         Oregon City Council on Monday will consider passing a capital improvements charge for Phase 2 of the Wastewater Treatment Plant Secondary Treatments Improvement Project.

        In order to eliminate wastewater treatment plant bypasses and sanitary sewer overflows that are detrimental to Lake Erie, the city is required by the Ohio EPA to increase the secondary treatment capacity of the plant from 24 million gallons per day (MGD) to 36 MGD. The project will eliminate secondary treatment bypasses to Lake Erie and sanitary sewer overflows to Otter Creek during wet weather events.

         Oregon City Council on Monday will consider accepting the bid of Cash Services, Northwood, for the Grasser Street sanitary, storm, and waterline improvements project.

        The project includes replacing the existing sanitary sewers and water lines on Grasser Street between Navarre Avenue and Munding Drive.

        Officials in Ottawa County are anxiously waiting for word from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on a proposal by Energy Secretary Rick Perry for the commission to address threats to the resiliency of the nation’s electric grid.

        In September, Secretary Perry urged the FERC to adopt rules requiring its markets to develop reforms that would fully price generation resources to maintain the reliability of the grid.

        “A diverse mix of power generation resources, including those with on-site reserves, is essential to the reliable delivery of electricity – particularly in times of supply stress such as recent natural disasters,” he said.

        Eastwood Key Club students noticed the high school halls were lined by accomplishments of the district’s athletes.

        They also noticed there was no recognition of the district’s veterans, so this school service organization decided to change all that. 

        Today, because of the Key Club's efforts, a wall near the entrance of the high school adorns the names of approximately 860 Eastwood alums who served in the armed forces.

Saying they are tired of seeing dogs chained outside, in all kinds of weather, members of the Lucas County Pit Crew are holding a public meeting on Thursday, Dec. 14 from 6:30-8 p.m., at 855 N. McCord Road, in Toledo.

According to Jean Keating, executive director of the Lucas County Pit Crew, those who attend the meeting are invited to help come up with plans that concerned citizens can use to help a dog they see that is tethered for long periods of time.
