Zoning issues in Lake and Woodville townships will be the subject this month of hearings.
An application to rezone a 1.23-acre parcel in Lake Township from agricultural to light industrial is on the agenda of the July 2 meeting of the Wood County Planning Commission.
The applicants would like to use the property, located at the southeast corner of Walbridge and E. Broadway, to house storage tanks which will be used in the recycling of biodegradable oils for restaurant use.
Automated photo speed and red light enforcement traffic cameras at two intersections in Northwood have been deactivated.
“I’m convinced that there are still four votes on council against renewing the contract for the traffic cameras. They are not wavering,” City Administrator Bob Anderson said of city council last week.
Since the city’s three year contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., expired on April 23, Anderson said there is no reason for the cameras to continue catching motorists speeding or running red lights. The strobe lights emitted by the cameras, which caused speeding motorists to cringe as they crossed the intersections, are no more.
About 1,400 boaters, including 573 at Meinke Marina and 419 at Anchor Pointe Marina, are again able to navigate Cooley Canal to reach Lake Erie waters, thanks to the completion of a $300,000 dredging project.
That includes hundreds more that annually use Lucas County’s public dock on Cooley Canal, located in Jerusalem Township.
The problem began last summer when boats were getting stuck on sandbars and had to be towed. The reason — lake levels have dropped, says Paul Ashburn, board member and officer for Anchor Pointe.
No results found.
