Oregon City Council at its last council meeting in February approved a three-year agreement with FirstEnergy Solutions Corp. to act as the city’s electricity aggregation supplier.

The rate was negotiated by the Northwest Ohio Aggregation Coalition (NOAC), of which the city is a member. The three year term starts in June of this year to June of 2020.

Oregon council recently approved the purchase of three vehicles for the police department.

Mathews Ford provided the best overall quote for the purchase of the three 2017 Ford Utility Police Interceptor vehicles at a cost of $29,411 per vehicle, for a total of $88,233. An allowance for a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria at $3,000, a 2013 Chevy Caprice at $6,500 and another 2013 Chevy Caprice at $7,500, provided a trade-in credit of $17,000, bringing the total final cost of the purchase down to $71,233.

The Sandusky County commissioners have voiced their support for the continued operation of  the DavisBesse Nuclear Power Station, approving a resolution Tuesday that, in turn, backs a similar resolution passed last month by the Ottawa County Improvement Corp.

 Both resolutions note that FirstEnergy Corp. has announced its intention to exit the energy generation component of its business either by closing or selling its coal and nuclear plants in Ohio and Pennsylvania if the states don’t establish a format for re-regulating them and setting rates.

 Is it time for a 40-year-old road maintenance agreement between the Village of Walbridge and Lake Township to be amended?  

The issue arose as to whether the township or village is responsible for maintaining the stretch of Drouillard Road south of the village after a motorist recently mentioned to a township trustee that the lane stripes on the road were difficult to see at night during a rain storm.

 A resolution of support for a proposal to develop a series of corridors crossing Ohio as numbered bicycle routes has been approved by the Lake Township trustees.

 The trustees approved the resolution Tuesday after hearing a presentation by Christine Connell, a transportation administration specialist with the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments, who said the proposed Ohio route is part of a national corridor that links Montana to Massachusetts.
