liberty Center sold their municipal power company to Toledo Edison, there was a promise to provide power for community street lights.
