Fulton County and the city of Wauseon are now linked in providing sanitary sewer service to Dover Township.
The board approved a contract April 18 allowing the county to discharge sewage from the Airport Sewer into the city’s system. The county is limited to 5,000 gallons a day.
The county will be responsible for the maintenance of the sewer, while Wauseon will bill customers at the same rate as the city’s current customers. The contract’s term is 10 years.
Wauseon Public Sewer Director Dennis Richardson stated in a memo to the board the city wholeheartedly endorses the pact.
