Oak Harbor - Problems develop as village drills electric line in river bed

Oak Harbor’s quest for a reliable source of electric power to the south side of the Portage River has run into problems.

Village council has grudgingly approved an $115,000 change order requested by general contractor U.S. Utility of Perrysburg for the drilling of an 18-inch electrical service line beneath the Portage River Bridge at the village’s southern limits.

Council originally approved about $135,000 for the boring of the line that’ll house two electrical conduits 14 feet beneath the river’s bed. The project is necessary because the electrical line installed in the body of the bridge in the early 1990s is having connection problems, Mayor Bill Eberle said.

Oregon City Council may look into limiting car storage lots, particularly along Woodville Road, because of complaints that they are unsightly.

Councilman Joshua Hughes said at a meeting on Monday that the storage lots are “inundating our community.”

Councilman Terry Reeves said there are concerns about a storage lot at the former adult bookstore on Woodville Road, where a privacy fence has been installed around the perimeter. Some residents have complained that the fence itself is unattractive. The planning commission, and city council, approved a Special Use Permit so the owner could store vehicles at the lot.

A 70-old clay sewer line is crumbling near the American Legion building, W. Park Street, in the Village of Oak Harbor, causing more headaches for the utility department and residents.

Village work crews discovered the shattered line as they attempted to clear a blockage near the Park Street and Oak Street intersection last week. The problem directly affects seven users, including the American Legion, interim village administrator Randy Genzman said.
