OU admin proposed deadbolt policy for off-campus housing
(2008-05-01)
(WOUB) - A number of break-ins recently has some Ohio University students worried.

They live off campus and are concerned about their door locks.

OU administrator Mike Hess says what's needed is for the owners to install dead-bolts.

"Sounds like as great idea" was the reaction from one member of Athens City Council and others seemed to feel the same way, although there was a question about how much it would cost.

Councilmember Debbie Phillips says making dead-bolts a requirement would not be hard.

Mayor Paul Wiehl was asked to discuss the proposal with his department heads and report back to Council.
