In its Oct. 17 and Oct. 24 editions, The Press published its Voters’ Guide for the November 8 General Election that included candidate profiles in Northwood and Oregon. In the Oct. 24 edition of The Press, Oregon city council and school board candidates answered a series of questions posed by The Press regarding issues facing the community. The Voters’ Guide published seven of eight Oregon city council candidates’ answers to the questions. The answers of Mike Sheehy, an incumbent councilman who is also president of council, were accidentally omitted. The Press regrets the error. Here are Sheehy’s answers to the questions:

Oregon City Council will hold a public hearing at 8 p.m. on Nov. 18 in council chambers on Seaman Road on a request for a Special Use Permit for outside storage of car dealership vehicles at 2200 Woodville Road.

The Oregon Planning Commission at a meeting last month recommended approval, with some specifications.

Although a final decision has not yet been made, Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian is focusing on Mike Navarre as the city’s next police chief.

Navarre recently retired as police chief in Toledo.

Saying the state’s position in a lawsuit over where lakefront property is public or private wasn’t substantially justified, the Ohio Lakefront Group is asking to be compensated for attorney fees and related expenses incurred in the seven-year legal battle that reached the Ohio Supreme Court.

The group, which represents about 7,000 residents owning property along Lake Erie, filed a motion in Lake County Common Pleas Court recently seeking $509,453 in attorney fees and $68,791 in expenses.

Since 2005, the City of Oregon had shown interest in purchasing the 15-acre Tschann property for a passive park.

Instead, George and Carrie Tschann are donating the land to Kateri Catholic Academy and Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School.
