With the completion of several infrastructure projects in Oregon, the fire department will no longer be using its sirens, a relief for residents living near the city’s three fire stations.

The stations - at Bay Shore Road, Wynn and Seaman, and on Wheeling Street near I-280, have not used the sirens in years, said Mayor Mike Seferian.

For new Northwood Fire Chief Joel Whitmore, becoming a firefighter, much less a fire chief, has been a lifelong dream come true.

“It was always something I wanted to do, even as a kid,” Whitmore said. “I just always thought it would be cool to be a fireman. I joined the fire department when I graduated from Northwood High School in 1988.”

A developer’s application to re-plat a Lake Township subdivision that was submitted in April of last year to the Wood County Planning Commission may finally be decided now that the county prosecutor’s office has weighed in on the matter.

DMWW Properties LLC submitted the request for parcels in the Freedom Estates subdivision, asking the planning commission to approve re-platting two residential lots covering about 1.66 acres. The developer also requested a variance for an open green space in the subdivision equal to about 80 percent of what is required under the county’s regulations for subdivisions.

City council is considering repealing an ordinance passed last year that requires registration of contractors and tradesman doing work in the city.

The purpose of registration, which includes a fee, is to collect income taxes from contractors doing work in the city. Registration would also ensure that contractors are licensed, have insurance and are reliable.  A registration list  also becomes a standard by which homeowners can decide on who to hire.
