Toledo spends $42,000 to mail notices

The city of Toledo spent about $42,000 on postage for certified letters to satisfy a state law that dates back to the 1960s.

The letters were sent to 8,974 Toledo homeowners to alert them that assessed services, such as snow removal and tree trimming, would exceed $250. Ohio law requires cities to send the notice whenever the cost is more than $250. The city has not sent such letters in recent years.

The postage is paid for out of the assessed fees. Toledo City Council President Paula Hicks-Hudson said the state law should be updated.
