Towns wrangle for block grants PDF Print E-mail

Communities bickered among each other and officials butted heads as the county planning commission weighed where block grant funding should go.
The money for which 13 communities applied could only be awarded to four projects under the Community Development Block Grant program, a system of federal allocations handed down by the state each year, much of which funds infrastructure projects that benefit low- and middle-income people or bring public facilities into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The county's pot from the state was whittled down to $155,660 available this year. That's after 14 percent, or $25,340, the county keeps in administrative fees that mostly go toward the fair housing program, according to Dave Steiner, director of the planning commission.
The competitive grant review Tuesday prompted a few community representatives to downgrade other projects instead of advocating for their own, grasping at whatever might put their application over the top.

Mosquito spraying not in Lake budget PDF Print E-mail

MILLBURY - The mosquitoes, if and when they come this year, will have free reign in Lake Township - at least for this summer.
At Tuesday's meeting, Lake Township Trustee Chairwoman Melanie Bowen said she was asked by a resident to look into spraying area ditches to stop the pesky insects. The farmer, she said, lives in the Pemberville and Bradner roads area and would like the ditches sprayed. Northwood, the farmer said, sprays ditches for mosquitoes.
Bowen said the township does not have the equipment to do the spraying and would have to pay for personnel in the evening to do the work, or contract it out.
Fiscal Officer Vicki Schwamberger said a township employee would also have to be certified.
"You're talking about 36 square miles of property," added Trustee Richard Welling.

Planning commission recommends process to speed up some site approvals PDF Print E-mail

Proposed zoning changes that would significantly speed up the approval process for some properties – including removing City Council from the equation – will be moving on to council for their consideration.

The measure – itself suggested by council – passed Planning Commission Wednesday night by a vote of 6-1, with two abstentions.

“This came from City Council, and I think there’s a reason” they’re suggesting it, said commission member Jeff Betts prior to the vote.

The proposed changes concern three sections of the site plan approval process for S-District, or planned, zoned properties. This included certain residential, commercial, institutional and park properties.

N.B. water and sewer bills spike PDF Print E-mail

NORTH BALTIMORE - Residents again crowded council chambers on Tuesday to protest increases on water and sewer bills.
Most residents, some of whom have voiced concerns at previous council meetings, questioned why their usage has gone up significantly when their habits have stayed largely the same. Others said they have even cut back on shower length, toilet flushes or laundry to try and decrease usage, but are still being overwhelmed by their bill.
"I don't know how much more I can cut down. I don't know what else to do," said one citizen.
They expressed further frustration with what they feel is a lack of action being taken.
"I think what everyone wants is answers. We don't want this dragged out for two or three more months," another citizen said.
