Pursuant to Chapter 6117 of the Ohio Revised Code, notice is hereby given that endorsements of and/or objections to the construction of said improvements, the location, and the estimates of cost and financing, and tentative assessments thereof, all described in said Resolution, will be heard by the Board of County Commissioners at 11:00 A.M. Local Time on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, in the Session Room of the Office of the Board of County Commissioners, 101 East Main Street, Batavia, Ohio 45103.  At such time and place, a public hearing will be granted by such Board of County Commissioners to all interested parties.
