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.
Dealing with the unexpected a part of life
There are many areas of the country that are prone to certain natural phenomena. People living in these areas know if they are flood prone, in tornado alley, have to be concerned about hurricanes, or are likely to be hit by sever snow storms.
The Oregon school board, by a vote of 3-2, on Tuesday renewed the contracts of several administrators earlier than planned, despite the anticipated loss of $3 million in revenue in 2013, and $11 million in 2016.
The reduction in revenue is due to lower property valuations, a tax appeal from Toledo Edison’s Bay Shore power plant, the partial closure of the plant, and a loss in “hold harmless” payments from the state.
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.
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.
