        The winter weather and a blanket of snow may be inviting to snowmobilers, but in Lake Township you’d better have the permission of property owners before racing across the many fields in rural areas of the township.

        Police Chief Mark Hummer said a no-tolerance policy remains in effect, meaning patrol officers will cite violators rather than issue warnings. While the offense of criminal trespassing is a misdemeanor for violations involving snowmobiles or all-terrain vehicles, the fines are doubled.

        Clean-up work at the former Brush Beryllium site near the Village of Luckey will resume Jan. 2 after a break for the holidays.

        Contractor crews have been pouring concrete for several pads that are needed and assembly of the structure that will house a soil sorter is complete, said Arleen Kreusch, outreach program specialist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

       Steve Arndt can still remember encouraging the concept of palliative care be adopted at the Riverview Nursing Home in Oak Harbor when he was an Ottawa County commissioner.

        “I’ve seen the difference it makes in an individual’s life,” he said. “It was one of those things that helped change the whole culture within Riverview Nursing Home.”

        The Woodmore school board Tuesday took the first step in placing a renewal levy request on the May 2018 ballot by approving a resolution of necessity for a 3-mill, 5-year permanent improvement levy that was first approved by voters in 2012.

        A second required resolution will be on the agenda of the board’s January meeting, said Cara Brown, who chairs the board finance committee.

       The Lake Township trustees have authorized the township fire chief and solicitor to prepare a contract and job description for the new position of Emergency Medical Service coordinator.

        The trustees last week approved the hiring of Kevin Sanders, a lieutenant in the township’s fire department, for the position.
