County objects to BG request that could cripple transportation plan PDF Print E-mail

Wood County Commissioners Thursday morning approved an updated Public-Human Service Transportation plan update, moving a section of the plan that Bowling Green officials do not like to an appendix, rather than removing it completely from the document, as the city requested.
The updated plan, when submitted to the Ohio Department of Transportation, helps human service agencies apply for grants to purchase new or replacement vehicles to transport their clients.
Tuesday morning commissioners heard city officials ask that a section listing a Transportation Development Plan as a goal be removed from the plan. City officials believe the mention of the TDP could threaten money the city receives for its on-demand transit service and in the long-run expose the city to additional costs.
The amended plan indicates the idea of a TDP should be part of annual reviews of the entire document. A TDP would be needed if agencies and political subdivisions wanted to coordinate transportation services across the county. Bowling Green has been represented at the stakeholder meetings, along with agencies and a few other political subdivisions, where the updated plan was developed.

PERRYSBURG - The hide of a rhinoceros, a well-filled purse, and children at the right age.
All three come in handy if you're thinking of a career in Wood County politics. Also, you might want to invest in several pairs of comfortable shoes.
That was the take-home message from an often frank, and engaging, panel discussion titled "Women Engaged in Public Service" held Tuesday night at Way Public Library and hosted by the League of Women Voters of the Perrysburg Area.
Panelists included Doris Herringshaw, the newest Wood County commissioner; Jill Engle, long-time Wood County treasurer; and Sara Weisenburger, who served about six months as a Perrysburg City Council member before being defeated in the November election.
Serving as moderator was Dr. Shannon Orr, a faculty member from Bowling Green State University, who led off with a brief history of women office-holders in Ohio, and then wrapped-up the evening with a few ideas for how to get more women to run for public office.

PERRYSBURG - With decisions on a Costco warehouse looming, supporters were outweighed by the sustained concerns of some residents who don't want the store at the proposed location.
Worries, largely about traffic, surround Costco's desired location at Ohio 25 and Eckel Junction Road, an already busy intersection where some people said road improvements won't be enough to alleviate problems at an already crowded location.
Costco wants to put a 154,000-square-foot store on horse farm property just north of Interstate 475 that is zoned C-4 Highway Commercial.
The city plans to speed up traffic by making $2.2 million in improvements including additional turn lanes, a portion of which will be paid for by Costco. Improvements will still only slightly improve traffic flow, with an anticipated rating of "D" representing the Ohio Department of Transportation's minimum acceptable standard.

School administrators across Wood County will have to decide how to juggle the rest of the school calendar after the Ohio Legislature granted four more calamity days, but with a caveat.
Districts can use the additional four days only after holding school on four other scheduled days off, such as on holidays, during vacations or by using "blizzard bags."
All schools in Wood County have missed at least 11 days, several as many as 17.
The governor is expected to sign the legislation today.
"It's certainly been unprecedented in my 10 years as a superintendent," said Jim Witt of the Lake School District.
The state, before Wednesday, allowed five calamity days.
All county schools were closed Wednesday and again today.
At Northwood, which has missed 15 days, plans are to make up three days with "blizzard bags," make a waiver day set for March 31 a school day, then add two days to the end of the school year.
