Reaching an agreement and developing a plan with an electric company to bring a large line to help power a potential end-user in Wapakoneta’s Jobs Ready Sites is critical, several Wapakoneta Area Economic Development Council (WAEDC) board members say.

The bond levy will raise the approximate $6.9 million local share of the $24.4 million total project. The school district has done several presentations to the public during the last several months so voters can make an educated vote during the election.

Issue 2 stirs debate: Opponents, proponents argue their sides on issue

November 2, 2011

Few people will argue Ohio Gov. John Kasich is attempting anything to reduce government spending and balance the state budget, but one piece of legislation in particular is stirring up plenty of attention regarding his methods to reach that goal.
State Issue 2, placed on the ballot as a referendum, would ban public worker strikes and restrict collective bargaining rights for public employees, including teachers, firefighters and police officers.
