The formation of a Special Weapons and Tactics team to service northern Wood County is proceeding.

The Lake Township trustees Tuesday approved a resolution to reimburse Perrysburg Township $5,580 for the bulk purchase of vests and helmets for the team, which will include police officers from Lake and Perrysburg townships, City of Northwood, Village of Walbridge, Owens Community College, and CSX Rail Co.

 

Residents of the Oregon City School District gave their opinions on what is wrong with the school district during a public forum Thursday at the Clay High auditorium.

The district held the forum to seek feedback on a community survey conducted in November. The survey was distributed by The Press along with the Oregon Oracle, the district’s newspaper. A total of 295 questionnaires were completed and returned. The study’s confidence level is 95 percent, which means that in 95 cases out of 100, the survey results would represent the preferences of all district residents had they all responded to the survey. The survey, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.7 percent, was conducted in collaboration with a communications consultant and district personnel.

Under the revised laws, which went into effect last month, if there is reasonable cause and a dog meets the definition, a dog warden or law enforcement officer will be required to designate a dog as a nuisance, dangerous, and/or vicious, said Snyder, adding all unprovoked dog bites will also result in the dog’s automatic designation as a dangerous or vicious dog.
