Progress 2016

Progress on a major upgrade to the water treatment plant, a safety project on Navarre Avenue, and the construction of the Oregon Clean Energy electric generating facility moved forward last year in Oregon and continue this year.Progress2016

Oregon last year approved a $1.4 million contract with ARCADIS U.S., Inc., for engineering services for the Harmful Algae Bloom Infrastructure Improvements project at the water plant. This year, the city approved bids to construct the $16 million project, which includes the addition of ozone treatment that will destroy microcystin – a toxin that was responsible for the three day tap water ban in Toledo in August 2014.

Lake Township
With Family Farm and Home planning to open a store this spring on Woodville Road, the Lake Township trustees are looking to continue expanding the township’s business base.

“We are poised for economic development with some of the best transportation infrastructure in the region,” said Mark Hummer, township administrator. “Where else can one find intermodal, air freight and the country’s best interstate system all coming together in one place?”

He said the township will continue to work with the City of Toledo and Lucas County Port Authority to market and develop the Toledo Executive Airport.

A new pavilion, and preparations for a new metropark are among the highlights in Jerusalem Township.

“This past year, we completed our pavilion,” said Township Trustee Joe Kiss. “It’s been up just a short time now. It’s our first permanent structure at the township’s recreation field behind Jerusalem School off Yondota. It offers several uses, such as parties, sports functions, and shelter from inclement weather. This, along with our three new ball fields, bleachers, and dugouts have given us a great complex to work with. We may even get some bathrooms in there eventually. The facility is getting tons of use, and I’m very proud to see activity there.”



The Ohio legislature has passed a bill that would ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. In practice, that would make abortion illegal after six weeks.
