       Saying it’s a necessary but unwelcome step, FirstEnergy Solutions last week filed its plans with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for retraining fuel handlers as part of the process for deactivating the company’s three nuclear power plants.

        Last week’s decision by the Ohio Department of Medicaid requiring its five managed care plans to terminate contracts with pharmacy benefits managers using a “spread pricing” model is long overdue, said State Representative Teresa Fedor, D-Toledo, who contends millions of Ohioans have been affected financially by “big-pharma middlemen.”

        Ottawa County Probate Judge Kathleen Giesler is accepting letters of interest from residents who want to serve on the Park District of Ottawa County as a commissioner.

        Letters should be submitted to the probate court no later than Aug. 28. The court is located at 315 Madison St., Port Clinton.

        The person appointed will fill the unexpired term created by a recent vacancy.

        The park district was created in 1972 for the development, operation, acquisition and maintenance of park and recreation facilities.


          Plans for a new senior housing development on Navarre Avenue are moving forward. Funding for the project was approved recently.

        “Their funding source was approved about a month ago,” Mayor Mike Seferian said of Miller Valentine Group, the developer of the project. Plans call for the construction of a four-story, 81-unit housing complex.

        The location, at 4436 Navarre Avenue, is next to the senior center, and across the street from Pearson Metropark. It is less than ¾ of a mile from Walmart and is less than a mile from the Mercy medical office buildings.

        The Northwest Water & Sewer District, along with some other Northwest Ohio communities, will receive grants from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency for wastewater, drinking water and infrastructure improvements.

        A total of $87 million in low-interest and principal forgiveness funding from the agency will be distributed to communities to improve wastewater and drinking water infrastructure and make other water quality improvements, according to the Ohio EPA. The loans were approved between April 1 and June 30 this year.
