The county engineer and a developer traded barbs with the latter eventually winning preliminary approval for a subdivision expansion Tuesday.
Engineer Ray Huber made a case for rejecting the third and fifth plats planned in the Riverbend neighborhood based on what he identified as a trend of sloppy work by engineers and developers.
Huber and John Musteric, chief deputy engineer, recommended against giving preliminary approval conditional on fixing a list of errors identified on what was submitted to the Wood County Planning Commission. They eventually came around to accept the conditional measure, but not before making pointed remarks about the plans submitted by George Oravecz for the Middleton Township subdivision off West River Road near Perrysburg.

LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township trustees approved a fact finding report Wednesday that will give police raises equal to those enjoyed by firefighters earlier this year.
The report completed by a third party after township administration and the three police bargaining units failed to reach an agreement earlier this year will result in a three-year contract that mirrors the raises given to firefighters, who also went to fact-finding.
The deal offers 1.5-percent pay increases retroactive to the beginning of the year, with additional increases of 1.5 percent for 2014 and 2 percent for 2016, the final year of the contract. It covers six dispatchers, 20 patrol officers and detectives, and four sergeants.
Trustees acknowledged that neither side thought the agreement was perfect, but that it kept the parties from entering conciliation, after which the compromise generated would be binding for both sides.

WESTON - The manure lagoon located at the former Manders Dairy Farm on Range Line Road is being emptied in preparation for an auction of the property.
The owner of the property, Dairy Acquisitions I, LLC,  has been regularly hauling manure from the lagoon to Napoleon where it is being transferred to a bio-digester.
John Roach, general manager of Roach and Associates, who is overseeing the property for the owners, said they are hauling between 10,000 and 40,000 gallons a day to the digester.
"As of today, we have taken a million gallons out of the lagoon in the past 60 days," Roach said on Wednesday.

The Bowling Green Christian Food Pantry opened for the first time on Wednesday at its new location at 419 Gould St.
The first day at the new location served nine families, including eight children, in two hours. In addition to those families many others stopped by just to see the site with others picking up their "breads and sweets."
While families can only fully shop once every three months, all clients can stop by during open hours and pick up extra loaves of bread and/or a dessert of some kind.
"Everyone seemed really happy with it," said Shirley Woessner, director of the panty.
