Automated photo speed and red light enforcement traffic cameras at two intersections in Northwood have been deactivated.
“I’m convinced that there are still four votes on council against renewing the contract for the traffic cameras. They are not wavering,” City Administrator Bob Anderson said of city council last week.
Since the city’s three year contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., expired on April 23, Anderson said there is no reason for the cameras to continue catching motorists speeding or running red lights. The strobe lights emitted by the cameras, which caused speeding motorists to cringe as they crossed the intersections, are no more.
About 1,400 boaters, including 573 at Meinke Marina and 419 at Anchor Pointe Marina, are again able to navigate Cooley Canal to reach Lake Erie waters, thanks to the completion of a $300,000 dredging project.
That includes hundreds more that annually use Lucas County’s public dock on Cooley Canal, located in Jerusalem Township.
The problem began last summer when boats were getting stuck on sandbars and had to be towed. The reason — lake levels have dropped, says Paul Ashburn, board member and officer for Anchor Pointe.
A Lake Township trustee is repeating his request for an opinion from the Wood County Prosecutor’s office on what zoning resolutions a township can enforce to regulate shooting ranges – but with a slight change.
In a previous letter, Richard Welling asked the prosecutor’s office if there are zoning regulations a township can enforce regarding the discharge of firearms.
The office of Paul Dobson confirmed it had received the letter and said an opinion would be provided in about eight weeks.
