Carey hoping to buy recycling containers

CAREY — The Wyandot County Solid Waste District will submit grant applications to purchase two containers for a drop-off recycling area in Carey.
The two containers cost about $8,600 and would be placed near the Carey Senior Depot on East Findlay Street, said village Administrator Roy Johnson during village’s council’s regular meeting this week.
The area would be available for residents who do not want to wait for the village’s curbside recycling, which normally operates Monday through Wednesday.
Grants will be sought through the state Department of Natural Resources and state Environmental Protection Agency.
Separately, council approved the purchase of a 2014 Ford Explorer from Wagner Ford, Carey, through the state purchasing program. The cost is about $26,400. The vehicle should arrive by the end of April or in early May, he said.
Also, council approved the annexation of a small section of land, part of a former nursing home property. The business was closed and the building was demolished. It is part of the industrial park property being developed by Vaughn Industries along East Findlay Street and Elm Hill Road.
Council also approved an emergency ordinance to allow the state Department of Transportation to contract for inspection of three bridges on U.S. 23/Ohio 103 within the village. There is no cost the village.
Also, council approved $500 donation to the American Red Cross Wyandot County Chapter for its “Boots and Badges” campaign. The organization’s annual banquet will be held March 4 in Sycamore.
Separately, Teresa Jacoby was named park manager for the summer. She had been assistant park manager, but Eric Mullholand resigned the manager’s position which he held for about 15 years.
Also, village officials urged residents to leave a small stream of water running when the temperatures drop again next week. Evening temperatures are expected to be in the low teens.
Waterline breaks caused by cold temperatures and older waterlines have kept village employees busy this year.
