At Thursday night's Ontario City Council meeting, a number of citizens used public comment to voice their opinions on area issues. That included a pair of concerned citizens that offered contrasting stances to council members on the state's newly proposed "stand your ground" bill.

Council also had to put a hold on an ordinance to extend a city water line along the public right-of-way of Lexington Springmill Rd to serve Ohio State Mansfield's new student apartment complex.

Mayor Randy Hutchinson also told council about a potential tenant for the city's new industrial parkway that would bring 150 new jobs to the area, as well as others who have contacted the city about the industrial park.
