SIDNEY — As students and parents have readied for the beginning of school, so has the Sidney-Shelby County Board of Health.
The board, who is responsible for testing the hearing of bus drivers among others, has acquired a new unit for that testing. The former unit was outdated and needed replaced.
Erica Lentz, RN, director, and the nursing staff have been holding more clinics, and more children have been immunized because of the added hours. Lentz has also been able to offer immunizations at the school, adding more opportunity.
In other business:
• David Aiken, 1644 E. State Route 29, Sidney, was granted a variance for a mound sewer, if it is feasible. If not, a leach bed will be needed.
• Mark Quinter, 5870 Fort Recovery Road, Houston was granted more time for compliance for water, and sewage on his property. Quinter was granted 30 days to come into compliance with all permits and zoning. If the time limit is not met, the property will be condemned. An additional 60 days was granted in order to have all construction completed. If not, the property will be condemned.
• Don Faulder, 18990 Meranda Road, Maplewood was denied a variance for construction of an enclosed patio and ramp less than 5 feet from the beginning of the leach bed.
• Resolution 18-2, changes in fee schedule, was read and approved. It will need to be published in the newspaper and read two more times in order to meet the requirements for passage.
