LAKEMORE  Lakemore Village Council approved a fuel access agreement with the Springfield Local Schools Board of Education during a virtual meeting Dec. 7.

Village of Lakemore

The school district has constructed and is operating a fuel distribution station at 2660 Kenny Ray Jr. Memorial Pkwy. The village will be able to access the fuel station to refuel village vehicles. The district will invoice the village for its monthly use of fuel. The fuel station will help the village save on its fuel costs.

The fuel station requires access cards to enter the station.

In other actions, council:

• Took a moment to remember those that were lost on Dec. 7, 1941, at Pearl Harbor.

• Held a virtual public hearing prior to the meeting for any discussion on amendments to the vicious animal ordinance. The updated legislation was approved.
