Port of Toledo Commissioners apparently got tired of waiting for one of their tenants to pay back rent. The port has decided to sue them. At one point there was talk about laying claim to some of the value of a new yachat that Pacific Expedition Yachts was building in an adjoining building, a craft which they eventually moved outside. Then one day the company hauled the project off to Astoria where they have their own facilities. Port officials said they moved it without paying the back rent. Hence, the lawsuit.
The port is suing for back rent and damage to the building.
On a more positive note, the port has finally moved into their new offices at “Port Station One,” the old Toledo fire station at the top of Business Highway 20. The port bought the old fire hall from the city and has since renovated it and has subleased part of it to a provocative new approach to community-supported arts.
