       The Woodmore school board has approved agreements with the police departments in the villages of Woodville and Elmore to establish a School Resource Officer program in the school system’s buildings.

        Under the agreements approved Wednesday, the officers will be on duty daily at the PreK-8 building in Woodville and the high school in Elmore.

        In conjunction with the cities of Perrysburg and Maumee, the Northwestern Water and Sewer District is exploring several options for supplying water to residential and commercial users, Jerry Greiner, district president, said.

        He said more discussions with the City of Bowling Green are planned as well as talks with Artesian of Pioneer, Inc. to possibly secure a groundwater source. A review of using Ottawa County as a water source is also on the table.

        A bill pending in the Ohio House of Representatives that would impose penalties on municipalities that charge higher sewer or water rates outside their corporation limits than they charge users within their boundaries has drawn the endorsement of the director of the Northwestern Water and Sewer District.

        Jerry Greiner said he supports House Bill 602, named the The Clean Water Fair Pricing Act, because it would stop “an unfair practice that is used throughout the state.”

        The Lake Township Police Department is following through on plans to form a Neighborhood Watch program in the Moline area.

        An organizational meeting was held June 15 and a second meeting is scheduled for July 11 at 7 p.m., said Ron Craig, Crime Prevention Officer/Community Policing Officer.

        Several bills that are pending in the Ohio legislature and are pertinent to his district will be discussed by State Representative Steve Arndt, R- Port Clinton, during a town hall forum June 25 at 6 p.m.in Elmore.

        Rep. Arndt said he will provide an update on House Bill 381 which would create the Zero-Emissions Nuclear Resource Program.
