New perch to be donated

Over the weekend the perch from the statue “Dream Big/Catch of the Day”, or otherwise known as Boy with Perch, was stolen. The Port Clinton Police Department put the word out that anyone with any information is to contact the department at 419-734-3121.

With word of the theft, business owners Mike and Lisa Davis of Custom Gates and Coating, located at 420 W. Second Street, have stepped up and are offering to replace the perch as a donation.

“I was approached by Lisa this weekend and then went to Safety and Service Director Tracy Colston this morning (Monday) asking if they could replace the fish,” said Port Clinton Police Chief Rob Hickman. “We both thought it was a great idea. I took some close up photos to Custom Gates and Coating and they are starting on the project today.”
