 Is it time for a 40-year-old road maintenance agreement between the Village of Walbridge and Lake Township to be amended?  

The issue arose as to whether the township or village is responsible for maintaining the stretch of Drouillard Road south of the village after a motorist recently mentioned to a township trustee that the lane stripes on the road were difficult to see at night during a rain storm.

 A resolution of support for a proposal to develop a series of corridors crossing Ohio as numbered bicycle routes has been approved by the Lake Township trustees.

 The trustees approved the resolution Tuesday after hearing a presentation by Christine Connell, a transportation administration specialist with the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments, who said the proposed Ohio route is part of a national corridor that links Montana to Massachusetts.


Oregon officials are discussing relocating Bay Shore Road as part of the planned improvements to the South Shore Veterans Park.

At the city’s last Recreation and Parks Committee meeting, relocating the road was at the top of the list of improvements to the park area.

“Maybe it’s one of the earliest things we should decide,” said City Administrator Mike Beazley. “Do we relocate the road, or leave the road as it is? The reason that we might relocate the road is that some have said we want to make more of the park to be on the water, and have less of an obstacle between people who use and enjoy the park and getting to the water. So before we look at anything else, should we leave the road alone, or move the road?”

Oregon is applying for Water Pollution Control Loan Funds through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) for its sanitary sewer project.

The funds will be used to construct Phase 4 Part B of the Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation project that will ensure the structural integrity of existing sewers and to remove groundwater infiltration from the sewer collection system.

The project will include the lining of 11,013 feet of sanitary sewer, ranging in size from 8” to 15” along with the lining of sewer laterals and manholes.
