The Press encourages responses to articles and opinions. In order to provide for fair comment, The Press will have the following policy covering election letters to the editor:

The last issue for letters regarding the May 6 primary election will be the second issue (April 28) before the election. No letters will be published in the issue immediately prior (May 5) to the election except for letters limited to direct rebuttal of election-related matters appearing in the April 28 paper.

No new political information can be introduced in the issue immediately before the election. This is to prevent inaccuracies without a fair chance for correction.

Letters are limited to ballot issues. The Press does not print letters about candidates’ races.

Letters should be no more than 300 words and include a phone number and address for verification purposes. No anonymous letters will be printed. The deadline is Wednesday, Noon. Send to The Editor, c/o The Press, Box 169, Millbury, OH 43447 or e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Oak Harbor-Landlord blasts village over unpaid utility bill

Landlord Adam Snyder is accustomed to additional costs popping up at his rental properties. It’s to be expected when he owns dozens of units around the Village of Oak Harbor.

What he won’t stomach though is coughing up cash for somebody else’s old utility bill that the village refuses to take off its books.

Snyder recently addressed village council with his concern. His issue: the $469 outstanding utility bill for a three-apartment building at 115 ½ Ottawa St. he bought in a foreclosure deal with a bank.

Mayor Collins says Dashing Pacific presents proposal in 6 weeks, or else

Toledo Mayor Michael Collins said he was told last Thursday that Dashing Pacific Group will present within six weeks an “outline” for the development of the Marina District.

In June 2011, city council voted 12-0 to sell 69 acres of the Marina District property to the Chinese developers for $3.8 million, but the contract stipulates that if there is no vertical development within five years the property reverts back to the city. Dashing Pacific also owns the nearby Docks restaurant complex in International Park.

Collins says he is looking forward to the Chinese company’s plans to develop the site along the Maumee River in East Toledo, but it may be too late. Later that day, he spoke to a room full of guests at a luncheon hosted by the East Toledo Club at the East Toledo Senior Center in Navarre Park, where he quoted the letter he said went back to the Chinese.
