        Voters were agreeable to increasing their taxes in Lake Township and the Genoa Area School District but were less generous in other jurisdictions in last week’s election.

        According to unofficial results, a 0.5-mill, 5-year property tax was levy approved by voters in the Genoa district: 1,080 for to 1,034 against.

       At least one waste stream from the clean-up project at the former Brush Beryllium plant site near the Village of Luckey won’t be disposed at the Evergreen landfill in Northwood

        In a project update, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it would not dispose of soils from the plant site at the landfill, which is operated by Waste Management.

        The City of Toledo is establishing a policy on finding owners of dead pets collected in the streets after the city failed to contact the owner of a dog with tags that was hit and killed by a car last July.

         Carlos, an 11-year-old red Chihuahua, had an up-to-date license, rabies, and ID tags attached to its collar, but city workers who collected the deceased dog soon after it was hit never called owner Julia Hatfield to inform her of the dog’s death. Instead, Carlos was thrown in a common dump like other dead animals found in the road.

        Carlos had gotten out of its yard on Camden Street in East Toledo while Julia and her husband, Allen, went out for the evening on July 22. After returning home a couple of hours later, they started searching for the dog when they realized it was gone. 

        A public forum featuring a panel discussion about the opioid epidemic drew about 100 people to the auditorium at the Northwood Schools, Arts, Athletics and Administration Building on Lemoyne Road on Oct. 26 to hear about drug addiction that is destroying lives across the country.

        The panel included representatives from Bay Park Hospital, law enforcement, first responders, a recovering addict, and a couple who lost their son to an overdose.

        A common theme throughout the discussion was the significance of raising public awareness and removing the stigma associated with heroin addiction.

        Carroll Township in Ottawa County is assured of new faces on its board of trustees in 2018 with no incumbents on the ballot in Tuesday’s election.
