       The Wood County Planning Commission has scheduled a public forum for next month to hear project proposals eligible for funding from the Community Development Block Grant program.

        The forum will be held March 7 at 6 p.m. in the Wood County commissioners meeting room at One Courthouse Square in Bowling Green.

        More personnel for the Emergency Medical Services unit in Lake Township have been hired, bringing the township closer to meeting the goal of having the unit operating in the first quarter of the year.

        The Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals has rejected a request by a man seeking the return of money seized during an October 2015 traffic stop on I-280 by Northwood police officers.

        The appeals court last week upheld a decision by the Wood County Common Pleas court denying the motion of Terrell Travis to have the money returned.

        The vacated Tireman store at the former Woodville Mall site was razed on Monday. The Andersons and Elder-Beerman stores, the only buildings that remain on the property, are next.

        “The mall is finally coming down,” City Administrator Bob Anderson said to The Press last week. “Tireman no longer stands. Andersons is still up, but it’s next on the list. Most of the material has been removed from the interior. They are also still working inside the Elder-Beerman store. By the time the Andersons is torn down, Elder-Beerman will be ready.”

        Northwood City Council at a meeting earlier this month established the city as an Energy Special Improvement District (ESID).

        The designation allows the city to apply for low interest loans for energy efficient projects. Businesses can also apply for funding to invest in energy upgrades. The loans can cover a variety of energy projects, including high efficiency furnaces, windows and insulation, and alternative energy devices. It also allows repayment of the loan via property tax assessments over a period of years.
