Oregon City Council at a meeting earlier this month established the city as an Energy Special Improvement District (ESID).

In June, 2010, the Ohio Legislature passed a bill that allows for the establishment of ESIDs. Property owners within the district can pay for energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements on their properties by way of special assessments. The process is voluntary. Property owners are not required to participate.

The non-profit shelter has promoted the reduced rates at different periods this summer with great success.

A planned investment next year in the dispatching system operated by the Wood County Sheriff’s Department was a factor in the county commissioners’ decision to join in discussions with entities in the northern part of the county on forming a regional emergency dispatching format.
