        Oregon's senior levy is up for renewal in November. 

        On Nov. 5, 2013, voters approved a .5 mill levy for the years 2014-2018. Collections began in 2014 and will continue through 2018. The levy was passed for the purpose of providing additional funds for senior services in the city.

        “We believe we have put that money to good use,” said Mayor Mike Seferian at a committee of the whole meeting last week. “There’s a demand for services for the senior center and we believe the public will support that.”

         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
