SUPCO Finds ODNR In Contempt

Dec 6, 2012

The Ohio Supreme Court has found the state Department of Natural Resources in contempt for defying a 2011 order to compensate 87 Mercer County landowners for flood damage.

The flooding resulted from of the widening of a spillway from Grand Lake Saint Marys. The justices held a hearing at the request of landowners who claimed the state was dragging its feet. The justices ordered the agency to file all appropriation cases within 4 months.
