SANDUSKY

A police officer left a warning just after 2 p.m. for city manager Matt Kline, city attorney Sue Porter and the owner of one other vehicle parked outside the City Services Center during fired police Chief Kim Nuesse's civil service hearing.

"All three vehicles were given warnings of potential violations," Sandusky police Officer Rob Gardin said. "The spaces are not clearly marked."

Gardin refused to say whether he checked the plates or whether he talked with a supervisor before leaving the handwritten notes under the driver's side wiper blade of each vehicle.

He went inside the building to an inner office prior to leaving the business cards.

"I saw it was handicapped and that's why I didn't park there," said resident Mark Norman, who attended the hearing.

Another resident called police to complain.

At 2:30 p.m. Kline got a phone call, stormed out and moved his truck.

Nuesse was faulted for a parking ticket issued for a city vehicle she was using shortly after she started as chief. The ticket was used as one of the reasons for her termination. Sandusky Municipal Court Judge Erich O'Brien approved voiding that parking ticket.
