Landlord Adam Snyder is accustomed to additional costs popping up at his rental properties. It’s to be expected when he owns dozens of units around the Village of Oak Harbor.

What he won’t stomach though is coughing up cash for somebody else’s old utility bill that the village refuses to take off its books.

Snyder recently addressed village council with his concern. His issue: the $469 outstanding utility bill for a three-apartment building at 115 ½ Ottawa St. he bought in a foreclosure deal with a bank.

 

The Oregon school board has informed the Oregon City Federation of Teachers to vacate its office in the Wynn Center, owned by the school district, because the board never approved its lease.

Veterans are invited to a free breakfast and flag raising ceremony on Memorial Day, May 26, 7 a.m. at the Christ Dunberger Post on Pickle and Wynn roads in Oregon.

The East Toledo Club is sponsoring the event for the 81st consecutive year. The first flag raising was held in 1933 at Pearson Park, which was the site for more than 75 years. In recent years, the club has partnered with the Dunberger Post to honor the men and women who have served our country.

Oregon City Administrator Mike Beazley will look into whether the city can give preference to local companies that bid on city projects after members of council raised questions about awarding the lowest bid for an irrigation project at the South Recreation Complex to an out of town firm.

Council on Monday voted 6-1 to award a bid to Ohio Irrigation Lawn Sprinkler Systems Inc., of Dayton, to furnish labor, materials and equipment for irrigation improvements to the South Recreation Complex. The company’s bid of $137,332 was the lowest and best bid.

Councilman James Seaman, who voted no, said at a committee of the whole meeting two weeks ago that the city should give preference to a local company, Landscape Design by Moritz, which had submitted a $141,050 bid, the fourth lowest of seven companies that bid on the project.

‘Stable’ population of walleye, perch, other species
Lake Erie anglers can expect to enjoy another year of diverse fishing opportunities in 2014, according to Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) biologists.

“While fishing success always varies among species and seasons, we expect that anglers will find success on the waters of Lake Erie this year,” said Jeff Tyson, Lake Erie fisheries program manager for the ODNR Division of Wildlife. “The lake’s population of walleye, yellow perch, black bass, white bass and steelhead remains stable, with a very broad distribution of sizes for each species.”
