Trade center, beer distributor new in Northwood

A Toledo man is planning on opening a trading center in the former Value City Furniture Store at the Great Eastern Shopping Center.

Norm Eisen, of Toledo, will call the center Stormin Normin, which will feature vendors who will sell their goods, according to Northwood Administrator Pat Bacon.

The Plan Commission was cautions about the proposal, she said, out of concerns it would be a flea market.

“We already had a request like that, and it was turned down,” said Bacon. “We don’t want anything tacky or fly by night, with someone setting up card tables to sell their wares. But this is supposed to be a higher caliber shop.”

Eisen went to the board of zoning appeals to get approval for signage, said Bacon.

The Plan Commission has given approval, but with conditions, according to Kimberly Grames, the city’s planning, zoning and economic development coordinator.

“The Plan Commission approved a conditional use permit for one year,” said Grames. Among the conditions: Eisen will have to report to the Plan Commission quarterly “to let them know how things are going,” said Grames.

 
In Lake Twp. - Fiscal officer cautious about 2010

Few people will be waiting for Wood County’s distribution of real estate taxes next year with more apprehension than Vicki Schwamberger.

The Lake Township fiscal officer advised the board of trustees Tuesday that the township’s financial condition was “stable” but she had some reservations about 2010.

The trustees Tuesday approved temporary appropriations for the first quarter of the year totaling $1.92 million – the same amount appropriated for the first three months of this year.

Even with a carry-over in revenues of about $2.3 million to next year, Schwamberger said the trustees will have to be on a tight budget until the township receives its first allocation of property taxes sometime in March.  And even then, with the real estate market still shaky, there is no guarantee revenues will be robust.

“We’ll have to watch our nickels and dimes,” she said, noting the township still owes on a 2007 fire engine.

 
In Woodville - New councilman settling in

With about seven meetings under his belt, Dennis Fetzer, who was appointed to a seat on Woodville Village Council in September, says he’s becoming more comfortable with the responsibilities of the office.

Fetzer said he applied for the open seat because, “I wanted to help make a difference in Woodville.  To be specific, I wanted to help make Woodville a better community to live, shop, and work.”

When asked what he thought it would be like as a member of council, he stated: “With the new sewer separation project about to begin, I anticipated many long committee meetings and legislative decisions needed to be made.”

He replaced Bob Hathaway, who submitted his resignation in August, citing a planned move to Florida.

Village Solicitor Bob Kuhlman swore Fetzer into office on Sept. 14.  He was the only nomination from council to fill the position. Mayor Richard Harman then appointed him to be the chairman of the Recreation and Parks Development Committee and to be a member of the Environmental, Planning and Community Development Committee and Public Safety Committee.
