        There are four candidates vying for the Oregon Municipal Court judge seat in the November 7 General Election. The candidates will appear at a public forum in the Community Room of the Oregon Municipal Complex, 5330 Seaman Road, on Thursday, Sept. 7 at 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.

        The candidates are Anne M. Brossia, Scott A. Winckowski, Lou Kovacs, and Clint Wassserman.

        One of them will replace Jeffrey B. Keller, the current municipal court judge, who is retiring.

        Oregon City Council last week agreed to make a $70,000 contribution to the Oregon on the Bay Regional Economic Development Foundation.

        The city annually contributes funds to the organization, described as a public-private partnership between the business community and the city. 

        Mayor Mike Seferian said at a council meeting August 28 that the city has made the same contribution to the Foundation for the last five years.

        The city used to match the amount that was raised by the Foundation, which gets its funding mostly from membership dues and fundraising, but now provides a set amount, said Seferian.

         The Northwestern Water and Sewer District will receive a loan from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to replace a water line along Curtice Road in Northwood.

        In addition to replacing aging infrastructure, the project will eliminate a dead end by installing a loop. The line updates will improve water delivery and quality to customers and reduce breaks.

        The City of Oregon is receiving a low interest loan from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to reduce storm water infiltration and inflow (I&I) into the city’s sanitary sewer, eliminating sanitary sewer overflows and improving water quality in Maumee Bay.

        The funds are from the Ohio EPA’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF).

Jodi Gross, a long-time advocate for East Toledo, has been named the new executive director of the East Toledo Family Center.
 
Gross replaces Kim Partin, who now works for ProMedica, according to Dave Yenrick, vice president of the center’s board of trustees.
 
“Kim decided to move in a different direction,” said Yenrick.
