        The Wood County prosecutor’s office is now interceding in a zoning dispute over property along Woodville Road being used to temporarily store piles of leaves.

        Mark Hummer, Lake Township administrator, reported to the township trustees Tuesday that the prosecutor’s office has sent a letter to legal counsel for Jim Mlynek, owner of the property and Woodville Road Nursery. He’s been using the site to store leaves before composting them at the nursery on the other side of Woodville Road.

School districts will be encouraged to partner with local agencies such as alcohol, drug and mental health boards, county board of developmental disabilities, local health departments, local departments of Jobs and Family Services and non-profit centers with experience working with children.
