FOSTORIA - The city of Fostoria has filed petitions to annex land in Hancock and Seneca counties.
In petitions filed yesterday in Seneca County, the city requested annexation of 159 acres in Loudon Township. The annexation, if approved, would extend the city's border east along State Rt. 18 to include the Rollerland rink and the Wolf Creek apartment complex.
The city on Wednesday filed petitions in Hancock County to annex three houses on West Tiffin Street in Washington Township.
Safety-service director Ralph Wise said the city filed its petitions in advance of a state law that takes effect today. The law makes it more difficult for cities to annex land from neighboring townships.
