Better Flop…No Bids?…Say it Ain’t So

lipstick on a pig

We are getting indications that there were no bids submitted for the Better Flop project.  We thought we would confirm with this records request.   The Lake County Port Authority, in conjunction with the Mayor of Willowick, and Commissioners Cirino and Young, may have to “sweeten the pot” to get some bidders – perhaps a different shade of lipstick is in order.

Dear Sir or Madam:

Pursuant to the provisions of the Ohio Open Records Law ORC 149.43 B(1), Lobbyists for Citizens requests from the Lake County Ohio Port & Economic Development Authority access to and a copy of the following records within a reasonable timeframe:

  1. Copies of all bids received as an offer to purchase the Better Flip Project home located at 557 E. 305th Street in Willowick, Ohio.

Public record means records kept by any public office, including, but not limited to, state, county, city, village, township, and school district units. ORC 149.43 (A)(1).


If this request is denied you are required to provide a written statement of the grounds for such denial. Such statement shall cite the specific provision of law under which access is denied and shall be furnished to the requester no later than the end of the third business day following the date that the request for the statement is received. ORC 149.43 (B)(3).


Any reasonably segregable portion of a record otherwise exempt from disclosure is required to be made available after deletion of the portions that are exempted by law. ORC 149.43.

If any fee is to be charged for copying the requested records, please notify us in advance if the expected cost is likely to exceed $10.00.

If you do not understand this request or any portion thereof, or if you feel you require clarification, please contact our Records Request Team at or me directly at
