New Muskingum watershed board?
(WOUB) - The Ohio House yesterday approved a bill creating a new nine-member board to oversee the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District.

The Columbud Dispatch reports that under the bill, board members from the 18-county district will be chosen by county commissioners.

They are currently appointed by county common pleas judges.

The House's decision comes two weeks after the board approved a 210 million dollar property tax for thousands of businesses and homeowners.
