LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township trustees heard that the state plans to adjust three area railroad crossings.
Passive grade crossings at Schroeder, Bayer and Carter roads, which have yield signs but no gates or lights, will be upgraded to stop signs. The Ohio Department of Transportation will perform the work sometime next year, Township Administrator Walt Celley said at a recent department heads meeting.
The township also has hired Andrew Slife, formerly a part-time worker, as a full-time firefighter. Chief Tom Brice said another firefighter will be promoted to captain at the Dec. 18 meeting.
Trustees also approved a $7,600 contract with Mike's Hauling of Northwood to demolish two nuisance properties at Broad Street and Apex Lane in the Perrysburg Heights neighborhood. The administration was unable to find lower bids after the only other came in at $9,400 from Morlock Asphalt.
Bids were higher than expected, but Celley said there was growing community pressure to correct the problem.

A Perrysburg man was recently sentenced to five years in prison for a 2012 incident in which he reportedly shot a gun into an occupied vehicle.
John Vandersall, 52, was reportedly driving a 1994 Chevrolet truck on Aug. 14, 2012, when he shot into a Jeep which had a female driver and a male passenger. Neither was struck by the bullets.
The incident took place in the 400 block of West South Boundary Street, near Mulberry Street, in Perrysburg.
Vandersall previously pleaded to two counts of felonious assault with a firearm specification, and one count of improperly discharging a firearm.
Each of the felonious assault charges garnered a five-year prison sentence due to the firearm specifications, which Wood County Judge Robert Pollex ordered be served concurrently. For the discharging firearms count, Vandersall is to have five years of community control sanctions following his prison term.

The Better Business Bureau is alerting area businesses to telemarkeers saying they represent a police charity.
Area businesses have reportedly been receiving calls from an organization called "Brothers in Blue" soliciting funds for various reputed causes. Doctors and professional offices seem to be those most often solicited by the callers.
The "Brothers in Blue" callers represent themselves under a number of different names and have provided differing addresses for their physical location. In some cases they indicate they will send a "plainclothes police officer" to the site to pick up the donation check which, they say, is in an effort no to frighten business patrons. A press release from the BBB indicated that checking done on phone numbers and addresses provided by the callers found that they may not be actual police officers, but telemarketers.
