Thomas Susor will be taking a seat on Oregon City Council next month.

Susor, who received 4,224 votes, according to unofficial results from the Lucas County Board of Elections, was the top vote getter in the General Election last Tuesday.

Mayor Mark Stoner, who won a fourth term as mayor on Tuesday, said he was a little worried this year whether voters would re-elect him or vote for his challenger, Councilman Dave Gallaher.

After all, Stoner presided over a tough third term, which included deep cuts in personnel and programs as a result of a decrease in the city’s income tax revenue. Also, he and other officials were named in a lawsuit filed by the widow of a resident who had to wait 28 minutes for a rescue squad to help him. He later succumbed in a hospital.

The Oregon school board on Tuesday agreed to fund limited transportation for Clay High School students.

The shuttle service will start in January, according to school board President Eric Heintschel.

“We’re going to implement busing in a limited capacity,” said Heintschel on Wednesday.

A major sewer project is the focus of much of his work day, says Keith Kruse, who’s been the village administrator in Woodville for a little more than a year.

The village is implementing what is called a Combined Sewer System Long Term Control Plan required by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.

Job and Family Services offices in Wood and Knox counties will embark next month on a collaborative effort to pool applications for food stamps, Medicaid, and other assistance programs.

Five other counties, Delaware, Hancock, Marion, Morrow, and Sandusky plan to join the project in January 2012 and Seneca County may join once it is up and running.
