I am writing to encourage my neighbors from the south end of town to attend the city council meeting at 7 p.m. Monday. Not only will we be supporting our fireman, medics and EMTs but it is my hope also that the subject of the condition of the canal can be addressed as was brought up by councilman Mark Clement at the last meeting.
I realize the canal is owned by the state of Ohio but I would love to know who we go to for help? The Department of Natural Resources? This is a huge part of Delphos history; the residents themselves simply cannot clear all the brush and help with water flow. We’ve raised our kids by the canal, they grew up fishing, catching frogs and snakes and feeding the ducks.
We have not been able to fish for the past few years. We can still feed the ducks but the poor things have to walk through mud and muck to get to the food.
We need help. This causes a huge problem with bugs and really smells most of the time. There are so many issues right now, we as residents of Delphos need to be there to voice our concerns if we want to make any positive changes!
