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.

Oregon is looking at increasing the sanitary sewer rates next year to help cover the cost of sanitary sewer maintenance lines.

The issue came up during council’s discussion at a committee of the whole meeting on Monday of the annual assessment for the owners’ share of the cost of maintaining sanitary sewer lines, pipes, and conduits at a total of $189,809.10 in 2011.

Council on Monday will consider a resolution to get sidewalks installed along Navarre Avenue from Coy to Lallendorf roads to help elderly and disabled pedestrians get to Wal-Mart and other stores and shops in the area.

The project, which will be funded through assessments of area property owners, has been held up since last year because not enough signatures were obtained on petitions in support of the sidewalks.
