The Fulton County Commissioners spent a good deal of their Thursday session discussing the potential creation of a building permit section in county government. The county would run the office; but contract the work through WoodCounty, which already handles many counties in the region. The FultonCounty board felt the real need was for inspections on commercial buildings; and they passed a resolution unanimously to create their own building inspection department.
Commissioners also passed a resolution seeking bids for a seal coat project for FultonCounty roads, and they are seeking proposals for the contract to waterproof and resurface FultonCounty bridges.
The FultonCounty9-1-1 system was being evaluated for a potential overload situation Thursday, with Toledo Edison and a private contractor working on the issue.
