        A bill pending in the Ohio House of Representatives that would impose penalties on municipalities that charge higher sewer or water rates outside their corporation limits than they charge users within their boundaries has drawn the endorsement of the director of the Northwestern Water and Sewer District.

        The Lake Township Police Department is following through on plans to form a Neighborhood Watch program in the Moline area.

        Oregon wants to remind residents that solicitors are required to get a permit issued by the city before they go door to door to sell products and services. The long held policy is to help protect residents from scam artists.

        At a recent council meeting, a resident said a salesman came to his door without a permit.

        Fred Gerke, of N. Eastmoreland, said he had asked the solicitor to show his permit.

        “He said I should call the police because he was on record at the department. I asked him again. He said he didn’t have it but had a card. I said `No. I want to see your photo.”’

        Gerke said few residents know that solicitors must have permits with photo IDs.
