        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.

        Financial assistance is available from the Ohio Water Pollution Control Loan Fund to help Ottawa County households repair or replace faulty septic systems.

        The Wood County Sheriff's Office has updated an earlier alert that it was seeking assistance in apprehending Franklin Paul Damon, Jr., on a charge of felony escape. Damon has been found.
