Roads, rail crossings closing for repairs
The Ottawa County engineer’s office has announced the closure of roads and rail crossings for repairs.

Salem-Carroll Road, between Benton-Carroll Road and State Route 19, will be closed to through traffic starting April 26 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. until May 27.

The road will be open only to emergency traffic and buses.

Norfolk and Southern Railroad plans to close Toussaint-Portage Road, from Christiansen Road to Salem-Carroll Road and Cullman Road, from Portage South Road to State Route 19, for crossing repairs.

The closures are expected to be in effect April 26 to April 30.

The roads won’t be open to any traffic, including emergency and bus traffic.

 

Project to be re-bid
The Ottawa County Board of Commissioners has scheduled May 18 for the opening of new bids for upgrading a Billman Road bridge in Allen Township.

Following a recommendation of the county engineer’s office, the commissioners earlier this month rejected bids due to errors in pricing.

The bridge crosses Cedar Creek.


A sweeping plan
The Lake Township trustees have approved contracting with Progressive Sweeping, Toledo, for $2,970 to sweep 16.8 miles of designated streets, including Eastpointe, Crosswoods, Indian Trails, Cedar Valley, Lakewood, Rockland Drive & Circle, Indian Creek, Country Meadows, Freedom Estates, Argyle Forest, and Commodore Drive.

The streets will be swept monthly in June, August, and October to comply with a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency storm water management plan.


Lake finances to be discussed  
The Lake school board has scheduled May 6 at 6 pm in the Middle School Media Center for a public forum to discuss the financial issues facing the district.  This is a follow-up to previous presentations to local elected officials and community leaders.


Funding for Camp Perry
Camp Perry will receive about $2.6 million in state and federal funds for upgrades to water and electrical distribution systems.

State funds will be combined with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to replace piping, water meters, utility poles, exterior lighting, and electric meters.
