Zoning amendment on plan commission agenda
The Wood County Planning Commission on May 7 will consider a request to amend the Webster Township zoning resolution and allow a propane distribution business to operate under a conditional use in an agricultural district.
Gregory Bakies has submitted the amendment proposal, which would cover parcels on Routes 105, 582, and 199.
Fencing and buffering would be required but the land would remain zoned for agricultural use.
The plan commission staff is recommending the commission approve the request, and, in turn, recommend the township trustees approve the amendment.
The plan commission meeting is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m.
Starting in July, Dr. Margy Brennan-Krueger will hold the dual role of principal at Luckey Elementary School as well as School Improvement Specialist.
For the last five years she has served as the full-time improvement specialist in the district, having been hired through the Wood County Educational Service Center.
Brent Welker, district superintendent, said her primary responsibility has been to keep the district current on the changes in federal and state standards and assessments.
Food service awards
The award will be presented to 32 licensed food service operations out of more than 700 operations in the county.
The owners will receive a certificate of excellence and recognition in food safety and a Clean Plate Award decal to display.
This is the third year the board of health has sponsored the awards.
“Food service operations that receive this award meet pretty stringent criteria,” said Brad Espen, Director of Environmental Services.
The work, which began recently, will limit traffic to local residents and businesses, buses, and emergency vehicles during restricted hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Other vehicles will be rerouted.
Due to inclement weather, the project’s anticipated completion has been set back to May 7.
