Development director named in Wood County

Wade Gottschalk, of Bowling Green, has been selected by the Wood County commissioners to lead the Wood County Office of Economic Development as executive director.

Gottschalk has served as associate director of this office since 2001 and was instrumental in many significant projects over that period of time, such as the CSX Intermodal Terminal in Henry Township, the new FedEx Ground facility, First Solar expansion projects in Perrysburg Township, and Calphalon in Middleton Township.

He is a graduate of Bowling Green State University, with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a Master of Public Administration degree.

As executive director, Gottschalk will work closely with the Wood County Economic Development Commission.

He replaces Tom Blaha who retired in July.


Business filings up
Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has announced that 6,137 new entities filed to do business in Ohio in July.

The numbers are up compared to July 2011, in which 5,472 new entities filed with his office.

Husted said his office has assisted with 52,728 new business filings to date in 2012 (January through July), representing an increase from the same time period last year, in which there were 49,460 new business filings.


Abatement continued
The Ottawa County commissioners have approved resolutions to continue a tax abatement agreement for Northern Manufacturing, Inc. in Oak Harbor.

The county’s Tax Incentive Review Board recommended the continuance, citing the company’s compliance to the terms of the enterprise zone agreement.


B-C-S board meetings
The Benton-Carroll-Salem school board will be holding two meetings in a five-day span. A special meeting is scheduled for Aug. 23 at 1 p.m. and a regular meeting is set for Aug. 28 at 6 p.m.

Both will be held at the board office, 11685 W. State Route 163, Oak Harbor.
