A resolution to place a millage request on the November ballot to fund police department operations was approved Tuesday by the Lake Township trustees.

Rather than a renewal, the trustees agreed to place a 1.4-mill replacement levy before voters, meaning the levy, if approved, will be based on current property valuations in the unincorporated area of the township instead of the valuations when it was first passed in the early 1980s.

So what hasn't Waite graduate Holly Vargo-Brown accomplished during her long involvement with Ohio State synchronized swimming team?

“With a coffee mug in one hand and a bright smile on her face, she is a renaissance coach, just doing it all. Not only is she one of the most important pieces to the Buckeyes' success over the past 19 seasons, but she is constantly on call, doing all the little things that make any intercollegiate program run smoothly and successfully,” states an OSU athletics biography.

The Lake Township trustees have scheduled a hearing for July 17 to consider a zoning application from McIIvaine, Inc. to rezone about 7.2 acres on Lemoyne Road.

The company wants to change the zoning from R-2 residential to B-3 Highway for the property at 30555 Lemoyne Rd.

The hearing is scheduled to start at 6 p.m.

Demolition has begun on the Genoa High School gymnasium.

The court and its facilities won’t be available for student use until Dec. 6, according to school superintendent Dennis Mock.

Construction will affect five girls basketball games and three boys games on the fall schedule for the 2012-13 school year, he added. The athletic director will schedule those games as away events.

Genoa voters can expect a park levy renewal on the fall ballot.

Village officials are awaiting the Ottawa County auditor’s office certification of the paperwork turned in for the 1.3-mill, five-year renewal levy. That certification will tell how much the levy will generate annually for the village as well as how much the average homeowner can expect to pay, village administrator Kevin Gladden said.
