LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township trustees Wednesday rejected a company's request for a road study.
The request for a study of possibility of improving and creating a public road within the Ampoint Industrial Park was submitted by Hinkle Manufacturing, located in the Ampoint Industrial Park.
Hinkle, which owns several facilities in Ampoint, requested an engineering study to extend D Street, said Walt Celley, township administrator. Celley said the company offered to share in the cost of the project.
The proposal quickly drew the ire of trustee Gary Britten, who said the township should not fund any portion of the request.
"That isn't up to the government to build that road for them," Britten said. "They need to have testing done, they need to have an engineering study done, and it will need to fit the county standards."
"Perrysburg Township should not pay a nickel for that."
Also Wednesday, trustees approved the retirement and rehire of Kraig Gottfried, the township's maintenance supervisor.
Gottfried will retire effective April 30 and be rehired at the starting pay for a maintenance department employee on May 1.

MILLBURY - To keep on schedule with replacing major fire equipment, a levy will need to be renewed this year, according to the fire chief.
At Tuesday's meeting, Chief Bruce Moritz told the trustees that the five-year, 1-mill levy expires Dec. 31.
"(An) engine needs to be replaced and should be ordered this year," Moritz said. "It's a very important levy.
The chief said he didn't have the details of the levy, such as how much money it generates, but said discussions need to start now so the levy request is ready for the November ballot.
Trustee Richard Welling added that the board has to pass two resolutions before it can go on the ballot.
Township resident Arlyn Brinker wondered if a renewal would be enough and if the trustees should consider a replacement levy.
"Do we know the ramifications of renewal versus replacement?" asked Fiscal Officer Vicki Schwamberger.

NORTH BALTIMORE - Energy regulations stand in the way of inexpensive, reliable electricity in Ohio, several speakers at Hancock-Wood Electric Cooperative's legislative meeting said Wednesday.
The event at the cooperative's headquarters, an annual meeting of its Action Committee for Rural Electrification, featured comments from both sides of the aisle, with U.S. Rep. Bob Latta, R-Bowling Green, and Democratic lieutenant governor candidate Sharen Neuhardt each sharing their thoughts on the energy future of Ohio and the entire United States.
Latta maintained his position that excessive federal regulations stand in the way of less expensive, more diverse and domestically-driven energy.
Neuhardt, the running mate of Ed FitzGerald, Democratic candidate for governor, said rules soon to be handed down by the Environmental Protection Agency should be applied with sensitivity toward Ohio's power plants that rely on coal.
Nearly 70 percent of the state's electricity came from coal, a nonrenewable fossil fuel, in 2013, according to the state utilities commission.

Asian stereotypes battled at BGSU PDF Print E-mail

Christopher Valentino wants to talk about something no one talks about.
People don't talk about it, but they do it - without even realizing it.
"You're driving and someone cuts you off," he said. "You think they're either old - or they're Asian."
The "you" in that scenario is stereotyping, and it's exactly what Valentino wants to address and combat.
Thanks to the program "Asian-American Stereotypes and Reflections," Valentino and Bowling Green State University's Office of Multicultural Affairs got their chance to speak the unspoken.
The program was hosted at BGSU on Tuesday and is part of the university's Inaugural Asian-American Heritage Week.
"This is the first time we've had cohesive events like this," Valentino said. "We really hope to set a good foundation for future events to come."
Valentino, a graduate practicum student in the Office of Multicultural Affairs, began the discussion-based program with his background.
Although he's "no expert," Valentino shared his experiences of being half Italian and half Asian-American.
