Logan County Engineer Scott Coleman reported that the county has exhausted its salt contract for the year and has used a lot of the salt due to weather conditions that started in November. He explained that the highway department received its final 320 tons of salt recently. The county still has its salt and grit mixture. The county will be conservative with its salt application going forward focusing on intersections, curves, and hills. The county will continue to look for salt. They will ask their supplier for another allocation of salt as well as look for other suppliers.
Coleman comments on the salt supply.
Logan County Commissioner Dustin Wickersham stated that the commissioners have been receiving concerns from citizens about wind turbines. Wickersham explained that the commissioners do not have any authority to grant or deny wind turbines to be located in Logan County, but said the authority rest with the Ohio Power Siting Board. If someone has concerns with wind turbines they should contact the power siting board.
An update was given on the courthouse. Crews are waiting for warmer weather to pour concrete for the tower base. Meanwhile, the tower is being constructed off-site and should be in place by this summer or early autumn.
