A proposed ballot issue that requests Ohioans approve $1.3 billion annually over 10 years to fund clean energy projects is closer to being on the November 2014 general election ballot.

The initiative petition, submitted by a committee for a group call Yes for Ohio’s Energy Future, was certified Tuesday by the Ohio Ballot Board as containing one proposed constitutional amendment.

On Monday, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine certified the petition, entitled The Ohio Clean Energy Initiative, as containing the required 1,000 valid signatures of registered voters and is a “fair and truthful” summary of the proposed amendment.

A consolidation of emergency dispatching services for Lake Township, the villages of Millbury and Walbridge, and cities of Rossford and Northwood would be a better format to meet changes for the 9-1-1 system being planned by the state, according to Mark Hummer, township police chief, who has presented the results of a feasibility study on consolidating the services to local elected officials.

In his presentation Tuesday to the township trustees, Chief Hummer said a state steering committee report to the Ohio legislature says the 9-1-1 system is due for an overhaul, including the implementation of what is called Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) technology that is able to take calls from a wide range of digital media and a review of current funding models.
