When Rosalina and Ted Hubler decided to relocate their business, R&T Microcenters & Laserchargers, from Telegraph Road to a smaller location on Alexis Road in the New Towne Square Plaza, they knew something would have to go.

As they packed up their inventory for the quarter-mile move, they decided the tubs and tubs containing more than 3,000 of the once-coveted Ty Beanie Babies needed to find a new home.

Collecting costs for items like guardrails and stop signs that are damaged in accidents just got a little easier for the Ottawa County Engineer’s Office.

Ottawa County Commissioners recently agreed to let the engineer’s office join the new debt collection program offered by the office of Ohio Attorney General’s Office Mike DeWine.

Vacancy on Pemberville council

Residents of the Village of Pemberville interested in filling a vacancy on village council should submit a letter to the council by June 18 at 4:30 p.m. to be considered.

The letter of interest should cite the resident’s qualifications and be sent to: Pemberville Village Council, P.O. Box 169, Pemberville, O. 43450.

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.”
