Grant $$ Slated For Road Projects

Sen­a­tor Cliff Hite of Find­lay, has announced that the state will invest $150,000 to sup­port indus­trial expan­sion in north­west Ohio. The $150,000 in fund­ing will go to road projects in Hicksville that sup­port the expan­sion of A&P Tool, Inc. The facil­ity, near State Route 49, will add 14,000 square feet of man­u­fac­tur­ing space at their exist­ing site. The expan­sion is expected to cre­ate 25 new full-time jobs in Defi­ance County. Accord­ing to Sen­a­tor Hite, expan­sions such as the one at A&P Tool are behind Defi­ance County hav­ing low­ered its unem­ploy­ment rate from 14.5 per­cent to 5.7 per­cent in just the past five years. Road­work Devel­op­ment Grants are awarded for pub­lic road­work improve­ments that sup­port the expan­sion or attrac­tion of busi­nesses. Eli­gi­ble costs include widen­ing, paving, road con­struc­tion and recon­struc­tion, and right-of-way infra­struc­ture improve­ments such as sewer or util­ity lines.
