 In the space of a few hours, the Benton-Carroll-Salem school board and administration learned the district’s future tax revenues could be drastically lower from what they’d been in the past.

 In early March, board members, superintendent Guy Parmigian and treasurer Cajon Keeton met with state lawmakers who shared news of Gov. John Kasich’s budget proposal that included a likely loss of about $652,000 in funding for the district.  Just hours later, the school officials learned that FirstEnergy would be submitting a plan to the Ohio Department of Taxation to devalue its electric generation equipment after the company reported a 2016 full-year GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) loss of $6.2 billion.

 The board of trustees of the Allen-Clay Joint Fire District will meet in a special session May 24 at 6 continue the search for a new fire chief.  The former chief, Denny Hartman, has retired to accept a position with the Oregon Fire Department.  The board will meet at the district headquarters, 3155 N. Genoa-Clay Center Rd. The meeting is open to the public but the board may convene into executive session to discuss the hiring process.

After completing his training and receiving the required certification, Leonard will be on duty May 22 in Clay Township where he’ll be on patrol with police chief Terry Mitchell.

 Leonard, a 50-pound pit bull, is the newest addition to the township police department and has been trained for narcotics detection.

 The Lake Township trustees have opted to not allow the cultivation, processing and dispensing of medical marijuana in the township.

 The trustees voted unanimously Tuesday on a resolution to prohibit the practices that are allowed after a new state law went into effect last year with the passage of House Bill 523.

With a proposal by FirstEnergy to devalue property at its nuclear power plants pending before the Ohio Department of Taxation, two Ohio legislators are sponsoring an amendment to the state budget bill to protect school districts against losses of tax revenues.
