Columbus – Today, state Senator Vernon Sykes (D-Akron) announced that Summit County is in line to receive over $30 million from the Capital Budget.
“As a legislator, your first priority is to take care of the people in your district,” said Senator Sykes. “This money is going to help the people of Summit County by making improvements to community health centers, expanding shelters for victims of domestic violence and making much needed renovations to our educational facilities.”
Under the current proposal, Summit County will be receiving the fourth largest amount of appropriations behind Ohio’s major population centers in Cuyahoga, Franklin and Hamilton counties.
“I’m proud of the work these groups put in to receive these funds,” said Sykes. “It shows the kind of community we have in Summit County when people invest their time and effort to improve the lives of their neighbors.”
