         Oregon is srreamlining streamline notice provisions in response to nuisance complaints.

        The current code requires new notices for repeat nuisance violations. The code change provides for a similar streamlined notice process as in the noxious weed and failure to cut grass code. Once a party has been put on notice, the change would streamline the process by no longer requiring multiple notices to be issued beyond the first 30 day notice.

       The Ohio Farmers Union is also questioning the logic of Gov. John Kasich’s executive order adopting more aggressive action by state agencies to reduce runoff from watersheds in Lake Erie’s western basin.

        The executive order targets eight watersheds in the western basin of Lake Erie that will be considered for designation under state law as “Watersheds in Distress,” based on their high nutrient levels, especially phosphorous, from agricultural runoff.

     Habitat for Humanity of Wood County will hold an opening ceremony for its 38th home July 28 in Walbridge.

        The keys to the home at 223 Guy Street will be presented to Danielle Bowles.  

        The Lake Township trustees Tuesday approved a resolution to contract with a Fremont company to paint safety stripes on several roads for $10,650.

        Under the agreement, Zimmerman Pain Contractors, Hayes Ave., will stripe:

-Millbury Road, from State Rt. 51 to Walbridge Road

- Millbury Road, from Walbridge Road to State Rt. 579

        The Northwood Planning Commission on Monday recommended to city council that it change the language in the city’s zoning code that would prevent a mental health and drug treatment facility from locating at a site on Curtice Road.

        The Zepf Center recently purchased the 1.2 acre parcel at 4508 Curtice Road for $250,000 from Glenn and Meridith Hill on July 5, according to the Wood County Auditor’s website. The Hills had bought the property from James Jones and Joan Wielinski for $191,000 in 2011.

        The site, known as “Pumpkin Hill,” sold pumpkins and other autumn harvest products. One hundred percent of the profits were donated to charity.

       The property is zoned Rural Residential.
