Lake Township police executed arrest warrants Monday at the Woodville Road home of two persons indicted for their role in an alleged drug ring operating in northwest Ohio.

Neil Cannon and Jill Cannon were taken into custody at their residence at 1539 Woodville Road in Lake Township.

The Oregon Planning Commission last month approved a variance on a parking lot landscaping buffer for property at 2200 Woodville Road.

The Commission last year had unanimously approved a Special Use Exception (SUE) in a C-2 Commercial District for the property owner, James Duran, who wants to use the site as a storage lot for car dealership vehicles. The Commission had approved the SUE with the Project Review Committee’s recommendation for a landscaping buffer on the lot.

Oregon City Council approved an agreement to purchase a portion of property at 7055 Corduroy Road for $20,000 for the Wolf Creek Riparian Corridor.

The city was awarded a $62,391 Coastal Management Assistance Grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources about two years ago to develop a Wolf Creek-Berger Ditch Corridor Restoration Plan and to buy a portion of property along Wolf Creek and improve drainage for the Wolf Creek Watershed.

Some Northwood council members, in the wake of the closing of the Woodville Mall, want the city to establish an economic development position to boost growth.

At a meeting last month, Councilman Dave Gallaher, chairman of the Economic Development Committee, said the city needs to step up and promote economic development.

A few measures to cut costs or increase revenue that were set to go into effect this summer in the Genoa school system will be delayed after the board of education Monday conducted a review of the district’s financial situation.

Board members informally agreed to not impose a fee for the district’s all-day everyday kindergarten program, said treasurer Bill Nye.
