Northwood Councilman Dave Gallaher is throwing his hat in the mayor’s race.

It is the third time Gallaher, 53, will try to defeat Stoner for the city’s top spot.

Gallaher, who has been a councilman since 1994, said he is running for mayor simply because he thinks he can do a better job addressing issues facing the city.

When native east sider Gary Thompson was hired as the executive director of the Oregon Economic Development Foundation in the spring of 2006, the Veterans Glass City Skyway was still under construction.

“We have a great bridge being built,” Thompson said. “It’s going to bring a lot of business to Navarre Avenue, even through it’s been a painful process.”

Grant funds for sewer hook-ups available
About $20,000 in grant funding is still available for qualifying home-owners in the Stony Ridge, Lemoyne, and Troy Township areas where sanitary sewer lines were recently installed by the Northwestern Water and Sewer District.

The grant money is being used to help pay for the construction of lateral lines between homes and the sewer lines.

Tony Packo’s Cafe Chief Operating Officer Rob Horvath says semi-trucks are illegally using Consaul Street in East Toledo’s Birmingham neighborhood.

In a letter obtained by The Press that Horvath wrote to District 3 councilman Mike Craig, the COO stated, “I was about to pull away from Packo’s at 11:40 a.m. today when a semi drove past and was headed east (towards Oregon) on Consaul Street. I decided to follow to see its destination point. Per our discussion in the parking lot yesterday, I suspected that the increase in heavy truck traffic on Consaul was not Toledo bound but rather Oregon bound.
