Some clothing donation/collection boxes on commercial properties, especially along Woodville Road, will be removed in Northwood, according to City Administrator Bob Anderson, because they are becoming an eyesore.

“I’ve had a number of complaints about the proliferation of clothing collection boxes,” Anderson said at a Nov. 7 council meeting. “I’ve looked at it, and decided to direct the zoning department to send out notices to the owners of the properties indicating these boxes are non-permissible accessory structures, especially in our Central Business District. We’re going to start taking them out and storing them.”

A diverse group of agencies and organizations has backed an amendment to a bill pending in the Ohio Senate, contending its amendment is a better compromise to Senate Bill 58, which would change the state’s electric utility law passed in 2008 that promotes alternative energy sources.

The group says its compromise will better protect Ohio manufacturers, businesses and residential users from higher electricity prices while continuing to provide the benefits of energy efficiency to all consumers.

SB 58 is working its way through the Senate Public Utilities Committee and has had several hearings.

An attorney for the owners of the Woodville Mall claims a court ordered demolition plan was submitted to the Northwood by the August deadline, but city officials ignored it.

Adam Burke, attorney for the mall owners, said the plan had actually been filed several days before the deadline.

“This is a land grab for the city,” Burke said in a prepared statement. “The owners cannot complete the demolition on the property without a city permit. And the city has blocked us at every turn.”
