Oregon City Council at a committee of the whole meeting Monday debated the need for a concession stand and restroom facility to serve the recreation department’s new South Recreation Complex.
On July 2, Northwood City council voted 6-1 against renewing contract negotiations with a company that provides the city’s speed van, a mobile vehicle that issues citations to motorists for speeding.
But at a meeting Aug. 27, Police Chief Tom Cairl made a pitch to continue negotiations with Redflex Safety Solutions, of Arizona, to continue providing a van equipped with a camera that targets Northwood streets with a high incidence of speeding.
The contract on the speed van expires in January.
The city also has stationary speed and red light photo enforcement cameras that have been installed at the intersections of Lemoyne and Woodville roads and Oregon and Wales roads since 2005. The city is also negotiating with Redflex to renew its contract on the stationary cameras.
Elmore Mayor Lowell Krumnow is asking anyone interested in being appointed to the village board of public affairs to contact the village office at 419-862-3362 before Dec 4.
With a little more than one week left before the Oregon mayoral primary on Sept. 15, the battle for votes to get on the November ballot is heating up.
Mayoral candidates Marvin Dabish, Councilman Mike Seferian, and Mayor Marge Brown are complaining that their campaign signs are being targeted by opponents’ supporters and being damaged, destroyed, or simply disappearing.
Dabish, a grocer who is making his first bid for public office, said someone is removing his signs throughout the city.
“I had some signs at the Bay Shore Supper club,” he said last week. “Then one day, I went there and saw all my signs missing, and replaced by Marge Brown signs. The Bay Shore Supper Club said they came in that morning and saw that my signs were missing.”
He isn’t accusing any of his opponents of the dirty deed.
Oregon city council on Monday will consider giving a 2 ½ percent raise to the city’s full-time and part-time non-bargaining employees.
