Veterans Park and Issue 6

I would like to say to Roger Smith, your letter in the Sandusky Register (10-6-14) was the best ever, you told it like it was, and I remember the day very well.

It was early one morning in 1998 when our administration had heavy equipment moved in on the north end of the Veterans Park and with only a few knowing about it began removing the top soil as the first step into making a parking lot for our business people.

Someone at the American Legion called the VFW and after a long hard fight they saved the Veterans Park from being a parking lot.


Open letter to citizens from Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone

As the Mayor of this City I feel excited that we have made great strides to move the City in a forward direction. This would not be possible without the direction of our City Council; yes the Administration plays a very important role in that movement. But ultimately without the approval of Council, the administration cannot accomplish the things that move our City in a forward direction.

In the last 3 years working together with Council we have secured over 4.6 million dollars in grant funding for our City. This equals more than 6 million dollars in progress of our City. These grants are extremely competitive, more so than past years, as more communities, like our own, are applying for these monies to help with similar projects. Gaining the successful edge in such a competitive arena is through planning.
