The second Denny’s restaurant in Wood County will open Sunday, October 31, 8:00 pm at the Flying J Travel Plaza at 26415 Warns Road in Perrysburg, just off Interstate 280 at exit 16.
  
The new restaurant is one of 140 locations opening in Flying J Travel Centers across the country during the next two years.  Denny’s also plans to open approximately 50 restaurants over the next several years in Pilot Travel Centers.
  
“We’re excited to bring another Denny’s restaurant to the residents of Perrysburg and Wood County,” Jack Thompson, owner of the new Denny’s in Perrysburg, said. “Denny’s is an American favorite, and we expect our restaurant’s 24-hour operation and menu variety to appeal to both local residents and visitors alike.”

 
Northwood council debates need for more cuts

Northwood City Council on Oct. 14 continued to debate the need for more budget cuts, with some questioning whether further cuts could be made without having a serious impact on city services.
 
Council several weeks ago approved placing a .25 percent municipal income tax increase for three years on the November ballot to counter sluggish income tax revenue collected by the city in the last year. The revenue would provide funds for capital improvements, capital reinvestment and operating expenses.
 
The city, which currently has a 1.5 percent income tax rate, would see the rate rise to 1.75 percent if the proposal passes.
 
Council has made deep cuts in the budget and in personnel in nearly every department, including police, fire, and streets, this year.
 
As Election Day looms, Council President Jim Barton, who is opposed to a tax increase, thought more could be cut from the budget.

 
Reps. call for review of EPA mandates

Is it time to change the funding criteria for sewer separation projects mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency so communities aren’t left overwhelmed financially by project costs?
 
A bi-partisan group of congressional representatives thinks so.
 
Nine members of congress, including Robert Latta, (R-Bowling Green), is asking the EPA to update its 13-year-old set of rules for scheduling projects to separate combined storm and sanitary sewer systems and assessing the financial capabilities of communities undertaking the projects.
 
The representatives are asking the chairman and ranking member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to have the EPA update its guidance document that was adopted in 1997 for combined sewer overflows.
 
“…EPA has increased the number of enforcement actions it is pursuing against communities with combined sewer systems. In pursuing these enforcement actions, EPA often requires communities to undertake projects to correct these events often seeking rate increases that amount to 2 percent of the ratepayer’s Median Household Income,” a letter from the representatives to the chairmen says.
 
Relying on median income as the primary indicator of financial ability doesn’t accurately reflect a community’s ability to undertake the projects or correspond to “an equally determinable water quality improvement,” the letter says.
