Genoa American Legion Post 324 likes to trace its beginnings to Teddy Roosevelt and the original founding of the American Legion.

The Genoa post was chartered on January 17, 1920 and had 15 original members. The foundation of the American Legion was laid just one year earlier.

        The Lake Township trustees are pushing for safety improvements on several roadways, including a reduction of the speed limit on a stretch of Walbridge Road.

        The trustees Tuesday agreed to authorize a speed limit study on Walbridge and plan to seek a reduction of the limit to 35 MPH from the current 55 MPH between Lemoyne Road and State Route 51.

       Under a renewed two-year agreement between Ottawa County and FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company the company will pay $381,078 to help fund staffing of the county’s emergency management agency, training and other expenses related to the emergency plan for the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station.

        The county commissioners approved the grant agreement during a meeting earlier this month.

        It will be in effect Jan. 1, 2019 through Dec. 31, 2020.

      The Benton-Carroll-Salem school board will review the results of Tuesday’s election and then decide how to again seek voter approval of additional tax funding for the school district, Guy Parmigian, district superintendent, said last week,

        Voters last week rejected a request for a 1 percent tax on earned income by a 323-vote margin; 2,147 for to 2,470 against, according to unofficial results.

        Parmigian said the issue only passed in a Benton Township precinct.

        On Nov. 6, Oregon voters will decide whether to renew the .5 mill local senior levy.

        The levy originally passed on Nov. 5, 2013, to provide funding for senior services from 2014 to 2018. The levy was passed for the purpose of providing additional funds for senior services in the city.

        Mayor Mike Seferian said he believes the public will support the renewal because of the demand for services at the senior center.

        This year, the city is looking at a couple of major projects, including improvements to the senior center building, and its parking lot.

        City Administrator Mike Beazley said there is much more activity at the senior center than in the previous facility, an old water pumping station on Bayshore Road.
