PRESS RELASE - The Tuscarawas County Commissioners are pleased to announce that the State Office of Community Development has awarded Tuscarawas County $500,000.00 for its Project Year Critical Infrastructure Grant application.


In late 2019, the Commissioners authorized the Tuscarawas County Office of Community and Economic Development to apply for federal dollars on behalf of the Twin City Water and Sewer District for the 1st St. Waterline Replacement Project. Tuscarawas County has since been assisting Uhrichsville and Dennison in moving forward with this project.


The Commissioners are pleased to see Tuscarawas County awarded these dollars as they are critical to improving local communities.


“There is no better example of federal tax dollars at work, than these types of projects,” says Commissioner Chris Abbuhl. “These projects are on a local level, and demonstrate a use of federal tax dollars that directly assist people in our communities with quality of life improvements. Receiving these grant funds is just another example of the partnerships involving different individuals and agencies throughout the County that come together to improve the lives of Tuscarawas County residents”


The Tuscarawas County Commissioners meet every Monday at 9 a.m. and Wednesday at 1 p.m. at 125 E. High Ave. New Philadelphia, OH 44663.
