A 900 kilowatt wind turbine at Clay High School that was shut down in May will be up and running next week.

Genoa treasurer frustrated by finding

A state audit determined that Genoa Local School District improperly contributed a small amount of money toward the retirement funds of three of its board of education members and asked for the cash to be returned.

Oregon City Council at a meeting earlier this month established the city as an Energy Special Improvement District (ESID).

In June, 2010, the Ohio Legislature passed a bill that allows for the establishment of ESIDs. Property owners within the district can pay for energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements on their properties by way of special assessments. The process is voluntary. Property owners are not required to participate.
