A proposed curfew for minors, which was defeated by Oregon City Council earlier this year, will go before council for reconsideration. If council rejects it again, voters will decide the matter in the November General Election.

“Our charter now requires that it be referred to a committee,” City Administrator Mike Beazley said at a recent council meeting. “At that point, we would have a committee hearing. In terms of a timeline, it would come up at our Committee of the Whole meeting on July18, with the expectation for final action on July 25.”

Before city council voted 5-2 against the curfew on March 21, members of block watch groups had presented reasons why they believed it was needed at two Safety Committee meetings.

Northwood Mayor Ed Schimmel, who was elected mayor last November, is seeking the Republican Party nomination for the Ohio House 3rd District seat.

The seat is being vacated by State Rep. Tim Brown, who accepted a position as executive director with the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG).

Brown is expected to officially step down on July 17 before he starts his new job.

The Woodmore Board of Education is seeking applications for the position of interim superintendent.

Linda Bringman, who’s been superintendent since 2012, announced her retirement last week, effective July 1.

The deadline for candidates to apply is July 15.

Letters of interest, a resume, a copy of a current superintendent’s license, and references should be sent to or to: Woodmore Local School District, 349 Rice Street, Elmore, O., 43416, P.O. Box 701, to the attention of Joe Liszak, Board President.

If the current pace continues, the Lake Township Fire Department will respond to 1,200-1,300 emergency calls in 2016 and surpass last year’s runs by more than 100.

Fire Chief Bruce Moritz said last week he’s begun staffing the departments’ two stations with paid personnel between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to help meet the growing run volume.

“It needs to be filled,” he said Tuesday after the meeting of the township trustees. Two people will be working the shift and rotate every other day between the Walbridge and Millbury stations.

Walbridge Mayor Ed Kolanko plans to present photos and other data he’s compiled on Dry and Cedar creeks to village council’s streets committee later this month as the village addresses flooding problems.

During their June 8 meeting, committee members noted that the creeks haven’t been cleared of debris in decades and a combination of development and restricted flow may result in flooding.

“Storm sewers are only as effective as the creeks into which they flow,” minutes of the committee’s meeting say.
