Lake County Wins With State Capital Bill

Several Lake County communities and organizations are slated to receive over $3,500,000 from the recently passed State Capital Bill.  With significant support from the Board of County Commissioners, community leaders began identifying local project priorities at the end of 2019 that will support and enhance recreational, social and economic development opportunities throughout Lake County. 

“Lake County has demonstrated time and time again that a team first approach will yield positive opportunities for our residents, businesses, and social service communities.   We are fortunate to have dedicated leadership at all levels of government.  We are recognized throughout Ohio as a well-organized community and this is further evidence that, in Lake County, planning, communication and cooperation is the recipe for successful projects,” said Commissioner John R. Hamercheck.
