Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian is in no hurry to appoint a new fire chief, a position that became vacant when former Fire Chief Ed Ellis retired on March 7.

Paul Mullin, assistant chief, is currently taking on the responsibilities of the top post until it is permanently filled, said Seferian.

He and Administrator Mike Beazley are looking at candidates within as well as outside the department. Only two people within the Oregon Fire Department are qualified to become chief: Mullin and Mark Mullins, chief of training and third in charge.

The Village of Oak Harbor is relinquishing its rights to extend sewer lines to a landfill in Erie Township.

The move is being made on behalf of a request from the City of Port Clinton, which is looking to accept waste from the privately-owned Port Clinton Landfill, according to Randy Genzman, Oak Harbor’s interim administrator.

Currently, leachate, the liquid created by decomposing waste at the landfill on N. Camp Road, is hauled away by truck.

The passage of a bill requiring individuals who apply agricultural fertilizer to be certified is drawing praise from environmentalists and farm organizations.

Senate Bill 150 directs the Ohio Department of Agriculture to establish a fertilizer applicator certification program. The bills sponsors, Sen. Cliff Hite and Sen. Bob Peterson, say it is designed to address run-off problems from farm fields into waterways and they cited algae formations in Grand Lake St. Marys and Lake Erie as examples.

Members of the House of Representatives approved the bill Wednesday. It passed in the Senate earlier this year.
