The water authority talk in the other thread made me wonder if any updates existed for Toledo's blight authority.
- Sep 11, 2014 - Toledo Councilmen release names of 15 people for newly formed Toledo Blight Authority
- Sep 19, 2014 - Collins shows off city cleanup app
The app allows residents to report a range of issues to the city directly from smart phones, tablets, or computers. The cost to Toledo taxpayers was $16,000.
Toledo’s charter requires the mayor to get council approval for any outlay of $10,000 or more. The mayor said the app’s $16,000 cost was divided into three purchase orders, negating the need for council action.
In 2008, when Mayor Collins was a councilman, he criticized Mayor Carty Finkbeiner for spending $100,000 to renovate a section of the Erie Street Market into a concert venue. The renovations at the city-owned market building near downtown was split into more than a dozen contracts, each below the $10,000 council-approval threshold.
