Survey underway
Throughout the month of November, the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) is conducting an online survey to identify traffic safety concerns and obtain feedback about interactions with the agency.
The 2020 Public Survey is anonymous and takes approximately five minutes to complete. It is designed to be used as a platform for organizational learning, asking specific questions related to traffic safety issues and previous interactions with OSHP employees. The survey is created in accordance with standards of the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).

Lake students
to perform
Lake High School students will perform, “A Matter of Life and Death” Saturday, Nov. 7 and Sunday, Nov. 8 at 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. both days in the high school’s auditorium.
Lake director Jeffrey Lake wrote the production, which begins with the death of a man, Mr. Botty, who has left his earthly goods to five unwitting strangers. Doo, the deceased’s butler, greets the ragtag group of individuals invited to the reading of Mr. Botty’s will at his mansion on a private island. Mystery starts to unfold as the weekend turns into something none of them planned. Will Mr. Botty’s will still be read?
In accordance with state and local health department orders and district policies, audience members attending live performances will be required to follow safety protocols, including limited seating, wearing a mask at all times, checking temperature before arriving and following social distancing guidelines.
Tickets are $4 for adults and $2 for students ages 18 and under and seniors ages 60 and over.

Water & Sewer
District projects
The Northwestern Water and Sewer District (The District) delivers water and sewer services to more than 20,000 customers in Wood, Henry, Sandusky, and Hancock counties. Although many district projects are performed underground, utility work can impact roads throughout the service area.
In Northwood, through November, motorists can expect lane restrictions and water service interruptions on and near Curtice Road between Lemoyne and Bradner roads, on Chantilly Rue, Bordeaux Rue, Terri Rue and Reva Drive. Residents will be notified of service interruptions.
Lane restrictions are possible in Perrysburg Township north of SR 795, west of 75, and south of the turnpike, for sewer rehabilitation through November. The project is expected to be completed in February 2021.
Through November, lane restrictions are possible on Santus Drive, Valley Drive, and on Glenwood Road in Rossford. The closure of Glenwood between Beech Street and Santus Drive will be announced.
Crews have completed flushing all hydrants throughout The District. Work will resume next spring.
