        Bay Area Credit Union and Edward Jones Investments financial advisor Dylan M. Clement were business winners at the 25th Annual Prism Awards hosted by the Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce Tuesday at Sunrise Banquet Center.

        Bay Area Credit Union, which has 22 employees, was honored by the Prism judges with a General Excellence Award, which is based on performance, creating opportunity for employees and customers and engaging in civic and community involvement.

        East Toledo Family Center executive director Jodi Gross did not know the real reason she was going to the Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce’s 25th Annual Prism Awards Tuesday.

        She did not even know she was going to the Prism Awards — she thought she was going out for a “relaxing dinner” with her husband, daughter and daughter’s family at a Japanese restaurant when they pulled into the Sunrise Banquet Center.

         Now that the Navarre Avenue Safety Improvements Project is completed, Oregon is planning on extending the project further east.

        “In budget talks, we did add some capital costs to do the same thing heading further east,” Public Service Director Paul Roman said at a recent Oregon City Council meeting. “We are planning that. There’s a few things I have ahead of that, like a water line replacement. We are lucky that we have a grant for that work, which is moving forward. That is our priority. But soon after that, we’ll start working on that design.”

        Oregon City Council recently approved an agreement for reimbursement of engineering and construction costs for the Clean Energy Future-Oregon power plant project.

        Clean Energy Future-Oregon LLC is developing a 955-Megawatt capacity combined cycle power generation facility within Oregon’s municipal boundaries, which will require a supply of potable water from Toledo’s water treatment plant.

        Clean Energy Future-Oregon LLC entered into a potable water purchase agreement with Toledo and Oregon, which will require the development of new water infrastructure. Once it is installed, it will deliver up to six million gallons per day to the facility from Toledo’s water plant.

       After public forums in February and March and a third session last week, Guy Parmigian, superintendent of the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District, says he’s getting a feel for how residents of B-C-S regard the district’s financial situation as Tuesday’s election nears.

        Voters will decide two levies: a 1 percent earned income tax and a 3.89-mill property tax that would generate about $1.98 million and $1.4 million a year respectively if passed. Both issues would be in effect for five years.

        Two levies on the same ballot requesting additional tax revenues is an anomaly for a school system that hasn’t hiked local taxes in about 18 years.
