Douglas Woodard Dep Chief  ppThe city of West Carrollton has named Douglas Woodard as the new Police Chief.

Woodard, West Carrollton’s deputy chief since 2005, has served as the interim chief since October 18, 2013, when former Chief Rick Barnhart retired.

Woodard, a resident of the city since 1971, has been a member of the West Carrollton Police Department since 1988. He previously served in the Madison Township Police Department from 1985 to 1988.

The city received assistance from the Ohio Association Chiefs of Police to conduct the search process. "He has definitely earned the job," Townsend said.

Fraser Papers Demolition Under Way PDF E-mail

Several county officials including Treasurer Carolyn Rice and Commissioner Debbie Lieberman joined West Carrollton Mayor Jeff Sanner and other city officials for the start of final demolition on the former Fraser Paper Mill, 51 S. Elm St., on Friday, March 7.

Thanks to a grant from the Montgomery County Land Reutilization Corporation, also known as the Land Bank; the city will remove the final debris from the former paper mill office and factory complex, with the excavation help of Steve Rauch Inc. The mill which closed in 2001, has undergone a lengthy demolition process since the city acquired the property in 2011. The first phases of demolition were completed with the assistance of grant funds from the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs awarded by Montgomery County. Greg Gaines, planning director, said the city aims to make the property a viable area for economic redevelopment.

“This land lies at the heart of the community and represents one of the most visible focal points in the community,” Gaines said. “Thanks to our partners at the county, it will soon be a usable site for redevelopment and economic growth.”

City Agrees to New Contract for Community Cat Care PDF E-mail

The city of West Carrollton has agreed to a new contract with the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center that will allow community cats to be spayed or neutered and returned to the site where they were found.

For the past several years, the city has contracted with the Animal Resource Center to collect stray animals. However, this is the first year for participation in the community cat spay/neuter/release program.

The Animal Resource Center is applying for a grant from PetSmart to offset the additional costs of the spay/neuter program.

West Carrollton residents who use the program and bring in a stray cat to the Animal Resource Center, 6790 Webster St., in Dayton, will be charged $10 per male or $15 per female cat. The city will pay up to $20/25 for each community cat which is collected and processed at the center. However, it will receive a $15 credit for each cat that is adopted or accepted by its owner.

Last year, the city paid $7,200 to the Animal Resource Center for community cat care.
