        The Elmore Police Department is providing a secure location for residents to dispose unused medications.

        Chief Jeffery Harrison said the Rite Aid Foundation has given the village a drop off box, which was installed earlier this month in the lobby of the department at 344 Rice St.

       The Village of Oak Harbor is seeking applicants to fill a seat on village council after Don Douglas, council president, was appointed acting mayor in the wake of the abrupt resignation of Joe Helle, who stepped down last week after a dispute over his residency.

      Is there a potential buyer for property along Lemoyne Road that the Lake Township trustees purchased nine years ago?

        The trustees Tuesday approved the request of Mark Hummer, township administrator, to see if there is any interest in the property from the local real estate market.

        The Northwestern Water and Sewer District is commissioning a formal study of its rate structure to provide a format for establishing water and sewer rates over the next decade.

        “Affordability, aging infrastructure and increasing regulations are all challenges for any water and sewer utility; that is why we are looking at our entire rate system, to see if we can assist lower income users or help large consumers to take care of those who can’t afford the system or may be forced to lose their business,” Jerry Greiner, district president, said.

        Oregon’s Safety Committee recently rejected a proposal to implement a hand-held speed camera program for the police department.

        Councilman Tim Zale, chairman of the safety committee, said Blue Line Solutions, which operates the program, approached city officials.

        “They wanted to meet me and City Administrator Mike Beazley to present their program to us,” said Zale. “I felt obligated to present it to council and the police department. I didn’t necessarily agree with it. We had a safety committee meeting on it. No one was in favor of it. I’m fine with that.”
