Owens Community College is expanding its reach to area law enforcement agencies by renovating its emergency services training program facilities with their input.

The restructuring will allow local agencies to train at the Oregon Road site in Perrysburg Township at significantly lower prices, making the program more accessible to more communities.

The Northwood Police Department is hoping residents will reorganize and restore the city’s blockwatch program, which has been dormant for the last several years.

“We had one years ago in 1998,” said Police Chief Tom Cairl. “It kind of fizzled out, mostly because people are so busy and don’t have time to participate. The blockwatch is run by residents. The police department helps facilitate the actual meetings.”

The Oregon school board will hold a special board meeting on Monday, December 3, at 7 pm. to formally lay out the final plans for the district’s proposed reconfiguration of Eisenhower and Fassett middle schools.

The board has been looking at the possible reconfiguration since June.

Tireman Auto Service Centers will be following the lead of its former owner, The Andersons, Inc., by leaving its Woodville Mall location by next year, The Press has learned.

According to Randy Jones, president and CEO of Tireman, the Toledo-based company decided that the deteriorating conditions of the mall coupled with the crumbling condition of the parking lot no longer fit in with the company’s image.

Oregon City Council last week approved a special use permit for Verizon Wireless to build a cell phone tower on city property behind the water treatment plant at 951 North Curtice Road.

The company had originally wanted to locate the tower on city owned property on Cedar Point Road, but its request for a setback variance by the Oregon Board of Zoning Appeals was denied this year.
