        Oregon will be seeking requests for proposals for downtown development.

        City council last year passed a resolution in support of designating a zoning overlay as the first step in creating a downtown area that contains retail, residential, an entertainment district, and open green space along Navarre Avenue,. The overlay district covers three areas bordered by Isaac Streets Drive, Navarre Avenue, Coy Road, Dustin Road, and Pickle Road, an area that totals 167 acres.

        “We are in the final stages of property acquisition,” City Administrator Mike Beazley said at a council meeting on Monday.

        A six-year-old girl is recovering after being shot by her brother.

        Oregon police responded to a report of a juvenile being shot at 224 Van Buren St. at 5:56 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 13. Upon arrival, police found the six-year-old girl had been shot in the arm. It was determined that the girl’s seven-year-old brother had accidentally shot her after finding the firearm in a dresser drawer.

       Saying it’s a necessary but unwelcome step, FirstEnergy Solutions last week filed its plans with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for retraining fuel handlers as part of the process for deactivating the company’s three nuclear power plants.

        Last week’s decision by the Ohio Department of Medicaid requiring its five managed care plans to terminate contracts with pharmacy benefits managers using a “spread pricing” model is long overdue, said State Representative Teresa Fedor, D-Toledo, who contends millions of Ohioans have been affected financially by “big-pharma middlemen.”

        Ottawa County Probate Judge Kathleen Giesler is accepting letters of interest from residents who want to serve on the Park District of Ottawa County as a commissioner.

        Letters should be submitted to the probate court no later than Aug. 28. The court is located at 315 Madison St., Port Clinton.

        The person appointed will fill the unexpired term created by a recent vacancy.

        The park district was created in 1972 for the development, operation, acquisition and maintenance of park and recreation facilities.
