Toledo mayor-elect D. Michael Collins is near the end of assembling his staff as he prepares to take office.
"We're doing our final stages and I believe we have assembled a strong team," Mr. Collins said.
Collins will be sworn in on Thursday, January 2. He will attend his first city council meeting as mayor late in the afternoon.
Collins says he will fulfill a campaign promise concerning the Northwest District police station starting on Friday.
"Northwest District station, we will be taking a look at that on Friday and we will get a professional assessment of what is needed to take place to get it back in operation," Mr. Collins said.
