Deputies WILL NOT accompany land surveyors

We have been notified that representatives from the proposed NEXUS natural gas project will be in our area starting next week.

In some Ohio counties NEXUS has hired off duty deputies/officers to accompany them as they visit property owners. Please take note that our deputies WILL NOT be accompanying land surveyors doing work for its proposed pipeline project.

If you do not wish for NEXUS survey crews to be on your property simply ask them to leave. If they do not do so, contact our office.

As always, our goals are to protect the rights of the citizens of Wayne County and we will not allow our deputies to be used by private industry to intimidate those we are sworn to serve.
