All members of council were present (Ron Aukerman of Ward 1, Jerry Tarolli of Ward 2, Margaret Phillips of Ward 3, Gabe Below of Ward 4, Nicole DeFreitas council at large, Lisa Sarty council at large, and Mike Snider council at large) except President of Council Linda Hartlaub and Clerk of Council Leigh Sprenger who were out because of illness.

“This is a hot topic for the city of Port Clinton,” said Mayor Leone as the meeting was starting. “Due to input from the community the rendering (of the plan) has changed.”
