        A hearing before the Lake Township trustees to decide a zoning change request for parcels along Woodville Road will likely be on the trustees’ meeting agenda in February, Richard Welling, a trustee, said last week.

        The township’s zoning commission Wednesday voted to turn down a request by the owner of the parcels, Jim Mlynek, who is seeking a change from R-2 residential to B-2 general commercial. The owner of Woodville Road Nursery, Mlynek has been using the property as a transfer station for piles of leaves that he composts at his nursery on the other side of Woodville Road.

        A resolution establishing pay rates for personnel that will be staffing Lake Township’s newly organized emergency medical service unit has been approved by the township trustees.

        The trustees Tuesday set the pay scale at $11.75 per hour for part-time emergency medical technicians, $12.50 for EMT- Intermediate and $15 for paramedics.

        At a previous meeting, the trustees approved the hiring of Kevin Sanders, a lieutenant and paramedic with the fire department, as the township’s EMS coordinator.

        Oregon City Council on Monday approved the purchase and installation of two monument signs with electronic messaging centers at the city’s municipal complex.

        The city provided specifications to three vendors, and Reason Sign Company provided the best quote.

        The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency will hold a public information meeting and hearing on Thursday, Jan. 18, at Waite High School regarding a draft air emissions permit for an iron briquette manufacturing facility in Toledo.

        The IronUnits plant plans to locate on the former Ironville Terminal Brownfield site at Front Street and Millard Avenue in East Toledo.

       The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has opted to take a different course in how the electrical  industry should address potential supply threats to the nation’s power grid, rejecting a proposal by the Department of Energy to set pricing rules that compensate coal and nuclear-powered generators for on-site storage of fuel.

        The DOE’s proposal stemmed from a department study that raised questions about the grid’s capacity when stressed by natural disasters. The problem is compounded by the retirement of nuclear and coal-powered plants.
