ARLINGTON — A Findlay firm will replace waterlines in a portion of Arlington, Village Council decided Monday.
JDR Excavating was awarded a contract to replace waterlines along part of Main Cross Street and in the Sunset addition vicinity for $204,531.
The job is expected to be undertaken this summer.
In other matters, council raised sewer rates, effective next month.
The new law will have customers pay a flat rate of $15.70 for each two-month billing cycle. Residents also will pay $3.40 for every 1,000 gallons of water used.
The current schedule has residents paying $15.70 for the first 1,000 gallons each billing cycle, and $2.80 for each additional 1,000 gallons.
Rates were last raised in 2006.
In other fiscal affairs, council will obtain information from the Hancock County Auditor’s Office about placing a levy on the fall ballot to help buy fire equipment.
In other business, council:
• Heard that 79 tons of unwanted materials were collected during the annual spring curbside trash pickup in the village, compared to 77 tons two years ago and 112 tons three years ago.
• Said the new community swimming pool hours on Sunday will be from noon to 8 p.m.
• Is still collecting information for insurance purposes about recent vandalism at the village park. New locks will be added to concession stands.
