        A groundbreaking ceremony for a state-licensed medical marijuana cultivation facility is scheduled for Dec. 16 in the Village of Gibsonburg.

        Standard Wellness Co., LLC, is one of the applicants to be awarded a Level 1 license last month for up to 25,000-square feet of growing space from the Ohio Department of Commerce.

        The company plans to construct a facility on 20 acres at Clearview Industrial Park.

        The Wood County Planning Commission has recommended rezoning half of two parcels along Woodville Road to B-2 general commercial and leave the other half R-2 residential.

        The parcels are being used by Jim Mlynek, owner of Woodville Road Nursery, as a transfer station for piles of leaves to be used for compost.

        The parcels in Lake Township have been the subject of discussion during several recent meetings of the township trustees after residents on Bailey Road raised concerns about odors from the site and drainage problems.

         Oregon City Council on Monday approved a contract with Local 755 and Ohio Council 8 American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (A.F.S.C.M.E.) AFL-CIO.

        The previous collective bargaining agreement between the city and Local 755 and Ohio Council  8 A.F.S.C.M.E. AFL-CIO, expired on June 30.

        The contract, ratified by the union, is effective from July, 2017 to June 30, 2020. It includes a 3 percent increase in the base wages of employees retroactive from July 1, 2017, 2 ¾ percent as of July 1, 2018, and 2 ¾ as of July 1, 2019.

        Oregon City Council on Monday voted 4-3 in favor of a Special Use Permit for property located at 5024 Seaman Road for the purpose of operating a Bed and Breakfast.

        A public hearing was held on Sept. 19 by the Oregon Planning Commission, which voted 5-0 to recommend the Special Use in an R-1 Low Density Residential District for the operation of the Bed and Breakfast. A public hearing was held before council on Oct. 23 and was continued to Nov. 27 for further discussion out of some concern the property was not well maintained.

        Fiber optic internet service could be available to residents and businesses in the Village of Woodville by the end of the year from Amplex Internet. 

        Brian Hintze, director of sales and marketing, said the company has retained Myers Construction to install the system’s main fiber cabling along the north side of Route 20 in the village.
