Zoellner refuses to budge after 4-1 vote to evict him

The Airport Authority voted to evict Ron Zoellner Aviation Inc. from the premises of the Huron County Airport at a closed session Monday night.

But Ron Zoellner refuses to budge. "It's a business as usual," said Zoellner this morning. "We have a lease that runs until 1994. "Just because the Authority voted for eviction has no bearing that they will get an eviction.

Evicting Zoellner will be a complicated process, said Huron County Prosecutor Richard Hauser.

"It's not just a question of the Sheriff going in there and removing him.

First through Hauser and Norwalk Law Director Ron Freeman, the Authority must prove that Zoellner has broken the lease. And Zoellner and his attorney say they have not.

"It'll probably be in the courts for some time," said Hauser.
