PHOTO FINISH- Perry County commissioners (left to right) Thad Cooperrider, Lonnie Wood, and Fred Shriner sign water and sewer contracts July 13 with Thornville Village Council President Kevin Howell and (not pictured) Thornville Mayor Beth Patrick and Thornville Village Administrator Ron Koehler. Agreement on the sewer contract in particular comes after more than two years of negotiations between Thornville and Perry County to serve customers along Buckeye Lake's South Bank, mainly along Honey Creek Road. Perry County is currently installing the collection system along the South Bank, which, per the contract, will soon connect to Thornville's sewer plant. "We've got ourselves a deal," said Patrick following the signing. Beacon photo by Scott Rawdon. 024p1_xlg.jpg
