        The Lucas County Board of Elections certified two of three candidates seeking reelection to the Oregon school board.

        There were no challengers to the three seats currently held by School Board President Carol Ann Molnar, Michael Csehi, and Heather Miller, all of whom are seeking reelection. The Lucas County Board of Elections certified the petitions of Molnar and Csehi by the August deadline. It did not certify Miller’s because she did not follow the requirements and guidelines regarding the petitions, according to LaVera R. Scott, director of the board of elections.

        A resolution asking the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to cease allowing the application of Class B biosolids on farmland in Lake Township has been approved by the township trustees.

        The trustees Tuesday unanimously approved the resolution, which states the sludge can run off from fields into creeks and rivers that drain into Lake Erie and exacerbate the lake’s algae problem.

        The Lake Township trustees have asked the township solicitor to review how a parcel along Woodville Road is being used by the owner of the Woodville Road Nursery to determine if a conditional use permit is required.

       The Ohio Department of Taxation has approved reappraised Wood County residential property values for 2017, according to Michael Sibbersen, county auditor.

        A special meeting of the Woodmore school board’s building and grounds committee has been scheduled for Thursday to review a nearly-complete project to replace the heating and air conditioning system at the high school.

        The committee is set to meet Sept. 14 at 4:30 p.m. in the high school lobby.

        Sam Preston, who chairs the committee, said a punch list for the project may be available for the committee in time for the meeting.
