Letters are being mailed to about 250 property owners in Troy Township advising them the Northwestern Water and Sewer District is terminating its contract with Deer Creek Excavating, the general contractor for a $6 million sanitary sewer project in the Stony Ridge and Lemoyne areas of the township.

A draft of the letter obtained by The Press says Deer Creek’s “failure to finish the project” left the district’s board of trustees no choice but to remove them from this project now to require their bonding company to step forward and complete this properly.”

Some members of Oregon City Council showed their frustration that the city still has not been able to install sidewalks along Navarre Avenue from Coy to Lallendorf roads.

“I would like to see it go forward because it’s an important project to do,” Councilman Sandy Bihn said at a meeting last month. She has raised the issue before for safety reasons.

“As far as I’m concerned, it’s time to move forward,” said Councilman Mike Sheehy. “Let’s get moving. It’s something we need to do.”

A Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and money in a Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) will be used by Oregon to pay for sewer rehabilitation and drainage improvements.

Council approved the ordinance at a meeting on Monday.

The city has received $60,000 in CDBG funds for 2012.

The Oregon school board will consider expanding the number of bus or shuttle stops for Clay High School students for the 2012-2013 school year.

The shuttle, which currently makes 12 stops, will make another five if the board approves, according to Dean Sandwisch, director of business affairs for the district.

An on-going dispute over parking and access to a garage in a Lake Township neighborhood has resulted in the arrest of an 84-year-old township man.

Police on June 12 charged James A. Caswell, of Cramer Street, after he allegedly slapped the arm of a township police officer who’d been called to a Kearsley Street property where Caswell was involved in a dispute over vehicles parked in the driveway to a garage he uses.
