Elmore Mayor Lowell Krumnow is asking anyone interested in being appointed to the village board of public affairs to contact the village office at 419-862-3362 before Dec 4.
To be considered for the position, applicants must be at least 18 years old, a registered voter, and a resident of Elmore. Some public utility knowledge is preferred but not required. Due to meeting requirements, candidates should have a flexible schedule to perform the duties associated with the board position.
Nobody entered the recent election race for a seat on the three-member board.
The board oversees public utilities in the village.
Board OKs indoor track
The Woodmore school board has decided to officially recognize indoor track and field as a sport for the 2009-10 school year.
The board approved the recognition at its last meeting with the understanding the district wouldn’t provide any financing, scheduling, transportation, or paid coaches for the program.
In other business, the board approved open enrollment status for two Woodmore students moving into the Genoa Area Local School District and three students from the Fremont School District.

Thanks to outgoing mayor
The Lake Township Board of Trustees last week approved a resolution of appreciation for Oregon Mayor Marge Brown, who was defeated in her bid for re-election.
The resolution thanks the mayor for the “..wonderful working relationship she has shown Lake Township during her term as mayor and chairman of Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments.”
It also notes she was instrumental in implementing the Community Care-a-Van service and that the city donated to the township a fire truck equipped to spread foam.
Mayor Brown is the aunt of trustee Richard Welling.
