Konop holding meeting on downtown closures

Lucas County Commissioner Ben Konop will hold a
town-hall meeting tonight in the wake of several recent high-profile
business closings in downtown Toledo.

The meeting, aimed primarily at downtown business owners, will be at 7 p.m. at Eddy B's Restaurant, 405 Madison Ave.


County economic development specialists and department administrators will attend the meeting.
"I'm interested to hear from the business owners what local government
can do better to help small businesses succeed downtown," Mr. Konop
"We will also discuss some financing assistance that state and local
government may be able to provide to locally owned businesses."

One of the things I like about young Ben is that he isn't afraid to dance in the fire. Bring the business folks of downtown to pick brain is a great idea. Others in power could take a lesson.
