ROSSFORD - The city's finance director Karen Freeman has been given the top award from the state auditor's office for the fourth year in a row.
The presentation of the award of distinction for the city's audit was made at Monday's meeting.
The award is given when an audit has no findings or deficiencies. Only 3 percent of entities audited by the state are honoed.
"You do a fantastic job," Council President Larry Oberdorf  told Freeman .
He said that Freeman and City Administration Ed Ciecka "deserve a great deal of credit for the financial condition we're in."
ODOT salt bid request has no takers PDF Print E-mail

A request from the Ohio Department of Transportation to provide road salt to local communities in need has received no bids from salt companies.
On Feb. 5, ODOT asked salt companies to bid on 10,000 ton increments of salt to be delivered to seven strategic locations during three rounds.
The intent was to receive at least 150,000 tons of road salt that ODOT could provide to local communities where some supplies are depleted.
The agency planned to charge nothing for the road salt and instead was asking communities to return the salt once their supplies were replenished.
The 10-day bid period for salt companies ended on Friday.
ODOT is committed to assisting local communities with temporary salt supplies and is exploring alternative ways to get road salt into Ohio and provide it free of charge. More information should be available soon.
Since the beginning of winter, ODOT has used more than 880,000 tons of salt on Ohio roadways. That amount does not include the salt counties, cities, townships and villages are using to treat roads in local communities.

The annual "Bowling for Kids Sake" fundraiser will be held Feb. 22 at Al-Mar Lanes.
The event raises money for the local office of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Ohio. There are three "waves" of bowlers. Openings still remain at 11 a.m., as well as both  1:30 and 4 p.m.
Wood County Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn will emcee at 11; county prosecutor Paul Dobson, will perform those duties at 2 p.m. The final spot is to be determined.
Local food establishments will be furnishing free food and there will be numerous prizes given to the bowlers.
Each adult bowler is expected to make a minimum donation of $30, while college students and younger bowlers are asked to donate a minimum of $25.
Each wave will feature a 50/50 raffle and as in past years, a raffle for a nice item.
A new "twist" this year is a prize each wave for the best dressed person depicting George Washington's birthday.

Health care help offered
Area residents know they have to sign up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) by March 31. Because the ACA offers a large number of plan options, people trying to navigate through the plans are struggling. Those seeking to enroll by themselves through www.healthcare.gov are finding the process quite confusing.
Neighborhood Health Association (NHA) is providing helpful, trained navigators to make sense of the Affordable Care Act plans and subsidies.
While the guidance is free, an appointment is required. Call (419) 352-8402 ext. 3275 for an appointment at the Wood County Health Department, 1840 E. Gypsy Lane Road, Bowling Green.
