Twp. association to fight tax exemption bill


The Ohio Township Association is alerting its membership to a bill the association fears could become a drain on township property tax revenues.

A developer’s application to re-plat a Lake Township subdivision that was submitted in April of last year to the Wood County Planning Commission may finally be decided now that the county prosecutor’s office has weighed in on the matter.

DMWW Properties LLC submitted the request for parcels in the Freedom Estates subdivision, asking the planning commission to approve re-platting two residential lots covering about 1.66 acres. The developer also requested a variance for an open green space in the subdivision equal to about 80 percent of what is required under the county’s regulations for subdivisions.

A survey of residents in East Toledo’s Birmingham neighborhood revealed that 32 percent of residents have experienced vandalism in a six-month period.

Twenty-eight percent experienced vandalism or theft inside their home, and 50 percent know of a neighbor who was a victim.

Scrappers, sliced tires, drug deals, and boom boxes

Last summer, businessman Rob Horvath complained that semi-trucks were illegally using Consaul Street in East Toledo’s Birmingham neighborhood.

Tuesday night at the Birmingham Library, residents told Toledo Police Chief Derrick Diggs that 18-wheel trucks are still finding their way down Consaul un-ticketed and often unnoticed by police.

Oregon school board members Jeff Ziviski and P.J. Kapfhammer want to increase the pick-up locations for the new bus shuttle service for Clay High School students.

The shuttle service, which started last week, has 12 pick-up points. Clay High School students have gone without busing since last year when it was eliminated by the board due to budget constraints. The board later agreed to provide limited transportation to high school students, saying the district’s finances had improved enough to provide the bus shuttle.
