Genoa officials are about to challenge former residents who rent and run, leaving overdue utility bills in their wake.

Village council recently approved the hiring of a collections agency to track down those who left town without paying past due utility bills.

Finding these people who have skipped on the bills falls to the firm of Scheer, Green and Burke, L.P.A.

A new pirate ship playground is expected in Genoa around mid-July.

“It’s been ordered and should be here sometime in the middle of July,” said Village Administrator Kevin Gladden. “It’s a little later than I had hoped, but we’ll have it.”

Forum to discuss lake’s algae problem

A public forum will be held July 10 to discuss Ohio’s new Healthy Lake Erie Fund. Participants can offer input on solutions to resolving the lake’s algae problems.

The forum will be held at 4 p.m. at the Lake Erie Regional Welcome Center in Ottawa County.

If the first six months of this year are any indication, voting by members of Walbridge Village Council in the next six will follow a pattern on one issue – Mayor Dan Wilczynski’s attendance at council meetings.

If the pattern holds, councilman Nathan Eikost – as he has eight times in the first half of the year  - will make a motion to excuse the mayor’s absence if the mayor is unable to attend a meeting, and the ensuing vote by the six members of council will end in a 3-3 tie, which isn’t enough to approve the motion.

The fourth grade GATE Destination ImagiNation Team from Woodmore Elementary School has set a new record at the school.

The team, Nick Bittel, Johanna Cutcher, Regan Draeger, Kiersten Flick, Phoebe Jackson, Marty Perkins, and Loren Taylor, not only placed first in both regional and state DI competitions, they were the first team ever to make it to the organization’s global competition.
