Port Clinton City Council’s Finance Committee will hold public hearings on the proposed monthly infrastructure fee to fund the planned Port Clinton Infrastructure Improvement Project. The long overdue plan includes renovations or improvements to the city’s sanitary sewer, storm sewer, waterline and overlying roadways.
The purpose of the hearings is to solicit public comment on the proposed monthly fee, equal to $12.50 each month for a single family household with both water and sewer service. If council passes the ordinance, the proposed monthly fee would begin in January.
The Help 2 Others (H2O) financial assistance program would be made available to senior citizens who meet certain criteria. A copy of the ordinance is available on the city’s website. The third and final reading of the ordnance is on the city council agenda on Tuesday, Dec. 22.
The public hearings are on Monday, Dec. 14 and Thursday, Dec. 17 at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. Residents and Port Clinton water and sewer customers can participate through the Zoom online video conference platform or by telephone.
These committee hearings are in addition to the public comment opportunities available during a City Council meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 22 at 6 p.m. These meetings are also held via Zoom.
People can email comments and questions to the Clerk of Council at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact the clerk by phone at 419-734-5522, Ext. 239, or contact city council members by email or phone.
