Findlay Council OKs downtown grant application, Lye Creek project

Findlay City Council unanimously agreed Tuesday to allow administrators to apply for a grant that would help pay for downtown traffic and safety improvements.

It also consented to a controversial Lye Creek project, which will also be paid for with grant money. It will return a portion of the creek’s west bank near the Blanchard River to its natural habitat.

The traffic-related vote was approved by emergency measure, which means it takes immediate effect and can’t be overturned by the public.

Administrators now have until May 4 to submit a grant application to the Ohio Department of Transportation. Recipients of the competitive awards will be notified in August, the state has said.

Courier reporter Joy Brown will have more on Wednesday.
