The city of Port Clinton has endured a harsh winter so far and we all look forward to spring. It is time for the city to take steps to insure a sound financial year approaching through our efforts to see that the city moves forward with economic steps; jobs and infrastructure improvements.

As you can see by now, the tourists have left and the city begins to sleep until the spring. Many businesses have a rough time making it through these months.


Construction of new docks on Put-In-Bay frozen in its tracks

A 5.6 million dollar project is underway on Put-In-Bay to replace and renovate 905 ft. of existing docks and construct 590 ft. of new floating docks with 2,246,000 dollars worth of grants from the federal government. The renovation and addition to the docks will give a much needed overhaul for transient boaters that come to Put-In-Bay. In compliance with the grant, installation of new lighting connections as well as electrical, water and fire protection improvement must be done on the existing and proposed docks.

“This federal award, especially combined with the state funds, will provide even greater access to the boating community,” said Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur at the announcement of the grant last April. “Put-in-Bay is truly one of the crown jewels. Its docks are basically the front door to the community and everything it has to offer.”
