Hearings scheduled for township-village splits

Staff Report

Fulton County Commissioners last Thursday scheduled public hearings for two county villages that requested formal separation from their associated townships, while the third village has tabled discussions on the issue.

A hearing for the proposed Archbold separation will be Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 7 p.m. The hearing for the proposed Delta separation will be Thursday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m. Both will be held in the second floor conference room of the Fulton County Administration Building, 152 S. Fulton St., in Wauseon.

The villages’ letters of petition to separate from the townships were received by the commissioners in August.

While the Village of Swanton initially joined the other villages in considering separation, its council members tabled discussions indefinitely in June after approving a first reading on the measure. The village has not sent a letter of petition to the county commissioners.
