Since its inception over 30 years ago, the Log Cabin Compound inside the Sandusky County Fairgrounds has been a "work in progress" for the visionaries as well as fairgoers.  The 2011 Sandusky County Fair saw the debut of the latest addition to the compound — a combination church and school house building.

Oregon City Council recently raised concerns about the unappealing appearance of Kmart, and a nearby rusted outbuilding, on Navarre Avenue.

At a meeting last month, Councilman Dennis Walendzak said he drove past Kmart on a Saturday and thought the number of trucks parked in the store’s parking lot made the site look like a truck stop.

Power outages in the Oregon police dispatch center spurred the city to purchase a new uninterruptable power supply system to prevent future occurrences.

The new supply system was purchased from Micro Works, Inc., Oregon, for $19,000.

Emergency telephone notification service for Lake Township residents will continue uninterrupted even though One Call Now, which had a contract with the township, has been purchased by Emergency Communications Network, an Ormond Beach, Florida company, township officials said.

The township trustees approved a one-year contract extension Tuesday with ECN for $4,321 to provide the notification service.

Oregon City Council, after months of discussion, finally ordered sidewalks along a section of Navarre Avenue between Coy and Lallendorf roads to improve safety.

A group of disabled residents, many in wheelchairs, demonstrated last year on Navarre Avenue to raise awareness of their plight to get to nearby shops in the area.
