Riders Unlimited, Inc. has completed the purchase of a horse facility on Behlman Road near Oak Harbor and is now looking for volunteers to help with repairs.

The non-profit organization based in Fremont purchased the property that had been owned by  Robin Vess, who was convicted of animal cruelty in 2010 after officers from the Humane Society of Ottawa County responded to a call about the poor condition of more than 40 horses on the farm.

The Genoa school board has a potential buyer for the Brunner Elementary School building but the deal requires rezoning of the school property.

Oregon council on Monday will consider amending a sanitary sewer accommodation tap agreement for Cedar Point Development, LLC.

Once again the Lake Township trustees have gone on record opposing a proposal floated by Gov. John Kasich to lease the Ohio Turnpike to a private entity.

The trustees Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution against the leasing of the toll road, saying it could detrimentally affect township businesses in the I-280/turnpike corridor which benefit from the turnpike toll collection system.

A resolution expressing opposition to the proposed lease of the Ohio Turnpike will be on the agenda of Oregon City Council on Monday.

Gov. John Kasich has proposed leasing the 241-mile turnpike to private interests to turn a profit.

“Oregon believes that leasing the currently well-maintained turnpike will result in a lesser maintained roadway and higher tolls unrelated to the actual cost of its safe operation,” states the resolution.
