LEVEL 1 SNOW ADVISORY ISSUED

     At 07:15 am, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office issued a level one snow advisory for Marion County. Some roadways have been plowed but many secondary roadways are still snow covered.  As snow falls throughout the day the roads will be snow covered and drifting might occur. Crews from ODOT, the Marion county garage and Marion city will be treating the roads throughout the day. Be alert for vehicles going into ditches and medians and vehicles traveling slowly. Keep a safe distance from other vehicles and drive slowly.  If possible, limit travel and only be on the roadways only if necessary.

MARION COUNTY HAS NO ANIMAL HUMANE AGENT

We understand there has been some confusion within the community in regards to a Humane Agent. The Marion Area Humane Society no longer employs a Humane Agent to check the welfare of animals or handle animal abuse investigations. Under Ohio law the Marion County Dog Warden is only permitted to handle stray dogs and dog bite calls and are not permitted to handle animal abuse or animal humane investigations without a contract in place. Should the welfare of an animal be in question you can contact the law enforcement agency that services the location of the animal but understand law enforcement calls will take priority first. Any question regarding a Humane Agent please contact the Marion Area Humane Society or the Marion County Commissioners.
