During this year’s Litter Roundup, 153 miles of Henry County were cleaned by 507 individuals.

Henry County Landfill Manager/Solid Waste Coordinator Mike Imbrock reported the figures to the Henry County commissioners Tuesday during a monthly update. It was reported, despite the wet weather, volunteers collected 2.34 tons of litter, along with 26 tires and one mattress.

The top two recyclers were the Okolona Buckeyes and the Henry County Sharpshooters. Each group will receive a $20 bonus from the Henry County Solid Waste District.

Imbrock also reported the transfer facility accepted 180.57 tons of solid waste, 75.28 tons of tires and 3.82 tons of brick/concrete/asphalt during May.

In other matters, the commissioners met with Kelly Lowry of CompManagement and reviewed Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC) figures.

The county received $45,345.55 back from the County Commissioners Association of Ohio Group Retrospective Rating Program as of Dec. 31. Gov. Mike DeWine and the BWC have proposed a $1.5 billion rebate, and it’s estimated that Henry County would receive $93,174. The BWC premiums due by Henry County will be $129,892.

In other matters, the commissioners met with Justin Niese of the Henry County Engineer’s Office regarding County Road Z.

Plans for the construction were signed by the commissioners. The projected completion date is Oct. 15, depending on weather.

The agenda for Thursday includes an executive session regarding the compensation of personnel at 9 a.m.
