        A proposal to develop a walking trail along a portion of Riverbend Park in Elmore has been tabled by village council.

        Council voted Monday to table the proposal which had been discussed earlier by the planning and environment, properties committee.

        Spending cuts adopted earlier this summer by the Benton-Carroll-Salem administration will help pay for the school district’s share of a resource officer, Guy Parmigian, district superintendent, said last week.

        The B-C-S school board and Village of Oak Harbor have been meeting to discuss sharing costs of a new school resource officer who would be hired through the village police department, Parmigian said.

Friends and associates of Jerusalem Township Trustee Joe Kiss, who died suddenly last Wednesday, remembered him as a giving person who liked helping people in the community.

        Oregon's senior levy is up for renewal in November. 

        On Nov. 5, 2013, voters approved a .5 mill levy for the years 2014-2018. Collections began in 2014 and will continue through 2018. The levy was passed for the purpose of providing additional funds for senior services in the city.

        “We believe we have put that money to good use,” said Mayor Mike Seferian at a committee of the whole meeting last week. “There’s a demand for services for the senior center and we believe the public will support that.”
