New capital budget emphasizes roads, public safety

Toledo Mayor Michael P. Bell announced the city’s proposed 2013 capital improvement budget at a press conference with his directors, commissioners and safety forces leaders. 

Wednesday night, District 3 councilman Mike Craig planned to follow by hosting a town hall budget meeting at the Weber Block on Front and Main streets in East Toledo.

The City of Toledo’s capital improvement budget proposed submitted by Mayor Michael P. Bell does not include money for renovating swimming pools.

District 3 councilman Mike Craig said the future of Toledo’s pools remains in the air since a recreation levy did not pass on November 6. He says a steering committee is in the process of determining the pool’s future.

Genoa is wrapping up an environmental clean-up that began more than a decade ago.

The village bought the Varouh oil distribution site located at Fourth and Railroad streets behind the old MEP building on Ohio 163 more than 10 years ago. The company, based in Elyria, had closed operations there several years before.

The Village of Genoa has readjusted its quarry admission fees for 2013 and will likely ask patrons to fill out family swim pass applications.

In the past few years, some swimmers living outside the village have taken advantage of the amount of people being checked in on one pass, Leeann Dufendock, chairwoman of Genoa’s Park Advisory Board, recently informed village council.

The Oregon school board next year is expected to change the cutoff date by which 5 year olds can enter kindergarten.

The date would change from Sept. 31 to Aug. 1.
