Butler Fiscal Court wants to install a paddle wheel on the Rochester Ferry.
Judge-Executive Tim Flener said fiscal court sent out requests for bids on installing a paddle wheel, which has proven effective on Reeds Ferry.
Flener said there’s nothing wrong with Rochester Ferry, and that “this is for improvement. Just kind of maintenance and upkeep.”
While the cost of installing the wheel is uncertain at this point, Flener said it will be paid for with a line item in the county’s budget dedicated to the ferries.
