Columbus - 
State Senator Larry Obhof (R- Montville Township) announced he recently introduced Senate Bill 164, legislation that would permit a regional or county water and sewer district to convey water supply facilities to a municipality. Obhof introduced the bill after learning about a situation in his district where a county had reached a mutual agreement to convey a portion of its water and sewer infrastructure to a municipality, but could not do so because the water and sewer lines in question were not located within the municipality. "This bill will give local governments more flexibility when dealing with their water and sewer infrastructure," Obhof said. "It is another example of how the Legislature is working to give governments the ability to collaborate, which is more important than ever given the fiscal challenges many communities are facing." Senate Bill 164 will now be assigned to a Senate committee for further review.
