Port Clinton officials have scheduled a community meeting for Saturday, Jan. 25 to discuss the city’s proposed $20 million Infrastructure plan. The meeting will be held at Port Clinton Middle School, and those planning to attend are requested to RSVP to 419-734-5522 by Thursdayk Jan. 23.
Mayor Mike Snider has reached out to local individuals, clubs, non-profits, and government officials with an invitation to participate in the process, Snider’s hope is to bring together a “collaborative effort to help identity and shape goals for the community as a broader whole.”
Port Clinton’s major infrastructure plan is beginning to approach completion.
“We’re getting, very, very close to the final plan,” said Snider. According to the responses from the questionnaire given to attendees, the public agrees. An overwhelming 78.2 percent stated that the plan was “just right,” with 19.3 percent saying the plan could be even bigger.
Only 8 percent felt the plan was not needed.
The second big question was “do we put this plan on the ballot, or have Port Clinton city officials take action.” Of those polled, 83 percent said “let the council take action.”
Grant funding was another topic that was brought up. Among the grants the city hopes to secure is a program offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
