After only a year on Genoa Village Council, Brian Best has resigned his seat.

Best informed his peers Monday at the first regular council meeting of the month that it would be his last meeting. His official last day was Aug. 13.

Members of the Lake school board haven’t decided whether to file a complaint about what they describe as “irregularities” at a precinct polling location during the special election Tuesday.

Board president Tim Krugh said Wednesday he believes there was an attempt to “discourage some pretty supportive voters” of the district but the board would address the matter later.

The Toledo Area Humane Society (TAHS) still has many kittens and cats up for adoption and close to 200 currently in foster homes.  

The TAHS, in an effort to find them homes, is holding a “Kitten Shower” on Saturday, August 11 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. All cats and kittens will have their adoption fees reduced to $5.

Eastwood looks to online program to help revenues

Eastwood school superintendent Brent Welker is giving a “heads up” to residents of the Wood County district about a looming loss of revenues as the district receives its last semi-annual payment of $240,000 from a property tax abatement agreement with Troy Energy.

Although they’re savoring the passage of a 6.75-mill operating levy, members of the Lake school board took the precautionary step Tuesday evening of voting to proceed with a levy on the November ballot.

Tim Krugh, board president, said Wednesday that results of the special election – which saw the levy approved by a 137-vote margin, 1,501 for to 1,364 against – won’t be certified until late August but the board faced a deadline last week for placing an issue before voters in November.
