††† Lorain County Wireless Notification System
Lorain County recently implemented a wireless emergency notification system
(WENS), which is sometimes referred to as a reverse 911.† With this, the county, or any political
subdivision (City, Township, etc.) can issue warnings or emergency
information, such as weather alerts, boil alerts, and so forth.† It should prove to be a useful tool that
can disseminate information to a target group very quickly.
The system can contact
you via telephone, cell phone, (Voice or text), or email, whichever you

††††††††††††††† Penfield is part of K.E.Y.
Many of you may have seen the news release about K.E.Y. (Keystone Empowers
You).† The goal of the KEY
Collaborative is to increase access to physical activity and healthy foods
leading to a Keystone School District community where the healthy choice is
the easiest choice for seniors, school-aged children, parents, adults, and
individuals who work for a Keystone community employer.†
While it references the Keystone School District, itís only connection
is that it is using the school district to define the geographical area
that the collaboration entails.
Some of the projects that stem from KEY, that you might notice, will be
healthier choices at the concession stands and improvements to the Penfield
walking trail at the recreation park.

††††††††††††††† Reflective Address Signs
These signs are available to residents at no charge and
make it much easier for emergency personnel to locate your home.† If you would like one, contact any of
your trustees, The South Lorain County Ambulance District, or The
Wellington Fire Department.
Pass this information on to anyone within the township
who needs one of these signs.
†††††††††††††††††††††† Jones Road Bridge
The Jones Road bridge
over the Black River was scheduled to be replaced mid-summer of next
year.† The county engineers did their
annual inspection and found that the bridge had gotten worse than expected,
they therefore closed it until it can be replaced.
It will still not be
replaced until next year, but with some luck, it might be moved up to late
winter or early spring.
