Ohio capital budget to fund area county projects

COLUMBUS — Ohio’s capital budget was signed into law Friday by Gov. John Kasich, and it funds a number of local projects in the region.

Allen County will receive $500,000 of Ohio’s $2.62 billion budget, which includes $200,000 for the demolition of the Allen County Engineer’s Office, $100,000 for the Allen County Justice Center and $200,000 to Cornerstone of Hope through the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.

Putnam County will receive $240,000 from the state’s budget. Auglaize County will receive $600,000, and Van Wert County will receive $610,000.

The state legislature generally approves a capital budget every two years with the goal of funding needed improvements to public services and facilities across the state, including schools, roads and bridges, waterways and parks.
