Oregon is considering installing its own monitoring wells in the right-of-way around Envirosafe Services of Ohio’s hazardous waste landfill on Otter Creek Road.
Currently, over 100 monitoring wells installed on Envirosafe’s property are tested by the company regularly to determine whether contamination is leaking from the landfill.
A recommendation to contract with a Columbus engineering firm for assessing a brownfield site where a service station had been located will be presented to members of Elmore Village Council next week for consideration.
Council’s planning and environment committee last Monday agreed to recommend the hiring of Burgess & Niple to test for any contamination of the property at 408 Rice Street.
The village has been awarded a $150,000 grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the assessment of the site where four underground fuel storage tanks have been out of service for about 14 years.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources will host public meetings next month to gather input from the public on proposed rules for managing construction and improvement projects along the Lake Erie shoreline.
The proposed rule changes to the Ohio Administrative Code reflect a new policy for managing the state’s coastal lands announced last summer by Gov. Ted Strickland.
One area the governor’s policy addresses is that of what rights property owners along the lake shoreline with valid deeds have.
Cardinal Stritch High School has terminated the contract of newly hired head football coach Andre Hampton after an internal investigation of what the school administration is calling “illegal financial activity.”
The school, in a statement issued Thursday, said it was cooperating with the Oregon Police Department which was conducting an “ongoing investigation into the matter.”
School officials declined to comment further on the investigation.
The Genoa school board last week passed a resolution to place a 1.9-mill, 28-year bond issue on the November ballot to fund the local share of construction costs for a new elementary school building and renovations to the high school.
If approved by voters, the issue would generate about $5.23 million for the project, which will also be funded by $13.7 million from the Ohio School Facilities Commission and a $6.2 million credit the Genoa district has with the OSFC.
