        After walking about six miles of the dike system in Jerusalem Township, David Bench has some concerns.

        “We walked from the Cooley Canal up to Route 2. We then walked along Route 2 to Ward Canal,” Bench, a township trustee, said.

        Engineers from the Buffalo District of the Army Corps of Engineers were conducting the inspection.

                   Petty Officer James Campbell of the United States Coast Guard will be the keynote speaker at the East Toledo Club’s 84th annual Raising of the Flag to be held Monday, 7:00 a.m. at the Christ Dunberger American Legion Post 537 in Oregon.

         The honor guard will raise the flag at 7:00 and a free breakfast for veterans will follow. All veterans are invited.

        A tax abatement agreement between Lake schools and First Solar, Inc., has temporarily eliminated the need for the Lake school board to seek additional property tax millage - possibly as early as this November, Tim Krugh, board president, said Monday.

        The school board approved an abatement incentive package that exempts the company from paying property taxes for 15 years on a planned manufacturing facility in Lake Township at the intersection of State Rt. 795 and Tracy Road.

        In lieu of the property taxes, First Solar is agreeing to pay the school district $898,000 annually for 15 years.

        The Lake Township trustees have agreed to a request to rezone two parcels covering 2.3 acres along Woodville Road from R-2 residential to B-2 general commercial but included two stipulations.

        Jim Mlynek, who owns Woodville Road Nursery, sought the zoning change. He is using the parcels to temporarily store leaf piles before composting them at his nursery on the other side of Woodville Road.

        Oregon City Council on Monday accepted bids from three contractors for the 2018 Roadway Improvement Program. The three will share in the work, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman.

       Council approved the bids of Bowers Asphalt & Paving, Inc., Quinn Concrete Construction, and Henry W. Bergman, Inc. The total cost of the project is $1,293,508.

        “Each had the lowest and best bid for the project,” said Roman.

        The project will include asphalt overlay, concrete repair, South Shore Park road improvements, Navarre Avenue resurfacing, and various pavement repairs.
