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.

 The Woodmore school board will again be looking for a superintendent for the district.

 Jay LeFevre, who was hired in August on an interim basis, has announced he’ll be leaving for personal reasons.

 Is the financial condition of the Woodmore School District stable enough to reinstate some of the positions that were cut two years ago as part of an austerity move to offset a looming deficit?  

The agenda for the school board’s Feb. 21 meeting will include discussion of four positions, including a curriculum/testing director, groundskeeper, tech integration specialist/teacher, and an elementary school teacher.
