Board members re-appointed

Two members of the Wood County Board of Elections were re-appointed by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted.
Dick Newlove and Matt Reger were assigned to new terms that began Saturday.
State law requires bipartisan representation on each of Ohio's 88 county boards of elections. Each board is made up of two Republican members and two Democratic members, all of whom must be qualified electors in the counties for which they serve. The secretary of state makes appointments to boards of elections based on the recommendations of the executive committees of the respective county political parties.
Terms for boards of elections members are staggered so that half of the board, one member of each party, is up every two years.

PERRYSBURG - Plans for a Costco store will be reviewed this month now that the city has received a final version of the proposal.
The plan, received by the city Friday and released Monday, has no changes from an updated preliminary plan last month and shows a gas line being rerouted from underneath the parking lot.
Negotiations between Costco and Columbia Gas Transmission delayed the project from being considered for an OK from the Planning Commission, as well as a special approval use to be decided by city council, both of which are required before the wholesale store can be built.
Planning Commission voted 5-2 for preliminary approval in November, with conditions for several changes being met since. Costco's signage plan would still need to be approved by the Board of Zoning Appeals.
Future meetings on the project will be: 5:30 p.m. March 20, Planning and Zoning Committee of City Council; 6:30 p.m. March 25, City Council; and 7 p.m. March 27, Planning Commission.

NORTH BALTIMORE - Village council has clarified its stance on utility bill forgiveness relating to frozen water lines.

SYLVANIA - An Ohio State Trooper was taken to an area hospital after a Rossford teen reportedly struck her vehicle in Lucas County on Saturday.
The patrol reports that at 10:57 p.m. Trooper Jacquelyn Layson, 42, of the Toledo Post, was parked southbound on the left berm on Interstate 475 near mile post 11 in Sylvania Township. She was parked in her marked patrol car, with her emergency lights activated, behind a vehicle that had lost control and ended up in the median. Layson was waiting for a wrecker to arrive.
At that time, a vehicle driven by Brittany Kralik, 17, Rossford, was southbound on the roadway and lost control, striking the rear of the patrol car.
Layson was taken to St. Luke's Hospital to be evaluated for minor injuries. She was not wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash, due to being parked on the berm.
Kralik and her two passengers, who were wearing seat belts, were not injured.
Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, and the incident remains under investigation.
