Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz will deliver the 2019 State of the City Address at Waite High School, 301 Morrison Dr., at 5 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 28.

The annual State of the City brings community, business, faith, non-profit, and government leaders together to hear the state of the City. Mayor Kapszukiewicz’s address will highlight accomplishments of the past year and his vision and initiatives for 2019 and beyond. The mayor is committed to fiscally-responsible policies to enhance the efficiency and transparency of city operations. He also strives to increase the education, income, and health of all Toledoans.

        An ordinance requiring Walbridge police officers to reimburse the department for uniform and training/testing costs if they voluntarily resign within two years of being hired has been approved by village council.

        Restoration projects at area marshes and a refuge figured prominently in the list of improvements to natural areas that Ducks Unlimited and partner organizations completed last year.

        Ducks Unlimited said it and several partners protected, enhanced or restored 1,509 acres of wetland habitat across 17 Ohio project sites in 2018.

        A disagreement between Lake Township and the Village of Walbridge over which entity is responsible for maintaining a stretch of Drouillard Road may be decided in court.

        The township has filed a complaint in Wood County Common Pleas Court, asking for a declatory judgment to force the village to meet obligations set in a 1977 agreement that was part of an annexation by the village of township land adjacent to Drouillard.
