Commissioners Get Update from Chamber and Business Alliance
Written by WKTN Staff on May 8, 2019
The Hardin County Commissioners reviewed a couple of projects in Ada and Kenton with Jacqualine Fitzgerald from the Chamber and Business Alliance.
Fitzgerald noted that the Alliance applied and is being awarded a grant from Mid-Ohio for economic development in the outlying communities.
She also asked the commissioners about reconsidering a Land Bank, which would allow the purchase of a house, tear it down and allow someone to purchase and build new.
Some of the current blight is pulling neighbor taxes down and allowing houses to fall down.
Fitzgerald added that Hardin County is one of the few counties that do not have a Land Bank.
Also at the meeting, Fitzgerald said an interested restaurant owner is looking at Henry’s Restaurant, but she could not release any more information.
