HURON - The Bowling Green State University Board of Trustees moved ahead on two renovation projects during their Friday meeting at the Firelands campus.
The board approved spending $1.6 million on architectural and engineering work for the renovation of Moseley Hall, which will be a new home for science, math and technology on campus. The total cost of the renovation is expected to be just over $23 million.
The trustees also approved moving ahead with the renovation of the College of Health and Human Services in the wake of moving campus health services to the Falcon Health Center.
According to the university: "Along with programs in criminal justice, communication sciences and disorders, nursing and gerontology, the building will house the Food and Nutrition Program and will serve as the future home of Forensics and Laboratory Sciences, in conjunction with the construction of the Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Information facility on campus."

Last chance for homeowners to qualify for homestead tax break PDF Print E-mail

County auditors are now accepting applications for enrollment in the Homestead Exemption Program for 2014, and according to Wood County Auditor Michael Sibbersen this may be the last chance for some homeowners to qualify for this property tax break.
"During 2013 Ohio's homestead Exemption was returned to being restricted by income for new filers," Sibbersen said. "However there is a window of opportunity for anyone who was eligible last year to enroll in the program under the old guidelines."
All past recipients will continue to qualify for the Homestead Exemption under the old rules. Current recipients do not need to re-apply, will never be subject to any income test, and will continue to receive the benefits of the program even if they sell their current residence and purchase a new home in the future.  
"The new rules that go into effect this year mean major changes, and how those changes impact eligible homeowners will depend on their status," Sibbersen said. "If you have questions regarding your status or need additional information, we encourage you to contact our office at 419-354-9173."
More than 9,200 homeowners in Wood County were enrolled in the Homestead Exemption Program last year. Those homeowners saw a reduction in their annual real estate taxes by an average of more than $400 by being in the program according to the Auditor's office.
"This is a welcome tax break for eligible senior and disabled homeowners, but provisions in last year's legislation will affect who is eligible to receive these benefits in the future," Sibbersen said.
