Oregon City Council on Monday approved contracts for sanitary sewer manhole rehabilitation projects that will improve drainage in the city.

Public Service Director Paul Roman said the projects will remove storm water inflow and infiltration.

Yvonne Ramos, of Oregon, is a very busy woman.

By day, she teaches Spanish to 3- to 5-year-olds through the EOPA Day Care Academy. She is also mother of two children – daughter Savannah, a sixth-grader at Fassett Middle School, and son, Anthony, age 4.

By night, as well as on some weekends, she is an up and coming singer/songwriter playing gigs in Toledo, Detroit, Pontiac, Lansing, Saginaw, Los Angeles and Chicago.

An investigation by the Walbridge Police Department into a rash of reported breaking and entering cases has yielded a suspect.

Police Chief Kenneth Frost said his department is seeking an arrest warrant.

Some on Oregon council Monday praised the city’s One Call Now system for alerting the public to flash floods following a heavy rain storm on Monday.

One Call Now, an emergency notification system that the city contracted with two years ago, had annoyed some residents last August with repeated automated phone calls, many of which were for weather watches rather than warnings.

 In an article that appeared in The Press last week on the election results of Oregon city council, it should have said Councilman Terry Reeves won re-election with a total of 3,916 votes. The Press regrets the error.
