PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) - Restoration work on a century-old wooden lighthouse has stalled amid a disagreement between its owners and a northwest Ohio city along Lake Erie.
The Blade in Toledo reports that the Port Clinton Lighthouse Conservancy and the owner want to put the revamped structure at a park just offshore, but Port Clinton officials want it further from the water.
The conservancy is trying to rally residents to pressure city officials to change their minds after a yearlong stalemate.
Conservancy president Richard Norgard says that putting the preserved lighthouse on the waterfront could attract visitors and help boost the local economy.
The lighthouse was built in 1896 and guided boaters entering the Portage River. It's been located at its owner's marina for more than 60 years.
