Help for homeowners to battle ash borer
The WSOS Community Action Commission, Inc. is accepting applications until Nov. 24 for grants to assist with the removal of ash trees from residential property.

The removal program, which the commission is administering for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, is designed to assist homeowners in the fight to limit damage caused by the Emerald Ash Borer.

The program provides funds for removing one ash tree per property with additional removals allowed through matching grants. The program provides for 65 percent of the removal costs for households at or below 300 percent of the federal poverty income guidelines or half of the cost for households above the level.

WSOS has distributed application information to area local governments.

Interested persons should call Cindy Brookes, (419) 334-5016 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

 
Oregon - Caution urged at new bike lane configuration

Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian is urging the public to use caution at the Coy Road and Starr Avenue intersection due to a new bike lane configuration that is uncommon in the city.

The intersection was recently widened to accommodate dedicated left turn lanes on all approaches, a dedicated right turn lane for eastbound Starr Avenue, and a dedicated through lane for the eastbound Starr Avenue bike lane.

The eastbound approach to the Starr Avenue intersection was designed with a dedicated right turn lane as a result of the high volume of right turn movement to southbound Coy Road. The dedicated right turn lane is located to the right of the dedicated bike lane as required by the Ohio Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.

At the intersection, for eastbound traffic, bicyclists in the bike lane heading straight through Coy Road, and motorists turning right to southbound Coy Road, cross paths.

The bike lane configuration, more common in other communities with bike lanes, is new to Oregon.

Det. Mick Lento, of the Lake Township Police Department, has some straight forward advice for township residents: lock the doors of your garages and other residential buildings as well as your vehicles.

The township has been hit by a string of burglaries in recent weeks as thieves focus on garages, barns, and other out-buildings.

Det. Lento said a majority of the buildings involved in the burglaries had been left unlocked.

“We’re getting hit pretty hard,” he said. “We want to get the word out to the residents to secure their homes and buildings.”

Four of the residences hit were on or near Owens Road.

Hand and power tools, generators, and other equipment are being targeted although one resident had venison and fish taken from a freezer.
