Wondering if your well water is safe?  A good first step is to have your water tested at a certified lab, but lab test results are not always easy to interpret.  To help you out, OSU Extension has created this website to help drinking water well owners test, understand and protect their well water.

The Ohio State University in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Health and Ohio EPA has developed a well interpretation tool.  This tool provides interpretation of water test results you have received from a water testing laboratory.


Look for it under the Know Your Well Water Tab.

Bath, Copley and Fairlawn Police Departments are providing a voluntary courtesy service for persons hosting parties in their jurisdiction for graduating seniors.  Efforts will be made to provide additional partol to neighborhoods during events that are registered with the departments.  This service may assist in making sure our young people have a safe graduation season.  Officers will be checking for parking hazards, safety concerns, and community welfare.  Click here for registration information.

The Homestead Exemption is available to homeowners who are 65 years or older, or totally disabled under the age of 65. Under the exemption, property is taxed at $25,000 less than its appraised value. To qualify, you must be the owner of the home or manufactured home and it must be your primary residence on January 1 for the tax year you apply. Applicants may apply for Homestead Exemption in the year they turn 65 as long as they own and occupy the house as of January 1 of the year they file.

**Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE would like to inform property owners of an important change to the Homestead Exemption**

Due to the recent passage of Ohio House Bill 59, beginning January 1, 2014 new applicants will be subject to a means test. Eligible applicants must not have a total income over $30,500 per year, which includes the Ohio adjusted gross income of the owner and the owner's spouse. This will not affect homeowners currently enrolled in the Homestead Exemption or eligible applicants for 2013 who submit their application before Monday, June 2, 2014.
