PEMBERVILLE — Pemberville Village Council Tuesday night unanimously approved rezoning 19.46 acres on West Front Street (Ohio 105) from agricultural to single-family use.

Developer Tom Oberhouse said after the vote that he expects it will be at least a year or two before any construction begins. "As far as I know Dave Bruning is planning to put beans in the field this year."

During a public hearing before the council meeting several residents shared concerns about the rezoning. Most said they would like to see a development plan before the rezoning. There were concerns about adeqaute entrances and exits to the property, especially on two existing narrow streets.

Village officials said nothing would happen until plans met subidivision regulations and invited residents to attend meetings of the village Planning Commission when the review begins.

MILLBURY – Lake Township Fire Chief Bruce Moritz got his chance Tuesday to respond to criticisms leveled against him.
An anonymous email, reportedly submitted by a group of township firefighters, was read by a township resident at a previous meeting that Moritz did not attend. The email accused Moritz of yelling at, micro-managing and not respecting firefighters.
Moritz said he was simply "very passionate" during an episode in question. "I was getting my point across to my people."
He noted that the episode was meant to stay amongst the firefighters but someone "took it outside the room. And then someone else, and I think it's a very loud minority, seems to like to stir the pot in this community. And they came here to put this department down, and put me down."
"No one came to me to talk about these issues that were given," said Moritz, saying that the letter twisted his words.

The trial of the final suspect in a 2013 kidnapping case in Bowing Green has been pushed back.
Hui Zhang, 23, Toledo, appeared in the courtroom of Judge Robert Pollex on Monday.
Zhang was indicted on one count each of kidnapping and aggravated robbery in connection with the August 2013 incident.
During Monday's court proceeding, a new attorney - Marty McManus - was appointed for Zhang. She was previously represented by Adrian Cimmerman. As a result, the court trial originally scheduled to begin Wednesday was pushed back to allow her counsel to prepare. A new pre-trial hearing date of April 22 at 1 p.m. was set.
Prosecuting attorney Gwen Howe-Gebers indicated in court that a current plea offer would be withdrawn if Zhang did not plead on that date.
Zhang was informed of the court proceedings via a Chinese-language interpreter.
