Oregon City Council on Monday approved bids for the 2012 roads project, which includes the first phase of a multi-phased improvement of Dustin Road, which serves a commercial area.

Dustin Road Phase 1 consists of replacing approximately 1,247 feet of the existing “6” concrete pavement with a new “8” concrete pavement. The project will also include curbing, underdrains, curb inlet adjustments, driveway approaches, and sidewalk, including ADA-compliant curb ramps.

Mayor Mark Stoner and City Council this month interviewed three candidates for administrator.

The city received 40 resumes for the position, which has been vacant since May when former city administrator Dennis Recker abruptly resigned after just 19 months on the job.

The days are numbered for the Mandarin Chinese language program at Genoa schools.

The board of education has approved a $5,000 salary for Gue Yu to teach the Chinese 2 class at the high school beginning this fall, according to June 12 board meeting minutes.

First Federal Bank in Genoa has donated $250 to help the village police set up a drop off station for outdated prescription drugs.

Police Chief Bob Bratton confirmed the donation amount Friday, noting the cash will go toward the village’s share for the $650 box that will be mounted in the administration office lobby.

Two days after they’ve had a chance to tour the district’s new high school building, voters in the Lake School District will decide the fate of yet another operating levy.

A 6.75-mill, 3-year levy that will generate about $1.47 million annually if approved will be on the Aug. 7 ballot.
