JERRY CITY - The Elmwood school board has hired an architect to design the new band room.
Garmann/Miller and Associates, of Minster, will provide architect services including design, bidding out the project, hiring a builder and then construction monitoring; plus modifications to the existing band room.
It will be paid 2 percent of construction costs, which have been estimated at $900,000.
The firm also will oversee the exterior lighting replacement project at an estimated cost of $100,000.
The addition, to the north of the existing band room, will be approximately 60 feet by 70 feet, or 4,200 square feet.
The new room is necessary because of the swell in students interested in band, as well as the noise factor.
The new construction will free up current space for storage and choirs, and cancels the noise "bleed" down the hallway.

Perrysburg Twp. rejects rezoning PDF Print E-mail

LIME CITY - About 30 Perrysburg Township residents protested a zoning change Tuesday, with commission members following by unanimously recommending against the request.
Township trustees will make the final decision on whether five parcels totaling about 94 acres in the northern part of the township should be changed from A-1 Agricultural to I-2 Industrial zoning. The request, for property located south of Rossford and east of Interstate 75 near Glenwood and Lime City roads, was made by Brian McMahon of Danberry National Ltd., an agent representing the property owners.
McMahon reiterated thoughts he shared with Wood County Planning Commission, which recommended approval of the change earlier this month, claiming efforts to sell and develop the property have been hindered by not having a proper zoning classification in place. He said companies like FedEx have rejected ideal locations due to improper zoning.
"Even though there were properties that were better located for their intended purposes, those sites were not considered and did not make the short list because the property wasn't zoned," he said.

Rossford to vote on ditching TARTA PDF Print E-mail

ROSSFORD - Barring any intervening legal action, Rossford residents will get a chance to vote in November on whether the city should withdraw from the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority.
The Wood County Prosecutor's Office has ruled that voters should have the chance to decide the issue, and that means, according to Terry Burton, director of the county board of elections, that the ordinance calling for Rossford's withdrawal from the system will be placed on the ballot.
The prosecutor's office gave its opinion on the matter on Feb. 28, but it came to light at Monday's City Council meeting, when members of the Citizens Choice group, which had pushed for the ballot measure, handed out copies of the opinion to city officials during the meeting.
Mayor Neil MacKinnon, who supported staying in TARTA, said he was surprised by it and couldn't say what if any action the city would take.
Burton said the board of elections doesn't make any public announcements when an opinion it solicited is rendered, but does release it when requested.

While crude oil can be considered "black gold," an ongoing research project at Bowling Green State University is seeking to transform liquid manure to brown gold.
The hope is the research could lead to the eventual use of small manure treatment facilities at each large-scale farm for safe processing of animal waste.
The project currently involves extensive lab work treating and drying the manure into an easily handled and more economic form of crop nutrients. The work is under the supervision of Dr. Bob Midden, an associate professor of chemistry, with the assistance of students involved in the research.
Animal waste has been used as a fertilizer on farmland for centuries; however, with the proliferation of increasingly large animal farms, the use of liquid manure, also called slurry, has become a common way of fertilizing a field. But there are a variety of inherent dangers.
