Port Clinton and VFW resolve water billing dispute

The City of Port Clinton and the Homer D. Gardner VFW Post 2480 resolved their differences on Tuesday concerning a water billing dispute. 

Representatives of the City and the VFW met with an Administrative Hearing Officer, and after discussions with the hearing officer, it was agreed that the prior account credit granted to the VFW by the City would continue to be applied against its water account and that the City would issue a refund adjustment to the VFW in the amount of $2,500.00. 

Richard Ellis, Commander of the Homer D. Gardner VFW Post 2480, said, "The VFW appreciates the efforts of the City in resolving the dispute, and the members of the VFW look forward to continuing to work hand-in-hand with the City on community projects and Veteran's celebrations. We believe the resolution of this matter is fair and equitable to both the City and the VFW." 

City Safety Service Director Tracy Colston said, "I appreciate the cooperation of the VFW in resolving this dispute, and the resolution is fair to the VFW and the City."

VFW Post 2480 feeds the hungry

The VFW Post 2480 in Port Clinton couldn’t have wished for a better giving season from the community. Post 2480 held a food scavenger hunt in Port Clinton in November with a great response. After the food scavenger hunt, Bataan School, Port Clinton Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 79, the Ohio National Guard Red Horse Squadron, and VFW members ran food drives to gather items for the needy.

“We had 12 tables full of food,” said Teresia of the VFW Post 2480. “Originally we had 13 families to deliver to, but we had so much food we added 7 more families. We even had more food after adding families so we are donating the left over donations to the local food pantries.”

The food was donated to the families on Fri. Dec. 20 starting at 6 p.m. To contact VFW Post 2480 please call 419-734-9981.
