ROSSFORD — Voters returned the president of the Board of Education to office and ensured she and the rest of the  board will continue to discuss the district’s building needs.
A 4.6-mill building bond levy was defeated by 99 votes, far closer than the 2-to-1 trouncing the last building proposal suffered three years ago.
Superintendent Dan Creps, who has just been on the job since April, said the result was a disappointment. Still he saw the dramatic narrowing of the marginof defeat as a positive. The vote turnout, he noted was somewhat lower than was projected.
He said district officials will go back out into the community to gain more insight into the decision.
Still, Creps said, the “plan is a great plan.”

Rossford returns three incumbents to council, nixes pay hikes PDF Print E-mail

ROSSFORD — Three incumbents were returned to City Council, but they won’t be getting a pay hike.
Winning re-election were: Chuck Duricek, 1168 votes, Caroline Eckel, 1067, and Jerry Staczek, 892. Joining them, will be Daniel J. Wagner, 936. Wagner is president of the Toledo Patrolmen’s Union.
Failing in their bids for council were Robert Densic,  872, who ran on a strict small government platform, and former police chief Dennis J. Foy, Sr., 762.
Voters turned down two charter amendments that would have raised the pay of members of council and the mayor. Council pay, which hasn’t changed in 20 years, would have risen to $8,400 annually up from $3,000. The other amendment would have hiked the mayor’s pay to $18,000, up from $7,500.
Mayor Neil MacKinnon supported the raise for council, but not for mayor.
A survey done by council showed that its pay and that of the mayor were with one exception the lowest in the region.
The issue though didn’t seem to impact the council race. Staczek and Duricek spoke against the raises, though they voted to put the charter amendment on the ballot, and Eckel was one of the strongest proponents.
Densic on the other hand spoke against the raises when they were first debated on council and during the campaign.
Michael Scott, who’d served one term on council, had resigned from his seat on Sept. 1 to take a spot on the board of the Northwestern Sewer and Water District.
