Kathy Healy was once told public service is in her blood.
Her former boss may have been on to something when he said that, as the North Baltimore Village Administrator will retire July 11 after more than 25 years of public service.

Bowling Green State University President Mary Ellen Mazey is planning to stay around campus for while.
The university’s Board of Trustees on Thursday gave Mazey a 1-percent pay increase and extended her contract another three years beyond the two years she already has on her existing contract.
She said she’s planning to retire at the end of those five years. “I’m going to 70,” she said.
The 1-percent increase is in line with what staff is receiving, and less than the 4-percent increase included in the contract with the faculty union.
“I feel it’s more than fair,” Mazey said. The pay hike will bring her salary to just shy of $394,000 annually.
The trustees also approved a $274,264,201 educational and general budget for fiscal year 2015, which starts July 1. That’s 2.2 percent less than this year’s budget.

BG cuts zoning process PDF Print E-mail

By a unanimous vote on Monday, Bowling Green City Council approved zoning changes that are expected to shave months off of the approval process for some projects.
"I think that this is a good compromise" between providing speed and a proper review process, said Council President Michael Aspacher.
The proposed changes relate to sections of the site plan approval process for S-District, or planned, zoned properties. Certain residential, commercial, institutional and park properties are included under that category.
The changes include removing a final public hearing before, and a vote by, council, cutting at least three months from what is often a six-month-long approval process. A hearing and vote by the Planning Commission would still be included, and serve as the final step in the process.
"We don't have many S-Districts left," indicated Planning Director Heather Sayler.
The matter was recommended to council earlier this month by the Planning Commission.

PERRYSBURG — Board members set an effective cap of $40 million this morning for a new school and several other projects.
The board passed resolutions at a work session Thursday morning asking the state departments of education and taxation to allow the district to borrow up to that figure as it plans a levy proposal to pay for a new building for grades 5 and 6.
Members also voted unanimously to request the Wood County Auditor’s Office to generate millage figures for both the $40 million ceiling and another figure of just under $39 million. The board has not yet given its final approval to seek a levy in November as it evaluates details of the plan.
