The Ohio Department of Transportation anticipates completing a speed zone study of the stretch of State Route 51 through Lake Township by Aug. 31.
At a public hearing Wednesday night, Troy Township residents expressed their concerns about Troy Township potentially partnering with the City of Toledo to form a 460-acre JEDD near State Route 420 and U.S. 20.
About 25 Troy Township residents arrived to get answers from township trustees and representatives from the Northwest Water and Sewer District.
Those who were vocal at the hall were mostly concerned about the township sharing income tax and doing business with Toledo to get water to the site.
Gary P. Kowalksi, who said he was a former Perrysburg resident who moved to the township about three years ago, warned that if “we do get water and the City of Toledo is involved, be prepared to pay dearly.”
Northwood City Council voted against renewing contract negotiations with a company that provides the city’s speed van, a mobile vehicle that issues citations to motorists for speeding.
The Downtown Curtice Athletic Club selects a local individual for its annual
For the past six years the 10-year-old club has honored individuals who have recently passed away, according to Tom Wuest, DCAC chairman of the board. This year the DCAC, which has approximately 30 members, is honoring former Curtice resident Andy Burris at its Aug. 22 event.
Burris was an iron worker who was killed April 19, 2007 in a bridge accident while finishing the Veterans Memorial Skyway (I-280). Burris, who was 36, was a member of Local 1138 and the Northwest Carpenter’s Union. He was on a work platform installing forms used to pour the bridge’s concrete bridge railing when the platform collapsed and fell to the ground just south of the westbound Summit Street overpass on the north side of the river.
