Oregon City Council on Monday will consider an application to the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) for financial assistance from the State Capital Improvements Fund and the Local Transportation Improvement Program Fund for improvements to the wastewater treatment plant at 1570 Dupont Road.

Northwood City Council at a meeting on Sept. 27 agreed to write a letter to officials at FedEx Freight, Inc., to ask if local contractors could be hired as part of the company’s expansion project.

Several local building contractors, prior to council’s decision, showed up at the meeting to complain that FedEx Freight, Inc., is using out of town contractors to build the 135,000-square-foot facility in Northwood.

A permanent improvement levy will be up for renewal on the Nov. 6 ballot in the Woodmore School District - but at a lower millage amount than when originally approved.

Voters will decide a 3-mill, 5-year issue that, if passed, will generate about $425,000 annually, said Kevin Slates, district treasurer.

Voters arriving at an East Toledo Family Center-hosted levy forum Wednesday wanted to find reasons why they should support seven levies on the November 6 ballot.

Representatives for each of the Toledo and Lucas County levies were on hand as Press Newspapers General Manager John Szozda moderated.

Six new members will be inducted into the Birmingham Hall of Fame at the 36th Annual Inductee and Scholarship Banquet Sunday, Oct. 21 at St. Stephen School Hall, 2018 Consaul St. Toledo.

The celebration will begin at 4:30 p.m. with a social hour. The “World Famous Chicken Paprika and Pig-in-the-Blanket” dinner will be served family-style at 6 pm. Guest speaker for this event is Tricia Cullop, Women’s Head Basketball Coach for the University of Toledo Rockets.
