Findlay, Ohio -
For the past five years, the Army Corps of Engineers has been working on flood mitigation efforts after floods put the city of Findlay underwater. On Tuesday, steps were made towards paying for work done. City council appropriated 1.8 million dollars for flood mitigation activities after Hancock County Commissioners sent the city an invoice after incurring more than 3.5 million dollars. Mayor Mihalik sees Tuesday night's efforts as another step in the right direction.
The 1.8 million dollar investment is part of a formally signed memorandum of understanding where the city of Findlay agreed to pay the county 600 thousand dollars a year for the next three years.
