Candidates for a seat on the Lake Township Board of Trustees and for the fiscal officer’s post say their candidacies offer voters a needed choice and different perspective in the township administrative offices.

Michael Evanoff, Meadowview Lane, Ken Gilsdorf, Oak Court, and Matthew Schober, Luckey Road,
are vying for the trustee seat held by four-term board member, Melanie Bowen, who is not seeking re-election.

Schober, who’s served on the township’s zoning commission, said his decision to run isn’t based on an overriding issue so much as a sense of responsibility to the township.

“I feel it’s my turn to step up and do my part,” he said, adding his presence on the board would bolster representation from the non-incorporated areas of the township.

Come be a part of Open Public Shooting at the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) world-class air gun facilities in Camp Perry, Port Clinton. All ages and genders are welcome and urged to take a shot (or two or three) at the rousing world of air rifle and air pistol marksmanship from our safe and fun indoor ranges.

“Open Public Shooting at the air range is an enjoyable evening for many different groups,” said Lue Sherman, North Competition Center coordinator. “We have a great staff of qualified coaches on hand to make everyone feel comfortable.”

Sherman can often be seen helping range-goers during Open Public nights, along with other qualified CMP staff members from various backgrounds and firearm experience – including World Cup athletes, college athletes, military members and certified coaches through NRA and USA shooting.

Who doesn’t love some time at the spa, especially when dealing with aches and pains or injuries?

David Williams, of Curtice, has designed a spa on wheels designed to provide comforting and therapeutic hot or cold therapy to for horses.

“We can switch from cold temperature of 37 degrees to hot water in a matter of three seconds,” Williams said.

Cold water therapy is designed to address soft tissue inflammations; abscesses might require warm or hot water treatments. Pulled tendons and sprains are always a concern with a competitor. Rotating treatment is also an option; depending upon a regimen suggested by a veterinarian, a horse can be treated with hot water, then go on a treadmill and then finish up a treatment with cold water.

Oregon City Council on Monday will consider amending a sewer agreement with the Northwestern Water and Sewer District (NWSD) for billing and a schedule for the district’s sewer improvements.

Oregon entered into a sewer agreement with the NWSD on April 14, 2014 that required the district to construct a 2 million gallon sanitary sewer overflow storage facility or tank and install new flow meters within 18 months of executing the sewer agreement, which is October 2015, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman.

The tank would hold excess sewage and storm water during heavy rain before it can be released and treated by Oregon’s sanitary sewer treatment plant.

Oregon has an agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency to make improvements to its system. As a result, Oregon will only treat up to 5 million gallons of storm water per day. Excess sewer and storm water overflow ends up untreated and flows into the lake. The NWSD reviewed the flow over 18 months and determined it exceeded 5 million gallons per day 60 times.

Policies used by Allen and Clay townships in Ottawa County may become the template for how Lake Township responds to complaints about nuisance properties.

After reviewing their policies, the police and fire chiefs of Lake Township have advised township trustees they could also utilize them.

Lake Township Police Chief/Administrator Mark Hummer told the trustees Tuesday he will first forward a copy of the policies to the Wood County prosecutor’s office for review.

“It looks like very good work,” he said, calling the policies “a pretty effective way to deal with severely dilapidated properties. We’re not talking about the guy who doesn’t cut his grass.”

Last month, Walbridge Mayor Ed Kolanko sent a letter to the trustees asking them to consider declaring two properties on Drouillard Road as nuisances.
