City Gets Funds

Edgerton will be able to clean up a contaminated brownfield property next year with the help of nearly $5 million dollars in grants through the Ohio Brownfield Remediation Program. Last week, Gov., DeWine announced $88 million for 123 brownfield remediation projects throughout the state. This involved the second and third round of applications for the program. Two grants, one to Edgerton Development Corporation and another to the village of Edgerton, brought in roughly $4.9 million dollars to clean up a property that used to be Edgerton Metals. The site has been used since 1901 for various industrial purposes, including the manufacturing of clothes racks and ironing boards, a milling operation, a canning company and basketmaking. It eventually became Edgerton Metals Products when the Moeller family from Spencerville purchased the property in 1959. Edgerton Metals closed operations in 2000.
