TONTOGANY - Otsego Local Schools are distributing surveys throughout the community to gather input as they prepare for strategic planning.
"We want to involve them in then district and clearly talk about our vision and mission and really invite everyone to participate" about what is working and not working, said Superintendent Adam Koch in a recent interview.
The surveys are being distributed through a variety of means - via Koch's weekly email updates, through the Otsego Knights website and in hard-copy form at each of the district's village halls, as well as local churches, libraries, school offices and post offices.
The surveys come in two types: a parent survey, which consists of more than 50 questions, and a community survey, with more than 20 questions.
"And from the survey data, we're going to then put together a strategic plan and to involve all stakeholders."

Henry Filters, a long-time name in Bowling Green manufacturing, is ready to hang its name again at 555 Van Camp Road.
The firm, which manufactures custom engineered filtration products, was purchased Thursday from Durr AG, Stutgart, Germany, by Barnes International of Rockford, Ill. Durr had owned Henry since 1999.
“The ink is still drying,” Roy Martinez, vice president of operations, said Monday afternoon.
“We had an all-plant meeting Friday morning. The employees are looking for change and are optimistic for the future,” Martinez said. “Even though they (Barnes) are a competitor, there are a lot of synergies, a lot of potential,” he said.
“A lot of the community will recognize the Henry Filters name,” said Martinez, who started with the firm as a welder in 1972. Henry’s products are used in the industrial metal working industry.
“We are very excited for the sale and look forward to Henry Filters returning as a strong vital member of the industrial community that it once was,” said Sue Clark, director of the Bowling Green Economic Development Foundation.
“It is a great move and looks like two companies with a lot of similar systems, each with different customers,” Clark added.

Rossford moves to ban clothes donation bins PDF Print E-mail

ROSSFORD - City Council Monday was in a mood to clean up.
The council considered to resolutions to ban clothing collection boxes from the city and to make sure that after snow storms sidewalks are cleared.
Councilman Jerry Staczek has been pushing for months to have the city act against the collection boxes that dot the city. He has complained that the boxes aren't emptied and the clothing spills out. Also, people put other items not intended.
While the boxes owned by Planet Aid seem to be a good-will effort to help people, they are actually scams, Staczek said. Last month he distributed a packet of material based on his own internet research, that documented national problems with the Denmark-based company Tvind.
The clothing collected, he said Monday, is bailed and shipped overseas where it is shredded and used for insulation.
He said there are at least seven boxes located through the city.

A former Wood County Sheriff’s Deputy indicted for the sexual assault of an inmate has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Dusty G. Garwood, 50, Bradner, is charged with two counts of gross sexual imposition and one count of sexual battery. His arraignment took place before Judge Robert C. Pollex Monday. The matter had initially been scheduled for this morning.
Garwood was given an own recognizance bond. As a condition of the bond, he is not to have contact with the alleged victim or her family.
Garwood is accused of sexual contact, including intercourse, with a female inmate who was on electronic home monitoring because her criminal case was ongoing.
On the sexual battery count, the indictment indicates Garwood “had supervisory or disciplinary authority over the victim who was in the custody of law.”
