Whitehouse and Waterville Township are negotiating an agreement to provide water so Sautter Food Center can expand in the township.
Bob and Jim Sautter, owners of the grocery store on Waterville-Swanton Road, requested water service from the village. Lucas County officials must approve the water line extension, but said they would not approve it until the village and township worked out an agreement on the extension.
At a meeting last week, the township trustees authorized Walt Celley, the township solicitor, to move forward on negotiations with the village.
