Perrysburg Twp. mulls economic development PDF Print E-mail

LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township trustees invoked an open meeting exemption Friday that allows boards to discuss economic development in closed session.
Ohio law now allows townships, cities and counties to negotiate tax incentives and discuss economic development projects privately. The clause was included in the state budget bill last summer.
This was the second time trustees used the economic development exemption, the first coming Jan. 8. Also on Friday the group discussed personnel wages in executive session, with no action following.
Township Administrator Walt Celley said the law could be used by governmental bodies negotiating a joint economic development district, or to keep information confidential at a developer's request - whenever publicity could "adversely affect development."
Celley said he was unable to recall a time when a township project fell through because it was discussed in a public meeting.

Work on a long-planned upgrade to the Haskins Road (Ohio 64) and West Poe Road intersection in Bowling Green will begin April 7, weather permitting.
Although Poe Road will remain open to traffic, there will be no access to Haskins Road, either north or south, from the intersection for 30 days.
"Access to properties and businesses will be maintained throughout construction, although facilities with multiple driveways may be limited to a single driveway," City Engineer Troy Sonner said Friday during an open house about the project.
Toward the end of the project when pavement on Poe Road is milled and replaced, traffic will be limited to one lane, with flaggers controlling traffic.
The $850,000 project will add left turn lanes on Haskins Road, resurface the intersection, replace the traffic signal system, replace curb ramps, sidewalks and curbs at the intersection and a add new sidewalk on the west side of Haskins from Poe Road.

A love of cats and a decided talent with a paintbrush as well as a computer have yielded recognition from an unexpected quarter for Bowling Green's Adrianne Lee.
She was recently notified that she is one of the top five winners of a national product design competition, for which she has been awarded a $5,000 small business grant.
Lee won the contest by designing an iPhone cover that features her original painting of a whimsical long-necked cat.
Call the creation "Kitty Blue."
The competition, sponsored by the Fresh Step Cat Litter Company through its Feline Art Grant program, called for entrepreneur-artists nationwide to submit cat-theme inspired product designs. The five winners were asked to use their $5,000 to produce, package and ship their winning product to the company for distribution.

PERRYSBURG - Penta Career Center's board has accepted the resignation of a marketing education instructor accused of inappropriate conduct.
Lisa Bell has taught at Penta for 10 1/2 years, and has worked with the DECA program. Her resignation was effective Feb. 12, the same day she met with the board for 1 1/2 hours in executive session.
The recommendation to accept the resignation was approved at Thursday's board meeting.
The list of offenses Bell is accused of include inappropriate and profane language and inappropriate comments to a student or students in her classroom and during DECA leadership conference field trips.
She also apparently shared confidential information about students with a field trip chaperone, and has shared student test scores with other students in violation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records, among other accusations.
Also at the meeting, the board heard presentations from Nicole Lambert, of Bowling Green, on her experiences at the ProStart Culinary Competition and her team's management entry.
