   Oregon City Council approved an enterprise zone agreement for TESCO, which sells buses on Navarre Avenue.   
   The company plans to invest between $4 million and $6 million to build a 25,000 square foot facility to accommodate used bus sales and service operations. The expansion will result in 14 new full-time positions within the next two years, with a total annual salary of approximately $530,000.
   The enterprise zone agreement would provide a tax exemption of 50 percent on eligible real property for 10 years as a result of the project. 

Oregon City Council on Monday approved an agreement with the City of Toledo and Clean Energy Future LLC to provide cooling water for a gas fired power generation facility as well as provide emergency interconnection between the two water systems.

The Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG), the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department, and the City of Oregon are urging 400 homeowners in Oregon and Jerusalem Township who live within the Wolf Creek Watershed to take advantage of a $75 discount to have their septic tanks cleaned out before the offer expires on June 30.

Oregon council is considering reducing the seats on the Citizens’ Advisory Board for the Parks and Recreation Department from seven to three in an effort to operate more efficiently. The number would be reduced over time through attrition.

 An initial offer of $25,000 from CSX Transportation wasn’t enough for the Lake Township trustees to decide to authorize the rail company’s removal of a rail crossing at Walbridge Road and closing it to vehicular traffic.

 The trustees Tuesday voted unanimously to decline the offer after a brief discussion and fielding questions from residents.  In an April 27 letter to the trustees, the rail company said it is pursuing the closure “in response to changing railroad operating conditions and believes this to the best option to limit public impacts while also improving public safety. The option to close public, at-grade railroad crossings also aligns with goals established by the United States Department of Transportation and Federal Railroad Administration to reduce the total number of public at-grade crossings nationally.”
