Possible New Housing Project in Athens
(2008-06-24)
(WOUB) - Local businessman Brett Hayes is considering a new housing project off State Route 56 just west of Athens.

Engineer Michael McElvoy talked about the project last night with members of Athens City Council.

McElvoy asked councilmembers for their initial thoughts about the project and the idea of providing it with sewer services.

Water would be supplied by the Leax Water District and one councilmember questioned extending one service but not the other.

Councilmember Debbie Phillips wondered about the need for a development agreement.

Athens Mayor Paul Wiehl was asked to look into these issues and provide council with a report.
