PORT CLINTON

Councilman Jeff Morgan, owner and real estate broker of Morgan Realty Group, said he is being investigated by the commission after he sent a letter to a developer expressing an interest to offer "cooperation of compensation" with the developer's in-house real estate company.

The letter was sent Dec. 1, 2006, more than a month before Port Clinton Council chose Indianapolis-based developer Puller Group to build a lakefront resort in downtown Port Clinton. Construction could begin in early 2008, if a zoning change is approved on the Nov. 6 ballot.
