Landlords in Oak Harbor tired of paying delinquent utility bills for debtor renters are asking the village to raise its utility deposit fee.

The letter is signed by Ohio senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown and senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin from Michigan as well as those from Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Indiana.
