Homeowners and investors in East Toledo and Oregon can learn how they can increase their property values when county treasurer Wade Kapszukiewicz talks abut the county’s new land bank program Thursday, January 20 at the Weber Block, Front and Main in East Toledo.

Overgrown lots, vacant or dilapidated houses and abandoned industrial or commercial property can all bring down home values restricting your ability to borrow money or sell your home.

Kapszukiewicz will talk about the new Lucas County Land Reutilization Corporation, which will have the power to acquire and sell foreclosed tax delinquent properties without going through the long court process leading to a sheriff’s sale.

Pay raises of 2 percent for non-union employees of Lake Township were approved by the board of trustees during their final meeting of 2010.

Melanie Bowen, who chairs the board, said the increase is in line with raises given earlier to officers in the police department who are unionized.

The officers are in the second year of a three-year contract, she said.

The trustees also extended the contract for another year with Mark Hummer, the trustees’ administrative assistant. He will be paid $1,000 a month – an increase from $800 monthly.

He is also the township’s police chief.

 
Oregon council to look at changing sign code

Oregon may be revising part of the city’s sign code to allow electronic changeable copy for businesses.

Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian said at a recent council meeting that he’s received many requests from businesses seeking changes in the sign code dealing with changeable copy.

“The trend nowadays is that signs are LED enhanced, or lit with LED lights,” said Seferian. “We want a starting point to get this into action, so we would actually look forward to seeing council put this into committee so it could be discussed thoroughly so people could be comfortable with the final product. But we do think it’s something needed for our sign code because it seems to be a little antiquated without it.”
