LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township Trustees conditionally approved a liquor permit for the Perrysburg Heights Community Association's redesigned one-day festival slated Aug. 10.
During a department head meeting Wednesday, trustees flirted with the idea of not granting the permit, as no representative of the organization attended the meeting to answer questions. Trustee Bob Mack, however, said he thought the township should continue doing for the festival what it had in the past in approving the permit.
Trustees gave their consent with the stipulation that, as in past years, a law enforcement presence of at least four off-duty officers be coordinated through township authorities and paid for by PCHA.
Township Administrator Walt Celley said a tentative date of Sept. 18 will be reserved for a public meeting with residents and Ohio Department of Natural Resources representatives regarding the township's opposition to a proposed surface mining operation by Wylie and Sons Landscaping.

Deputy Police Chief Mike Gilmore received trustees' permission to seek a grant for power-lift cots for two ambulances. Cost is about $23,000 each, with the grant providing up to $40,000 with a required 25-percent match by the township. Gilmore said the systems would be an effective way to reverse problems caused by loading patients, perhaps the most significant source of injuries to first responders.SClBGilmore reported the department recently received a $2,500 grant from Wal-Mart for fire prevention and a $2,750 grant for training and equipment from the Ohio Department of Public Safety.
Those present Wednesday also discussed a keyless-entry system for township buildings that would allow customized access for each employee and easier replacement and deactivation than lost or unreturned keys. Celley and the trustees agreed to research prices and look into the matter further.
"It's probably the wave of the future," said Mack.
