       Oregon has scheduled improvements for the South Shore Veterans Park area this year and next year after holding several meetings to gauge public input on redeveloping the park.

        The city has received professional engineering analysis, as well as ideas from the public on proposed features of a revised park.

        Ideas offered at previous meetings included a splash pad, gazebos, enhancement of the Haley Boardwalk, development of a natural beach area, facilitating the launch of kayaks or stand-up paddle boards, a fishing pier or short dock, sand volleyball, and relocating Fire Station No.3 from its current location about a mile from the park to the southeast corner of the park.

        Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity on Tuesday teamed up with BP Refinery for a one day cleanup effort in Harbor View.

The cleanup effort started at 3 p.m. and lasted into the evening on June 5.

       About 345 cubic yards of soil were excavated by May 24 from a lagoon at the former Brush Beryllium site near the Village of Luckey and placed in a feed pile until enough soil is available for processing, Arleen Kreusch, an outreach program specialist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, said last week in an update of the project.

        Excavation work is currently focused in the southeast corner of the site along Gilbert Road.

       A second round of seeking contract bids for repaving sections of Ayers and Millbury roads by the Lake Township trustees yielded two bids from contractors

        The bids will be reviewed by Dan McLargin, road supervisor, before a contract is awarded, Mark Hummer, township administrator, said.
