        A Navarre-Dustin-Isaac Streets stakeholder’s meeting will be held on June 5 at 9 a.m. in Oregon Council Chambers to discuss projects along Navarre Avenue.

        The focus of the discussion will address the following:

        •Long-term plans for the Core of the Community;

        •Navarre Avenue Safety Grant and possible future applications;

        •Public art in the downtown Oregon areas;

        •Food trucks at the Farmer’s Market.

        Although the meeting is public, City Administrator Mike Beazley said the city wants to get input from stakeholders along Navarre Avenue – those who would be impacted the most by the projects under discussion.

          The Jerusalem Township Fire Department has updated its equipment that will improve access to the new Howard Marsh Metropark, which opened on April 28. .

        “We as a department have taken some preparation for it,” said Fire Chief Tony Parasiliti.

        Among the equipment that was purchased for the department is an Ultimate Terrain Vehicle (UTV), he said.

        The work of a levy committee of volunteers was crucial to the passage last week of an income tax in the Gibsonburg School District, superintendent Tim Murray said Wednesday.

        The school board held a special meeting last week to discuss the district’s financial situation after voters strongly supported a tax issue: 880 for to 516 against, according to unofficial results of the Sandusky County Board of Elections.

        The same tax request was rejected in the November 2017 election: 677 for to 759 against.

       The Benton-Carroll-Salem school board and administration plan to spend time listening to residents in the wake of last week’s election, Guy Parmigian, superintendent, said Thursday.

        Voters rejected a 1 percent earned income tax; 1,603 for to 1,653 against, but approved a 3.89-mill property tax; 1,676 for to 1,591 against, according to unofficial results.

       The Lake Township trustees have scheduled a special meeting for May 14 to discuss a tax incentive enterprise zone agreement for FirstSolar, Inc.

        The meeting will start at 6 p.m. and be held at the Lake Middle School Media Center, 28100 Lemoyne Rd.

        The company last month announced it planned to construct a 1-million-square-foot facility to produce its advanced thin film photovoltaic module. Five hundred jobs are expected to be created.
