Oregon is applying for Water Pollution Control Loan Funds through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) for its sanitary sewer project.

The funds will be used to construct Phase 4 Part B of the Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation project that will ensure the structural integrity of existing sewers and to remove groundwater infiltration from the sewer collection system.

The project will include the lining of 11,013 feet of sanitary sewer, ranging in size from 8” to 15” along with the lining of sewer laterals and manholes.

 The Woodmore school board will again be looking for a superintendent for the district.

 Jay LeFevre, who was hired in August on an interim basis, has announced he’ll be leaving for personal reasons.

 Is the financial condition of the Woodmore School District stable enough to reinstate some of the positions that were cut two years ago as part of an austerity move to offset a looming deficit?  

The agenda for the school board’s Feb. 21 meeting will include discussion of four positions, including a curriculum/testing director, groundskeeper, tech integration specialist/teacher, and an elementary school teacher.

Clean Energy Future, LLC President Bill Siderewicz says his company has formed a team consisting of four major players from around the world to advance the continued development of Oregon’s Energy Center Project. 

That includes financing for a second $900 million 960 megawatt gas-fired electricity-producing power plant. The first plant, an 800-megawatt facility, is already under construction.

The second project is expected to need approximately $900 million in financing, including $400 million in equity and $500 million debt.

Clean Energy Future-Oregon, LLC President Bill Siderewicz says once its second gas-fired electricity producing power plant is up and running, the two power plants will have a total “ripple” effect of $28 billion to the local economy.

Siderewicz says each power plant has a lifetime 40-year impact on Ohio, measured at $14 billion per plant.

As part of its Oregon Energy Center (OEC) Project, a new 955 megawatt gas-fired electricity production project will be constructed east of N. Lallendorf Rd., at the end of Parkway Rd., and immediately south of the existing railroad line.

Under current plans, the facility will be financed by January 2018, break ground in February 2018 and be fully operational by June 2020. Its wholesale electricity output will be adequate to meet the power needs of about 900,000 homes.
