The Lucas County dog warden is hoping a drop in the adoption fee will reduce overcrowding of dogs at the pound.

A dog can be adopted for just $25 this month in a special promotion, “Christmas in July.”

Dog Warden Julie Lyle said the kennels are close to capacity with dogs looking for homes. Several more are coming in every day.

Genoa Village Council has set a 10 percent cap this week on pick-up contributions for the police pension plan.

Monday’s approval of the cap proposal came days before the rate set by the Ohio Police and Fire Pension Fund in Columbus is set to jump to 10.75 percent, Fiscal Officer Chuck Brinkman said. The rate hike is one of three expected over the coming years. The rate increases to 11.5 percent in 2014 and then to 12.25 percent in 2015.

The cap means the village will only put in contributions up to the 10 percent limit. The employee will be responsible for the remainder.
