Oregon is seeking $1.3 million from the Ohio EPA’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund for construction of the Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation project.

The project, done in four phases, will ensure structural integrity of the existing sewers and remove groundwater infiltration from the sewer collection system.

The project is located in the Ketcham’s Farms and East Hollywood subdivisions. It is required by the city’s wastewater treatment plant’s NPDES permit. It consists of the rehabilitation of the sanitary sewer mainlines, laterals and manholes. The sewers were constructed in 1924 of vitrified clay pipe.

Al Thompson left Northwest Ohio on August 17 on a bicycle ride around the perimeter of the United States in an effort to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity and Save the Children.

Hello Folks -

I’m taking a rest day in Globe, AZ, after a very long 80 mile day from Safford. More on that momentarily.

Have you ever picked up your phone to find an aggressive voice on the other end demanding payments on a debt you know nothing about? You’re far from alone.

Once you’re in the sights of a debt collector, the impact on your life can be devastating: Your wages can be garnished and your credit ruined. You might lose your driver’s license, or even your job.

And it could happen over a debt you don’t even owe.

In a recent analysis of 75,000 complaints about debt collection practices submitted to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau — just a sample of the total number — this was the most common complaint by far. Over 40 percent of people being harassed by collectors said they didn’t owe the debt in the first place.

Newly elected District 3 councilman Peter J. Ujvagi admits he is in the same boat as everyone else in East Toledo — he owns a house appraised at $50,000, but would be lucky to sell it for $20,000.

Ujvagi may have just been elected last November and taken office in January, but his service in the public sector dates back to 1973, including four previous terms on Toledo city council. He says he has lived in the Birmingham neighborhood with wife Elizabeth Marie for 58 years and is a hard-line east sider who plans to stay.

At the East Toledo Senior Center in Navarre Park Wednesday night, Ujvagi hosted his first town hall meeting since rejoining council. Hosted by One Voice for East Toledo, it attracted over 50 residents who had plenty to say about home values, crime, safety, the condition of streets, and other aspects of their lives living in a neighborhood in decline.
