Pandora council looking at $12,147 flow meter

Pandora council is considering purchase of a flow meter, estimated to cost $12,147 (plus $139 alignment fee), which is required by the Ohio EPA. The requirement is so that the village will be on a controlled discharge system. The matter was discussed at the Nov. 9 council meeting.

The flow meter will be installed in an existing manhole at the effluent site of the village lagoon system.

In other action, council approved the hiring of David Meyer as an as-needed assistant to Marvin Steiner with hydrant flushing.

Late mail causes problems for village utility department

The United States Postal Service's elimination of the Lima processing facility is causing problems with the Village of Bluffton.

Jamie Mehaffie, village administrator, told council on Nov. 22 that problems began when mail started going to Toledo instead of Lima for processing.

The specific problem centers on mail payments from customers paying online. Those payments, at no fault of the utility customers, are notoriously late from the online payment source.
