Wood County official to meet with panel about lawsuit

BOWLING GREEN Assistant Wood County Prosecutor Linda Holmes is scheduled to meet with the county planning commission next week to invite the commission to be part of litigation she plans to file against the city of Perrsyburg for enforcing its zoning regulations outside the city limits.

The planning commission meets at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the County Office Building.

Early in the month, Ms. Holmes and Perrysburg Township Trustee Craig LaHote told county commissioners the dispute between the city and township was headed to court. Ms. Holmes said she wants a judge to determine whether the city can legally require a developer to meet the city s more extensive zoning requirements to get water and sewer services to a site in the township.

She said both the county engineer, who regulates road and storm sewer construction, and the county planning commission, which enforces standards for subdivisions in unincorporated areas, could be parties to the litigation.
