        Brad Gilbert, director of the Wood County Emergency Management Agency, said he was pleased with how a hazardous material training exercise in Lake Township was conducted.

        Police, fire and emergency medical service departments from the township, Northwood, Perrysburg, Rossford, Perrysburg Township and the Wood County Sheriff’s Office participated in the exercise Tuesday at Univar USA on Tracy Road of a simulated truck accident and spill of acetone.

        State Senator Randy Gardner, R – Bowling Green, said last week he’s accepted an invitation by the Woodmore school board to discuss property tax revenues from the Nexus pipeline and he tentatively plans to attend the board’s October meeting.

        “I told them I would be glad to meet with them and talk,” Gardner said. “The challenge is going to be there is not going to be any specific answer as to how much money will be available from any pipeline company and there is no definitive answer it will have on state funding. By the time this revenue would be available the next state budget would be in effect so the funding formula is likely to change.

        The Lake Township trustees last week agreed to retain Amlin Auction, Holland, O., to sell property along Lemoyne Road.

        An auction date of Oct. 29 was approved.

        Last month, administrator Mark Hummer asked the trustees to consider placing the property up for sale, saying it wasn’t needed.

        Grant proposals for using dredged material from Lake Erie will be discussed by the Ohio Lake Erie Commission at its quarterly meeting Sept. 18 in Port Clinton.

        The meeting will be held at Camp Perry, Building 600, 1000 Lawrence Rd. and will start at 10 a.m.

        The commission’s Dredge Research and Innovation in Farming Team, which was established by state statute to advise the commission of benefits and effectiveness of applying dredged material to agricultural land, has been reviewing various proposals.

        A meeting set for Sept. 11 of county commissioners from Wood, Ottawa and Sandusky counties to discuss the Toussaint Creek improvement project was postponed.

        Mike Libben, program administrator of the Ottawa County Soil and Water District, said it was to be the final meeting of the joint county board to approve final assessments for the project but the board decided more time is needed.
