The Oregon school board is considering establishing regular committee of the whole meetings as a way to thoroughly discuss issues facing the district before voting at upcoming board meetings.

“As you can see this evening, we’re having a problem of communicating all the information that is brought forth at the regular business meeting at the school board,” Diana Gadus, vice president of the school board, said at a board meeting on Feb. 21.

The Oregon City Schools District is facing an $11 million deficit in 2016, according to Treasurer Jane Fruth at a school board meeting last Tuesday.

The district will have to pass a levy before then to avoid the deficit. She said.

The president of Walbridge Village Council says the vote by him and two other councilmembers to not excuse the absence of Mayor Dan Wilczynski from the Feb. 15 council meeting reflects an attempt to improve communication between council and the mayor’s office.

Ed Kolanko, who, as council president assumes the responsibilities of acting mayor when the mayor is out of town on personal business, said last week he’s repeatedly asked Mayor Wilczynski to provide his business travel schedule for him and others on council.

The Village of Genoa has applied for a solid waste management district grant to help pay for a pirate ship play structure at a municipal playground.

The structure, created by the Akron-firm Bright Idea Shops, cost about $7,000. The village would be expected to pay for about half the cost, said Village Administrator Kevin Gladden.

Oregon police are investigating the break-ins last week of seven trailers at 159 N. Lallendorf Road.

The thefts occurred on Friday, Feb. 17.

The trailers were located behind a business for storage, according to Oregon Police Sgt. Tim Zale.
