Pilkington North America in Rossford will pay a $15,150 civil penalty for violating requirements for a risk management plan at its 140 Dixie Highway facility.
The company has corrected the violations.
State regulations require facilities that have more than a designated quantity of a regulated substance to have a risk-management plan. Federal law also requires users of hazardous chemicals to submit a risk management plan detailing how they will reduce the risk of accidents and promptly respond if an accident occurs.
The Rossford plant manufactures automobile glass. Two storage tanks at the facility each hold 1,500 pounds of titanium tetrachloride. The threshold limit for the chemical is 2,500 pounds.
In November 2007, Ohio EPA audited the facility and found six violations, including failure to develop a risk management plan, failure to submit the plan when required and failure to conduct a hazard review and required training. The company will pay $12,120 to Ohio EPA’s risk-management plan fund. The remaining $3,030 will be paid to Ohio EPA’s Clean Diesel School Bus Program.
A Lake Township man has increased a reward to $3,000 for information to help solve a criminal damage case at his home.
Lee Cutchall was napping the afternoon of July 9 at his home at 25184 Bradner Rd. when he heard a crash in his living room and found a paving brick someone had thrown through the window.

Mr. Cutchall had initially offered $2,000 as a reward.
Motion sensor cameras at his home didn’t detect anyone approaching the house, according to the police report. The house sits about 250 feet from the road and there is a half-acre pond in the front yard.
