(Toledo News Now) -
officials in neighboring communities say they would have liked more direct notification
of the water crisis last weekend, rather than learning about it on the news.
press conference Tuesday, Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins was asked why he didn't
notify officials of the suburban cities that get their water supply from Toledo

officials are saying they would have liked to receive that call.

in the morning than to wake up and find out on the news and not have an answer

like more notification if this happens again.
the surrounding elected officials should have been notified as soon as they
realized there was a potential problem, at five o'clock on Friday when they
realized they were going to have to be doing more tests and there was a
potential to have to shut the system down," Glenn said. "Those phone calls to
elected officials should have started then, and we could make plans to get our
residents notified if it happened."
Collins says this has been a learning experience.
