Oregon City Council on Monday will consider applying for Water Pollution Control Loan Funds from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency for the construction of a building that will dewater sludge at the wastewater treatment plant.
The goal is to dewater and landfill sludge, which is considered more cost-efficient than applying liquid sludge to land.

The FBI, the DEA, and the State of Ohio Medical Board executed a federal search warrant at a Northwood doctor’s office last Wednesday morning.

The medical board had received complaints about Dr. Haridas Dasani, whose office is located at 500 Commerce Park Blvd., where the raid took place.

Northwood police were asked by the FBI to assist in the raid, according to Police Chief Tom Cairl.

Oregon City Council on Monday approved a $71,954 contract with Poggemeyer Design Group, Inc., of Bowling Green, to design a multi-use bike path between Seaman and Brown roads.

The proposed 10’ wide path would have a north-south alignment adjacent to the trunk waterline within Toledo Edison tower easements, located mid-way between Coy and Lallendorf roads.

Funding for the design was included in the 2016 budget.

Oregon plans to install a four-way stop at the intersection of Starr Avenue and Lallendorf Road in an effort to reduce severe traffic accidents.

Currently, the intersection has a two-way stop on Lallendorf Road.

“We’re very conscious of that intersection by Pearson Park,” Mayor Mike Seferian said at a council meeting on Monday. “People tend to stop when they don’t have stop signs, and stop when they do have stop signs. It’s been an issue for a number of years.”

 State Sen. Edna Brown, D-Toledo, provided sponsor testimony last week on a bill that modifies the state law covering farm management plans.

 Noting the 2014 water crisis in Toledo from toxic algal blooms in Lake Erie, Sen. Brown told the Senate Agriculture Committee excessive run-off from farmland is a state-wide problem.
