Edgerton residents on Oak Street will be receiving an income survey that could help the town pay for storm sewer improvements. Village Administrator Dawn Fitzcharles made the announcement at the Village Council meeting April 17. The survey will be requesting information about Oak Street household gross annual income for 2016.
“We are requesting this information from residents within Oak Street, as we are seeking grant funding opportunities from state and federal agencies in pursuing storm sewer improvements on Oak Street between Farnham and River streets,” Fitzcharles said. “Your participation in this survey is imperative to support the application; without this information we cannot apply for these funds.”
The information residents provide will only be used to calculate the percentage of the population qualifying as low-to-moderate income (LMI) and to determine median household income (MHI), Fitzcharles said. All information obtained will be kept confidential. It is very important that all surveys are completed and returned in a timely manner to be eligible for this year’s application cycle, Fitzcharles said. “The village would like residents to complete and return their surveys as soon as possible,” Fitzcharles said. “Please mail the completed survey to the Maumee Valley Planning Organization in the enclosed postage paid envelope before Friday, April 28. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.”
The village would like to remind residents of the rules for yard waste pickup. Yard waste will be collected Mondays and Fridays village-wide. The waste must be placed into boxes, bags or barrels and then on the curb. Items that qualify as yard waste are grass clippings, leaves, branches, brush, weeds and bushes (with the roots removed). Animal waste is strictly prohibited. Questions can be directed to the Street Department at 419-298-1300.
