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.

A brief section of the Wood County Poll Worker Manual led to some confusion Tuesday at a precinct in Lake Township where voters are deciding a 6.75-mill school operating levy.

When Lee Herman, high school principal, went to vote shortly after 7 a.m. at precinct 420 in the township administration building, he was wearing a dark blue short-sleeved shirt with the Lake logo.

Verizon Wireless, which wants to install a cell phone tower on two acres of a city owned 20-acre parcel at 7150 Cedar Point Road, will look for another site at that location after a setback variance was denied by the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA).

Demolition of more than 20 blighted or abandoned homes is expected to be underway in the next 18 months in Ottawa County thanks to a collaborative effort with the state attorney general’s office.

“It will be exciting. I think it will make such a difference for the community,” said Stephanie Lowe, director of the Ottawa County Housing Board.
