Kasich signs bill that spares island mayor's courts

Gov. John Kasich has signed a bill that gets rid of mayor's courts in several Ohio small towns, including a much-loathed speed trap in the Cleveland area, but spares courts at Put-in-Bay and Kelleys Island.

State Rep. Dennis Murray, D-Sandusky, said Thursday that he worked with state Sen. Mark Wagoner, R-Toledo, to make sure that courts on the two islands would be excluded from any final bill. Murray said he generally dislikes mayor's courts but sees a reason to have part-time courts on the islands, sparing the residents from having to travel to the mainland for minor matters.
