Although the Port Clinton City Council has already motioned once to go forward with negotiations with Washington Properties, the motion was brought to the floor last night once again.
“Late in the summer last year I motioned to go forward with negotiations with Washington Properties and the motion came to a 3 to 3 tie which was broke by President Linda Hartlaub who voted yes to break the tie. In that time period we have new people at the table and we need an idea of how those people sitting here feel.
I move that this Council restate to the Administration our strong desire to move Port Clinton forward and ask that Mayor Leone and his negotiating team give the utmost focus and attention to working with Washington Properties, Inc. to discuss, organize and present a plan of implementation for development of the 14 plus or minus acres of commercially zoned land offered by the City of Port Clinton for said purpose. Additionally, and in accordance with Ohio statute, this plan should be presented to City Council for consideration and further action within the earliest possible timeframe allowed by the parties involved.” Mike Snider
