LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township trustees heard Wednesday 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 the afternoon department heads meeting.
Also Wednesday, the township 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.
