Fayette seeks road work funds 04.06.2011

Written by David Green.

Fayette will seek funding through the Ohio Department of Development for help with road improvement near the TRW plant.

Village council members gave authorization Monday night for administrator Amy Metz to seek an $80,000 grant for improvements to W. Industrial Parkway, from Fayette Street west to the edge of the TRW property.

The road will be widened to create more space for truck traffic at the facility.

The village will have 18 months to come up with the remaining funds for the project.

Council heard the first reading of a proposed agreement with TRW that would credit the company with 25 percent of withholding taxes for the 24 new jobs to be created in an expansion project.
