        The City of Oregon is receiving a low interest loan from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to reduce storm water infiltration and inflow (I&I) into the city’s sanitary sewer, eliminating sanitary sewer overflows and improving water quality in Maumee Bay.

        The funds are from the Ohio EPA’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF).

Jodi Gross, a long-time advocate for East Toledo, has been named the new executive director of the East Toledo Family Center.

What would you do if your dog or cat came up missing? For many people, posting and asking for help on Facebook may be the best way to get your pet back quickly.
The social media site is home to several groups who work hard to find lost pets and to pick up strays and get them to a safe place. Pages like Toledo Area Lost and Found Pets, Still Missing, Toledo Area Humane Society (TAHS), Lucas County Canine Care and Control (LC4) and a multitude of Facebook community and garage sale pages are loaded with posts of missing pets as well as posts from those helping to find the lost animals. 

        Lake Township officials said they are satisfied a parcel of land along Woodville Road being used to temporarily store large piles of leaves is in compliance with the township’s zoning regulations.

        Jim Mlynek, owner of Woodville Road Nursery, invited township officials to his business Wednesday to explain how he is converting leaves from several area municipalities and the township into compost.

Oregon’s Drainage, Roads, Buildings and Lands Committee will hold a public hearing on Aug. 28 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss whether there should be a property maintenance code for the city.
