Doctor needed on county health board
The Wood County District Advisory Council is looking for a county physician to serve on the board of health. Board members must live in the county and may not hold an elected office. Members are appointed for a five-year term.

State law requires at least one member of the board to be a licensed medical professional who is either an MD (Doctor of Medicine) or a DO (Doctor of Osteopathy). Interested physicians may contact the Health Commissioner, Pamela Butler, at 419-352-8402.

A vacancy was created after the resignation of Dr. Steve Dood, past president and member of the board since 1998.

Time Warner Cable has submitted an application for authorization to be a video service provider in Oregon as well as in other communities, according to Oregon Law Director Paul Goldberg.

Change orders to meet new building codes, upgrade lighting systems, install a metal roof, and other items for the township administration building under construction were approved Tuesday by the Lake Township trustees.

In all, the changes total more than $177,000, including tax and other fees, but much of that will be covered by the township’s replacement insurance as well as credits, Mark Hummer, township administrator, told the trustees.

The cost of the 22-gauge mechanically seamed metal roof and gutters and trim totals $165,200 but credits for shingles, labor, and gutters reduces that to $129,764.

The change orders were submitted by Rudolph/Libbe, the general contractor for the construction project, which is scheduled for completion in May.
