On the Record with Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone

As many residents and visitors know, the algal bloom and the water quality issues facing Lake Erie are a hot topic. This month, Mayor Leone wanted to address these issues and let the people of the City know what steps the City is taking to prepare for an emergency and what long term solutions they are looking into for the situation.

“The relationship with the City and County has improved dramatically. It is important that we work together to watch the water quality and go over the protocols of what we need to do. On Tuesday, August 12, Port Clinton Fire and Police, Safety Service Director Colston and other emergency services employees met to create and go over a standard operating procedure for when Port Clinton is faced with an emergency.”
