At its regular meeting at 4:00 p.m. on June 11, Toledo City Council is expected to vote on Ordinance 145-19 which would modify the franchise agreement between the city and the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority to adopt changes to on-street parking. These include eliminating free metered parking from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and expanding enforcement in the Warehouse District and Uptown neighborhood. Amendments will likely be offered clarifying authority to cite for non-metered violations, and eliminating a proposal for adjusting meter rates according to demand and instead extending enforcement at high-occupancy meters to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The Ohio EPA launched Ohio Material Marketplace (OMM) in April 2017. Through OMM's interactive messaging system, Ohio businesses, not-for-profits and government organizations communicate with other members of the marketplace to advertise and acquire materials that might otherwise be destined for disposal in landfills. Businesses and organizations are encouraged to create a free account, list items that other businesses may be able to re-use, and browse available items that are often at no-cost.
