The Village of Oak Harbor is looking for a new administrator and plenty of people want the job.

Mayor Bill Eberle said 70 applications had been received as of the Feb. 28 application deadline for the position recently vacated by Robert Pauley. Pauley, who had held the position since 2009, left unexpectedly in mid- February.

Eberle said he will review resumes to weed out the first wave of candidates.

“A lot of them are health care people looking for work,” he told council during the mayor’s report portion of Monday night’s regular Oak Harbor Village Council meeting.

The Harris Township trustees plan to have sufficient personnel hired by early April to provide 24-hour emergency medical service in the township and Village of Elmore.

Carol Baker, a township trustee, said last week the board of trustees has hired more part-time emergency medical workers to ease the burden on a pool of volunteers whose ranks have been dropping.

Voters in the village and township last November approved a 4.5-mill, 5-year property tax levy to fund additional emergency medical service. Annually, the levy is expected to generate $289,500, according to figures compiled by the Ottawa County auditor’s office.

Purk, a senior heading for the University of Toledo to study biomedical engineering, is part of a 15-person team of nine seniors and six underclassmen readying for the 2014 Science Olympiad March 8 at Case Western University in Lorain.

Motorists can expect some minor traffic delays near between Mike’s Tavern, 8956 Route 163, and the Toussaint North intersection where the concentration of the work will take place.

Oak Harbor Village Council got the project rolling Monday when members heard the first reading of an ordinance directing interim administrator Randy Genzman to prepare specifications, advertise for bids and award contracts relating to the second mile of the line replacement. The second reading will be March 17. Three readings are required unless council chooses to use the emergency clause.
