TEMPERANCE - Bedford Township will hold its annual Independence Day Fireworks Extravaganza on June 24 this year.
The township board last night approved an application from the parks and recreation commission to host the display, which will be put together by Colonial Fireworks of Clayton, Mich. The display will be held as usual in the Bedford Community Stadium.
In other action, the board concluded a 2 1/2-year process to bring city water to nine lots along Jackman Road near the state line.
Water service and billing will be provided directly by the city of Toledo, which will extend a line north from a main that now ends near the state line.
Each of the nine lot owners will be assessed $9,200 for the project, which they are allowed to repay over 10 years.
