The Oregon Republican Club held the first-ever Oregon Municipal Judge Candidate Forum Sept. 7 at the Oregon Municipal Complex. 

Club President Diana Skaff and Vice President Lynn Gibbs were pleased with the turnout, which included community members, current court staff, and family and supporters of each of the candidates.

The club’s goal for the event was to help voters get informed and meet the four candidates for Oregon Municipal Judge ahead of the Nov. 7 election.

        The Lucas County Board of Elections certified two of three candidates seeking reelection to the Oregon school board.

        There were no challengers to the three seats currently held by School Board President Carol Ann Molnar, Michael Csehi, and Heather Miller, all of whom are seeking reelection. The Lucas County Board of Elections certified the petitions of Molnar and Csehi by the August deadline. It did not certify Miller’s because she did not follow the requirements and guidelines regarding the petitions, according to LaVera R. Scott, director of the board of elections.

        A resolution asking the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to cease allowing the application of Class B biosolids on farmland in Lake Township has been approved by the township trustees.

        The trustees Tuesday unanimously approved the resolution, which states the sludge can run off from fields into creeks and rivers that drain into Lake Erie and exacerbate the lake’s algae problem.

        The Lake Township trustees have asked the township solicitor to review how a parcel along Woodville Road is being used by the owner of the Woodville Road Nursery to determine if a conditional use permit is required.

       The Ohio Department of Taxation has approved reappraised Wood County residential property values for 2017, according to Michael Sibbersen, county auditor.

        On average, property values increased by 9.67 percent from the previous reappraisal six years earlier, he said.
