Birth, death certificates get pricier in Wood County

BOWLING GREEN — The cost of getting a certified copy of a birth or death certificate will go up by $4 next month.

Fees at the Wood County Health Department will increase to $23 per copy effective Oct. 16. The health department retains $9.50 of the fee, while $9 goes to the Ohio Department of Health, $3 goes to the Ohio Children's Trust Fund at the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, and $1.50 goes to the Ohio Family Violence Prevention Fund at the Ohio Department of Public Safety.

Health officials said the higher fee reflects an increase in the state minimum fee for vital statistics records to enhance and maintain a secure system that meets U.S. requirements.
