Oct. 8—Gallia County is one of 22 Ohio counties being awarded a grant to improve infrastructure.

The grants are intended to fund projects to improve and repair "sidewalks, bridges, water and waste infrastructure and public facilitates," according to a recent press release from the Ohio Department of Development.

"Investments in our communities are a key to ensuring the longevity and functionality of our public facilities," Gov. Mike DeWine stated. "Everyone deserves access to reliable infrastructure where they live and work."

The news release further stated, Gallia County is receiving a Critical Infrastructure grant totaling $500,000 to "replace failing water infrastructure in the village of Spring Valley." The press release additionally reported the funding will also be used for the replacement of "corroded and unsanitary water standpipe." This project will benefit 401 Gallia County residents.

More than 35,000 Ohioans will benefit from the 22 grants. According to the press release a total of $6 million in grants will be awarded to 13 communities through the Community Development Infrastructure program and more than $6 million in grants are being awarded to nine communities through the Neighborhood Revitalization program.

"These projects are crucial to our communities," Lydia Mihalik, director of the Ohio Department of Development, stated. "Improvements to streets and sidewalks boost quality of life for our residents, provide access to our small businesses, and create opportunity for future development."
