City Notes________________________________

Open seat on planning commission, zoning board

Oakwood City Council is requesting applications from citizens interested in being considered to fill a vacant seat on the Oakwood Planning Commission and on the Board of Zoning Appeals.  Citizens interested in being considered for appointment should submit an application form by 5 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 7.  Applications are available at the city building or on the city’s website at  For questions, contact City Manager Norbert Klopsch or Clerk of Council Cathy Blum at 298-0600.

Wright Library seeks new board member

The Board of Trustees of the Wright Memorial Public Library is accepting applications for an open Board position. This appointment will be for a partial term of four years, commencing in 2008.  

Current trustee Steven Byington will be leaving the Library Board when his term on the Oakwood City Council begins in January. The regular term of office is seven years and trustees may serve two terms.  

Applications may be obtained at Wright Library’s Checkout Desk, on the Library’s web site at, or by calling Linda Cosgrove at 294-8572. Individuals who have applied previously are encouraged to reapply. Completed applications are due at the Library by 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, January 9, 2008.

Members of the Board should live in the Oakwood School District. The Board meets on the third Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Library’s meeting room. Each board member is also assigned to at least two committees that meet on an as-needed basis. Library trustees should show a strong interest in the welfare of the Library and its place in the community. They must have the time and energy to devote to the Library. Board members must make a commitment to active participation and consistent attendance. They should be team players. Trustees are chosen to reflect the community.

Some important issues the Wright Memorial Public Library will be facing include the wide variety of new technologies, future funding, strategic planning, and intellectual freedom.  Board responsibilities include approving long-range goals; monitoring short-range goals; approving annual budget and capital expenditures; making final decisions on building, renovation, or expansion; establishing policy and budget for materials; adopting policies on fines and fees; adopting service policies; and evaluating the Director and Fiscal Officer.

For more information on the Wright Memorial Public Library and its Board of Trustees, contact Ann Snively, Library Director, at 294-8572.

Library foundation announces new website

With the new year, Wright Memorial Public Library Foundation announces a new webpage,

Library supporters will find links to the Dayton Foundation where they can make donations either by credit card or through their charitable checking account. Like many local foundations, the Wright Library foundation operates under the umbrella of The Dayton Foundation. The website also provides a donation statement that can be printed and mailed with a check directly to the library foundation.

The Wright Memorial Public Library Foundation was started in 1997, primarily as a way to accept memorial contributions for the library’s benefit. Now the Foundation is working on expanding into active fundraising.

Contributions to the Foundation have supported the summer blanket concert series, other special programs throughout the year, and the services of a strategic planning consultant. Wright Library is funded mostly by tax dollars from the state of Ohio, along with .94 mill local levy. However, tax revenue may not be enough in the future to provide any more than just basic library services. Eventually the Foundation hopes to build an endowment for future needs and renovations.

To find out more about the Foundation, make a gift, or to volunteer for future projects, please go to, contact the Foundation board president, Matt Lindsay, at, or call library director Ann Snively at 294-7171.
