Washington County to build new business park
(WOUB) - The construction of a Washington County business park will start, hopefully sometime this summer.

The Southeastern Ohio Port Authority will be receiving a total of $500,000 from the state to build the business park on a 27-acre site in Marietta township.

Mike Jacoby, executive director of the Port Authority, says the grant money is very important to getting the site ready for businesses to locate there.

"We will be using the grant funds to extend a sewer line, a water line, an access road, and a storm water pond as well," said Jacoby.

Jacoby says the project is much needed in Washington County because there are few sites available for industrial development.

The Port Authority hopes to attract one or more businesses to the site.
