Wood County Auditor Michael Sibbersen has announced the distribution of the Real Estate, Public Utility tax, and Special Assessments for the first half 2014 settlement.
A total of $92,490,496 was collected and distributed including $2,827,210 for special assessments.  
In addition $9,044,989 is to be reimbursed from the State Income Tax Funds, $5,966,127 in non-business credit, $895,258 in owner occupied credit, and $2,183,604 in homestead exemption monies. These represent tax reductions for qualifying properties.  Since the county wide Human Services levy fund balance was deemed sufficient, the Board of Commissioners requested collection of half the voted millage.  This provided tax relief of $20 annually on a $100,000 home.  
Wood County currently maintains 74,350 individual land parcels of record and distributes the taxes to eighteen school districts, nineteen townships, an twenty-six cities and villages.  Wood County has over 100,000 individual special assessments, which are distributed to regional, county, municipal and township governments.  Examples include ditch construction and maintenance, sewer and water systems, street lighting, street cleaning, and tree maintenance programs.

A Pemberville man pleaded guilty Friday to a charge stemming from a November incident involving a knife in Bowling Green.
Christopher Bell, 26, pleaded to an amended charge of assault, a fourth-degree felony, before Wood County Judge Reeve Kelsey.
Bell had initially been indicted on one count of felonious assault and one count of assault. The felonious assault count is to be dropped at sentencing as part of a plea agreement.
The charge stemmed from a Nov. 13, 2013, incident on North Main Street in which Bell reportedly accosted another man outside of a downtown business and pulled a knife on him. The victim grabbed the knife and was cut on the finger. He refused medical attention.

Suspect in DV turns himself in
A Bowling Green man sought by police in a domestic violence case turned himself in Tuesday night.
Lt. Brad Biller of the Bowling Green Police Division said this morning that Brian Edward Poulin II, 21, was subsequently arrested by Wood County Sheriff's Deputies and taken to jail, where he remained incarcerated this morning. Poulin was to make an initial court appearance this morning.
Online inmate listings indicate he is facing charges of domestic violence and endangering children, as well as additional counts of drug paraphernalia and non-support of dependents. All are misdemeanors.
A warrant was issued for Poulin earlier this week after a Sunday afternoon incident in which he allegedly assaulted a female in the 1000 block of Clough Street. A child was reportedly on the premises at the time.
