Board prepares for bond issue on Nov. ballot
Written by Larry Limpf

Now that voters have approved an emergency operating levy, the Woodmore school board is turning its attention to a bond issue for the November ballot that would leverage state funding to help pay for the construction of a new building.

A resolution to proceed with putting a bond issue request on the Nov. 3 ballot was approved last week by the school board.

The resolution authorizes the district to issue bonds totaling about $19.5 million to be used for construction costs and to levy an additional 0.5-mill property tax that would be used for permanent improvement expenses if the new school is built.

A panel of elected officials assembled to examine the possible formation of a joint police district to service the villages of Genoa and Clay Center and Allen and Clay townships is turning its attention to conducting a survey of residents in the four jurisdictions.

Dave Fryman, a member of Genoa Village Council who chairs the Joint Law Enforcement Commission, said a survey will be discussed at the commission’s next meeting Aug. 20 at the Allen Township administration building.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m.

The Ohio Department of Development last October awarded a $42,000 grant to Genoa to fund a feasibility study of forming a joint law enforcement district.

Circuit Rider Management Group, Granville, O., has been retained to conduct the study.

 
Jerusalem Twp. eyes levy for sheriff patrols

Jerusalem Township trustees voted 2-0 to place a levy on the Nov. 3 ballot at a meeting on July 28 to fund sheriff’s patrols, which the township currently receives at no charge from Lucas County.

Trustees have not yet figured out the levy’s millage. They face an Aug. 20 deadline to place the levy on the November ballot.

The levy is in response to a notification by Lucas County commissioners last month that it was going to start charging nine unincorporated areas in the county, including Jerusalem Township, for sheriff’s patrols starting Jan. 1 due to budgetary constraints. That’s when commissioners plan to cut over $5 million from the sheriff’s budget.
