Lake Twp.., Walbridge - Dispatching service agreement in effect
Written by Larry Limpf   
Thursday, 08 April 2010 15:16

Lake Township has been given verbal approval to continue to provide emergency dispatching service for the Village of Walbridge, Mark Hummer, township police chief, said last week.

Village officials had received an offer from Wood County Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn for dispatching service for the village police department for approximately $31,000 a year but have indicated they will continue to contract with the township at a cost of $48,500 annually, Chief Hummer said, adding the agreement with the village will be on a month-to-month basis until a contract is signed.

In January, the township trustees renewed a one-year contract with LifeStar for dispatching service that included a 3 percent increase, raising the cost to $21,060 per month.

The company provides 24-hour dispatching service for fire, police, and emergency medical service calls. The service is shared by the township and village and City of Rossford with costs split by the percentage of calls for each.

 
Oregon Arbor Day to honor Betty Carstensen

Oregon will dedicate the planting of several trees to the late Betty Carstensen, a long time Oregon school board member, during its 16th annual Arbor Day Program, which will be held Friday, April 30, at 11 a.m. at the new Coy School off Pickle Road.

The public is invited to attend the event.

Several ornamental trees are being planted to surround the Living Memorial European Purple Beech tree, a joint project planted by the city and the Oregon City Schools District last November in honor of Mrs. Carstensen.

Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian has proclaimed the event the “Betty Carstensen Memorial Arbor Day.”

Carstensen was 85-years-old and finishing her fourth term on the board when she died last Sept. 5 following a stroke. She had served on the board since 1993 and had planned on running for a fifth term in November. She was a strong proponent of literacy education and spent many hours volunteering her time reading to elementary students.

 
Curtice man the ‘Cal Ripken’ of payroll specialists

Owens Community College interim president Dr. Larry McDougle relies on George Pollauf to pay his mortgage, car payments and grocery bills.

So do the professors in the history, law enforcement administration, psychology, computer science, social sciences, sociology and mathematics departments.

Pollauf is Owens' payroll specialist, and he takes his job very seriously.

"I'm dealing with peoples' livelihood," he said.

Pollauf, who lives in Curtice with his wife, Sandy, and their two daughters, has missed making Owens' payroll just once since 1985.

"Except for this past Friday pay of April 2, I processed almost all of the components — the checks and the deposit files — for literally every pay date I've been here," Pollauf said. "Last Friday would have been my 646th consecutive bi-weekly payroll."

If Pollauf doesn't do OCC's payroll that means someone else has to do it. That doesn't sit well with Pollauf, 51, who on July 1 will celebrate his 25th year at Owens. Ronald Reagan occupied the Oval Office when Pollauf took over as the payroll specialist at what was then known as Owens Technical College.
