Toledo City Council yesterday gave the Finkbeiner
administration four months to develop a business plan for the Erie
Street Market and soon after hand over its operation to the private
Councilman D. Michael Collins offered the amendment cutting it to four months.
"We cannot continue the way we are doing it today," he said. "We have to allow private enterprise to come in."
Mayor Carty Finkbeiner met yesterday with about eight vendors at the
market to thank them and asked them to stay the course. "Lots of
entrepreneurs have contacted us and are interested in putting their
business here," the mayor said. http://toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080116/NEWS16/801160...
