The Benton-Carroll-Salem school board has scheduled a special meeting for Aug. 9 to decide on whether to place another request for millage on the ballot in November.

Voters last week turned down a 3.9-mill, 5-year operating levy that would have generated an additional $1.32 million annually for the Ottawa County school system.

Assistant county administrator named

The Wood County commissioners have appointed Joseph Fawcett of Bowling Green as the new assistant county administrator. Fawcett’s duties will include managing the county budget preparation process and monitoring appropriations, overseeing and supervising fiscal and clerical staff.

Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner, who is completing three terms as mayor, is running for re-election this fall. Stoner, 55, of Ross Street, was appointed to council in 1993, then was re-elected to another term before he ran for mayor.

Stoner said he’s running again because he believes he’s made “a positive difference” in the city while overseeing deep budget cuts as a result of the economic recession.

Early last spring, thieves stole over $14,000 in gaming accessories and movies from Flint Hills Graphics at 657 Main Street, East Toledo.

The thieves broke in on a Thursday night, and owner Frank Riddle discovered the back door busted open when he arrived the next morning and nearly everything gone inside.

The Toledo Fire and Rescue Arson Investigative Unit continue to examine multiple fires that have occurred throughout the city and are asking for residents’ help. 

The department was offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest of individuals involved, but late Thursday police had a breakthrough and arrested an arson suspect, 18-year-old Joshua Havermale of 502 Potter Street, East Toledo.
