NEW LONDON — Council member Bill Curtis announced Firelands Ambulance Service graduated a class of seven emergency medical technicians (EMTs) last week and all of them are women.

New London Village Administrator Shawn Pickworth reported work is continuing on the water treatment plant improvement project. The village will go out for bid on the repairs to the inside of the water tower tank this week.

Spring clean-up continues this week, Pickworth said. Dumpsters will remain at the village garage on West Fir Street until 3 p.m. Friday. Pickworth is still gathering information about asking council to put a street levy on a future ballot.

Both parks are busy and seasonal campers at the New London Reservoir Campground are reminded camping fees were due April 15.

Park supervisor Joe Thomas said because of increasing costs, the entrance fee for Sunday of Labor Day weekend will go from $7 to $10 and from $4 to $5 for seniors. Rates for Saturday and Sunday will remain at $7 and $4. Weekend passes will go from $15 to $20 and for seniors from $10 to $12.

Council adopted the Huron County Hazard Mitigation Plan and initiated a resolution to contract with the county emergency management agency for services.
