Gibsonburg OKs $1.3M industrial park contract


GIBSONBURG, Ohio — Village Council on Thursday awarded a roughly $1.3 million contract to improve its industrial park on the village’s east side.

The village in Sandusky County will extend Commerce Drive, off State Rt. 600 into Clearview Industrial Park, and add water and sewer utilities. The council unanimously awarded the contract to Speer Bros. Inc. of Sandusky.

The village is applying for a loan from the Ohio Water Development Authority to cover about half the cost, village fiscal officer Robert Schroeder said.

Work is expected to begin when weather allows and should be done by fall, he said.
