A former Perrysburg man pleaded last week to charges that he voted illegally in the 2012 election.
William Chenevert, 61, with a current listed address in Tucson, Arizona, pleaded guilty to two counts of illegal voting, a fourth-degree felony, Friday in the courtroom of Judge Alan Mayberry.
Chenevert had been indicted on the illegal voting charges as well as two counts of tampering with records, a third-degree felony. The tampering charges will be dismissed at sentencing as part of a plea agreement.

Perrysburg mulls levy millage PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG - Details are close to being finalized for a levy being sought to construct a new school and address several existing buildings.
During a work session Monday morning, board members appeared to settle on a 2.94-mill levy needed to generate $38.9 million to build a new fifth-and-sixth-grade school. Also considered was a $40 million levy clocked at 3.02 mills, which started out at a higher dollar figure, but may go lower as architects believe the project can be completed the right way for the lesser price tag.
Administrators think the request to voters will be softened by the retiring of an existing 1.85-mill levy used to build Fort Meigs Elementary in 1990. If passed, the levy would effectively create new millage of 1.09, increasing property taxes by about $7 per month for the owner of a $200,000 home.

ROSSFORD - City Council paved the way to complete a storm water and road rebuild project on Hillside Drive.
The project comes on the heels of a Northwest Water and Sewer District project that didn't go over well with some residents. Members of council heard about the inconvenience and poor quality of work.
The city's project will now install a new storm water system, widen the road to 25 feet from 18 feet and add sidewalks to the street, which has 26 residences.
Some residents object to the road improvements, and two have appealed the assessments they will pay for the road work. The city will foot the bill for the storm water work.

PERRYSBURG — School board members voted to fire the district employee charged with two felony counts of theft.
Eric Whitson, who worked in the district treasurer’s office since 2004, had been suspended and did not appear at a disciplinary hearing Thursday, said Superintendent Tom Hosler. Whitson had union representation present who did not immediately express an intent to appeal, he added.
Without offering specifics, Hosler said an internal investigation led through due process to fire Whitson, who faces up to three years in prison if convicted of both charges.
“Based on the information that we are able to gather from the prosecutor’s office, we have found that there are examples of things that he had done, regardless of the outcome of his court case, that give us just cause to terminate,” Hosler said.
