After a 30-minute executive session Tuesday, the Lake Township trustees approved a motion to back out of an agreement to purchase acreage near the corner of Walbridge and Lemoyne roads they had hoped could be used to expand the township cemetery.
 
The trustees agreed to send a letter to the property owners to end the deal and seek a refund of a $10,000 down payment.
 
Richard Welling, a trustee, said “perpetual easements” on the property would essentially prevent the township from expanding the cemetery to the site.

Emergency help offered
WSOS Community Action Inc., has announced that new funding for emergency food and shelter programs is available to Sandusky County organizations that provide emergency food and shelter programs.

A total of $56,747 has been awarded to Sandusky County by the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board, which is chaired by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county. WSOS distributes the funds locally.

The Oregon City Schools District will be replacing its current T1 Internet connections with a new fiber network that will connect all of the Oregon City Schools to Clay High School.

If the engineering, permitting and building processes go as planned, the fiber network will be in place for the 2009-2010 school year, according to Nathan Quigg, the district’s technology director.

The Oregon school board last Wednesday accepted the resignation of Loren Dirr, Clay High School principal.

Dirr, who spent 34 years in the district, is retiring. His resignation becomes effective Aug. 1.
