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.

Ken Harsanje, Jr. was picked Monday night to fill the vacant Genoa Village Council seat.

Harsanje will likely be sworn in at the first meeting of September but nothing has been decided officially, said Village Administrator Kevin Gladden.
