Bench, Sheahan unseat Gray, Graffis; levy loses

Newcomers David Bench and Ron Sheahan will take their seats on the Jerusalem Township board of trustees next year, while a police levy that would have funded current police services from the sheriff’s department was defeated on Tuesday.

Bench and Sheahan unseated incumbents Joe Gray and Rodney Graffis.

Bench, 59, is a self-employed farmer at Bench Farms. He received the top vote, 974 votes, or 41.10 percent of the vote cast.

Bench attributed his win to name recognition of his business, and voters’ desire for change.

“I’ve been going to the meetings for about a year, and nothing ever seemed to get done,” he said. “I kept telling trustees that they work for the people. We pay their wages.”

Sheahan, 45, is a project manager at Dimech Services, Inc. He received 581 votes, or 24.51 percent of the vote.

Eastwood now focuses on building improvements
The Eastwood administration will be assembling a panel to map out a plan for improvements to the district’s elementary buildings, superintendent Brent Welker said Wednesday after voters rejected a local bond issue that would have leveraged state funds for a new school.

“Now that we are going to be in these buildings for the foreseeable future, we will be looking to put a group together to look at how we can best work to extend their useful life,” he said. “The goal will be to develop a plan and a cost analysis for making needed improvements to the infrastructure of each building.”

Voters last week said no to a 2.64-mill bond levy and an 0.75-mill permanent improvement levy that would have been used to construct and maintain a new elementary school on the central campus.

According to unofficial results of the Wood County Board of Elections, 2,154 (59.1 percent) voted against the levy and 1,489 (40.8 percent) voted for it.

Many landowners with property enrolled in the Current Agricultural Use Valuation program have been surprised this year to see their values have significantly increased – in some cases more than doubling.

Now landowners in Ottawa and Sandusky counties can learn why.

A workshop to discuss rising CAUV property values, sponsored by Ottawa County Auditor Jo Ellen Regal and Sandusky County Auditor William Farrell, will be held Nov. 12 in the multipurpose room at Riverview Healthcare Campus, 8180 W. State Route 163, Oak Harbor.

The workshop begins at 7 p.m.

The auditors have invited Larry Gearhardt, Director of Local Affairs for the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, to discuss updates in the state’s data used to determine CAUV land values.
