Commissioners not sold on eminent domain plan by airport board

Huron County Commissioner Gary Bauer sounded less than pleased Friday with the recent proceedings involving the airport.
On Thursday, the airport authority board voted to hire an appraiser to obtain a current market price on 2 acres of land owned by the city of Norwalk located at the west end of the airport runway.
Once that priced is determined, the airport board plans to go ahead with the “friendly eminent domain” court process to acquire the 2 acres from the city. The commissioners would have to pay the bill.
