Bills that should have been paid last month are piling up in Jerusalem Township.

The township, as do other communities, approves payment of the bills at every trustee meeting. Two of three trustees must approve of a motion to pay the bills before the money is disbursed.

Before your income taxes are due to be filed with the IRS, another deadline looms that can impact your personal finances.

March 31 is the deadline for property owners to challenge the 2008 valuations used to calculate property tax bills issued this past December and the upcoming bills in June.

Channel 11 weathercaster Tara Hastings, a co-emcee at the 16th Annual Prism Award ceremony, grew up two houses from a BP refinery in Whiting, Indiana, so she could identify with this year’s Best Practice Award winner, BP-Husky Refining LLC in Oregon.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has signed off on the clean-up of a 44-acre parcel on   Miami Street, granting the Maumee Riverfront Improvement Project a covenant not to sue.

The property, located at 1968 Miami Street, had been owned by the Pilkington North America and Libbey Owens Ford glassmaking companies.

The forms used to file a challenge to your property value must be in your county auditor’s office – not postmarked - by March 31. The forms can be picked up at the auditor’s office or may be available for downloading from the auditor’s Web site.
