OTTOVILLE — Board of Public Affairs officers Dan Honigford and Phil Hilvers told council there was technology available from the phone company that would allow the village to dig up a tap and run a metal probe through the water lines on Auglaize Street to find the depths of the lines — which will initially save the village from tearing up the newly-reconstructed street — during Monday night’s Ottoville Village Council meeting.

At February’s meeting, council met with Miller Contracting representative and Josh Clay and Brian Goubeaux of Choice One Engineering and discussed the frozen water lines on Auglaize Street.

Prior to that regular council meeting, there was a special meeting where Miller reported that the majority of the houses on the east side of the street were being affected, noting there were eight or nine houses that had frozen water lines and the village started getting reports of frozen pipes the second week of January. Clay and Goubeaux explained that after the water system was installed, the excavation was back-filled with the compaction gravel and water was used to aid the process.

“The moisture in the stone back-fill has traveled down and deepened the frost line,” Clay said then.

Officials: Missing plane went down in Indian Ocean

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — After 17 days of desperation and doubt over the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, the country’s officials said an analysis of satellite data points to a “heartbreaking” conclusion: Flight 370 met its end in the southern reaches of the Indian Ocean, and none of those aboard survived.

The somber announcement late Monday by Prime Minister Najib Razak left unresolved many more troubling questions about what went wrong aboard the Boeing 777 to take it so far off-course.
