John Trendell, of Brown Road, asked Oregon City Council at a recent meeting if there were any plans to repair “one of the worst streets in Oregon.”
“It’s an embarrassment to the city,” Trendall said of Dustin Road.
“I ask that something be done with that, and not just a Band-Aid,” he added, “because that concrete is completely destroyed. It’s something that council should look at.”
He also inquired about installing new sidewalks on Navarre Avenue, which he said are also in bad shape.
“I’m a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at Coy and Navarre. As it is now, there’s a beaten path on our frontage where people have walked. Also motorized wheelchairs end up on Navarre Avenue because there’s no sidewalks to Wal-Mart,” said Trendall. “Wal-Mart is one of our newest businesses in town and I’m sure they would appreciate the fact that they’d have a decent sidewalk for the people to go to their store. We want sidewalks at St. Paul’s Church, and we would like to see some kind of a plan put in place by council and the city to make it so that the Navarre Avenue gateway is truly a pedestrian-friendly area to walk in.”

The Chinese development firm Dashing Pacific completed the purchase of 69 acres of Marina District property on July 1, marking the first major milestone in the development of the East Toledo property.

The $3.8 million purchase agreement includes additional options for Dashing Pacific to purchase and develop more land in the 127-acre Marina District. Dashing Pacific already owns The Docks restaurant complex near International Park.

The village had minor trouble with a bond for a $5.7 million electrical project but the overall health of Genoa finances is good, village officials say.

In 2004, Genoa leaders took out the multi-million dollar improvement bond with the American Municipal Power of Ohio, with a 50-year payback period.

Health department website posts beach advisories
The Ohio Department of Health has announced a new comprehensive beach safety website, giving the public a chance to see if a bacteria advisory or harmful algal bloom advisory has been posted at the 62 monitored Lake Erie beaches or at an inland lake state park beach.

Residents in several area towns are being offered incentives to purchase compact fluorescent lights through a program set up to help consumers save on their electric bills.

Coupons offering discounts on the CFLs are being mailed to residents in the villages of Elmore, Pemberville, Oak Harbor, Genoa, Woodville, Bradner, Haskins, and the City of Bowling Green.
