 A resolution to begin the process of placing a millage request on the November ballot to fund emergency medical service in Lake Township will be on the agenda of the township trustees’ July 5 meeting, Mark Hummer, township administrator, said last week.

 The township contracts with LifeStar for 24-hour service. The current contract will expire in April 2018.

 Members of the Woodmore school board intend to fill the position of superintendent before the start of the coming school year, Corinna Bench, board president, said last week.

 After a brief executive session, the school board Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution to accept the resignation of Robert Yenrick as superintendent.  He was scheduled to officially assume his duties on July 1.

The Toledo-Lucas County Metroparks’ first park with access to Lake Erie — Howard Farms in Jerusalem Township, is currently under construction.

Metroparks public relations director Scott Carpenter says Howard Farms is starting to look more like a park every day. He adds that it won’t be long and engineers will be allowing Lake Erie water to find its way into the newly constructed canals and waterways at Howard Farms.

Already, a second Metropark with waterfront access is in the planning stages, and like Howard Farms, it is on the east side of the Maumee River. The unnamed Metropark will occupy most of the 127-acre Marina District property — a former industrial site long overdue for development.

The Marina District has a history dating back to 1890, when old sketches show the land wasn’t even there — it was part of the Maumee River. Soon after, it was filled for industrial use, but in 1993, the property saw its’ last usage when a power generating plant closed.
