        Voters in Lake Township, including the villages of Walbridge and Millbury, will decide a 1-mill, continuing levy on the November ballot that will, if passed, be used to fund 24/7 emergency medical service.

        The millage is projected to generate about $230,204 annually and township officials are stressing that the funding is needed to chart a new course for the service because LifeStar, the current provider, is ending its agreement with the township.

        Voters in the Gibsonburg Exempted Village School District will decide a 1 percent income tax issue on the Nov. 7 ballot.

        Prior to voting, district residents will have three opportunities to discuss the ballot issue with the school board and administration.

        Informational sessions are scheduled for Oct. 10, 17 and 24 at 7 p.m. at the high school to field questions from the public, Tim Murray, district superintendent, said.

        The Genoa school district is looking to increase funding for classroom technology with revenues from a 0.5-mill, 5-year levy on the Nov. 7 ballot.

        ‘Our hope is to beef up our Chromebook use and go one-to-one through the entire district,” said Michael Ferguson, district superintendent. “Right now we’re at two students to one Chromebook in the elementary and middle schools.”

        The Lake Township trustees Tuesday approved a fund transfer to help pay for the purchase of 6.7 acres that will be used to expand the township cemetery.

        The trustees approved an advance from the general fund of $40,000 to the cemetery fund. The advance will be repaid to the general fund in increments of $10,000 over the next four years.

        The second annual Northwood Fall Festival will be held in Central Park near Oram Drive on Saturday October 14.

        It kicks off at 11 a.m. with a parade that starts at Northwood Commons (formerly the Great Eastern Shopping Center) on Woodville Road heading east before turning down Mary Avenue towards Central Park, according to Patrick McGaharan, chairman of the festival.

        Over 50 vendors with food, beverages, and crafts will be on hand, as will as a DJ, exhibitors, a car show, a beekeeper, and a kids’ area.

        Beer and wine will also be available. Identification will be required.
