Written by Larry Limpf

An agreement between Ohio farm organizations and a coalition of animal welfare advocates may be in jeopardy after a recent vote by the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board that permits the confinement of veal calves in crates so small they’re unable to turn around.

Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States, said the 6-5 vote by board members violates a provision of the agreement which phases out the use of veal crates and if the vote stands, the Humane Society may decide to renew a ballot initiative sponsored by the coalition.

Renovations totaling nearly $25,000 are expected to take place soon at the Genoa Senior Center.

Upgrades at the facility, located at 514 Main St. near Genoa Town Hall, include a new entryway, electronic doors, replacing the ADA ramp at the rear of the building, reinstalling a curb ramp in the front and miscellaneous carpentry necessary to make the repairs, according to Todd Bickley, director of the Ottawa Regional Planning Commission.

Costs are being shared by two sources. A $21,430 Community Development Grant, administered through the planning commission, covers the bulk of the project. The village will kick in another $3,875.
