Ever since the mid 1990’s Liberty Center has followed the state guidelines for local residential building inspections. But enforcement of those inspection regulations has been the topic of discussion in recent weeks, as LibertyCenter council was considering a contract with WoodCounty to handle those duties. About a dozen residents in the village did not want to see WoodCounty take-over that inspection, like they do for commercial buildings. But there don’t appear to be any viable options locally; since HenryCounty and the village of Liberty Center do not have an enforcement section, to assure residents are protected when dwellings go up. Those inspections would ensure a home has been constructed properly, and meets state guidelines in mechanical, electric, and plumbing.
Liberty Center Council is waiting on more information from Napoleon regarding the proposed new water treatment plant; before they can make a decision. Another meeting with Napoleon officials is scheduled next week; which will lead-into a public information session for LibertyCenter residents on the topic of a water supply. That session is scheduled for April 16th at the Liberty-WashingtonTownship fire station.
And representatives will be assisting LibertyCenter residents with their local income tax filings next Thursday, April 11th at the municipal building, from 3 till .
