Butler County election officials held a recount Friday of a $65 million tax levy and bond issue for Middletown schools and the results remained the same - the issue passed by 22 votes out of about 5,900 cast.
Monday, Hamilton County Board of election officials will conduct a recount on a $2 million Colerain Township police levy that passed in the official count by 11 votes.
Automatic recounts are required when the results of a candidate race or ballot issue are within one half of one percent.
The Ohio EPA is holding a public hearing Tuesday night on Rumpke's request to increase the amount of odor neutralizer being used at its Colerain Township site. The new permit would allow the company to use up to 2,741 gallons of the neutralizer mixed with more than 2.7 million gallons of water monthly.
The deodorizer is made from essential plant oils, mainly from fruits and vegetables. It's applied using 200 spray nozzles attached to more than 6,100 feet of hose, 20 industrial fans and mobile spray dispensers
