        The Wood County auditor’s office will hold a sale of forfeited land Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. in Bowling Green.

        The sale will be a public auction format and the parcels, which are being offered due to non-payment of taxes, will be sold to the highest bidders.

        A proposal by Lake Township Fire Chief Bruce Moritz to end an agreement with a company for billing for Emergency Medical Service transports has been approved by the township trustees.

        Moritz recommended terminating the township’s contract with Health Services Integration and enter into an agreement with Great Lakes Billing Associates, Inc., Cleveland.

        The staff of the Wood County Planning Commission is recommending the commission approve a zoning change request for two lots in Lake Township along Woodville Road from R-2 residential to B-2 general commercial.

        The request was submitted by James Mlynek, owner of Woodville Road Nursery, who plans to use the parcels as a transfer station for leaves that will be used to make compost across the road at the nursery site.

        The planning commission is scheduled to meet Dec. 5 at 5:30 p.m. at the county office building in Bowling Green.

        A task force of legislators and others studying the impact of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia on the health care system and other issues related to aging may have a report to present to the Ohio House Aging and Long-Term Care Committee by early next year.

        Steve Arndt, R- Port Clinton, who chairs the newly-formed committee, said last week a bill based on the task force recommendations could also be prepared early in 2018.
