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.

Oregon will be making a decision on whether to withhold revenue from the recently passed senior levy, have the levy rescinded, or use the money for the senior center during the city’s budget process this year.

“We’re going to be preparing the 2014 budget this year,” said Mayor Mike Seferian. “We’ll have to ask council for some direction, whether to collect the money or not collect the money. We have to have an answer and push a response out of them. We’re in the process of preparing the budget right now.”

Councilwoman Sandy Bihn had at the last council meeting on Nov. 11 requested financial and performance audits of the senior center after she learned that inaccurate information may have been used in a campaign to get the 0.5 mill levy passed on Nov. 7 for the James “Wes Hancock Senior Center on Bay Shore Road.

Oregon resident Mary Kellerbougher was not diagnosed with multiple sclerosis until she was 40-years-old.

“I had this fatigue that I couldn’t figure out what was going on,” Kellerbougher said. “I was a mom with young kids and working full time and working on my master’s degree. This was a new fatigue that as a nurse I could not figure out exactly what it was, so we were trying to pinpoint what it was. When you say you have fatigue there isn’t very many things you can do.

“Then, one Friday I developed numbness in my chin, and by Monday it was in my arm, and by Thursday it was in my leg and I was diagnosed on Friday. I have weakness, I have numbness, I have lost some things cognitively, like memory loss, and the fatigue is the biggest thing.”
