The Oregon school board will likely place an operating levy on the ballot this November to counter the continued loss of revenue facing the district.

Jane Fruth, treasurer of the Oregon City Schools District, said at the last school board meeting that real estate taxes were down by 3.5 percent from the previous year due to reductions in valuations.

“Besides the real estate issue, our revenue is flat overall. Our expenses are trending about 3 to 4 percent from last year’s fiscal year. You’re all aware school finances are cyclical in nature. In the last fiscal year, we did begin spending more money than we’re bringing in. And that is not sustainable.”

A man accused of killing his estranged wife last year has filed a request in Ottawa County Common Pleas Court for a new attorney.

Randall Ross, 48, who filed the request Monday, is scheduled to stand trial in the shooting death of his wife, Amy. The shooting took place in March of last year at the N. Leutz Road home of Andrea Swope, Amy’s sister, where the victim had been staying.

Ross has been represented by Toledo attorneys Adrian Cimerman and John Thebes.

A hearing on the request by Ross is scheduled for May 11.
