LAKE TWP.  The Lake Township Board of Trustees approved a request from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) to determine a safe speed limit for Coblentz Avenue during the regular meeting on Nov. 27.

"Currently, the speed limit is 55 mph and it is unrealistic, this request is to determine a speed limit reduction," Board President Galen Stoll said.
