The City worked hard to get one of the last State allocations of funding from the Clean Ohio fund to clean up the former Ametek manufacturing facility on Lake Street.
Using a $1 million in State grant funds, the City hired a contractor to remove all of the asbestos from the building, break-down the large mechanical equipment, and knock-down the 80 year old building which has outlived its useful life as a manufacturing plant.
The knock-down part of the contract has now begun and we’re anxious to watch the site transform into a development-ready site for the new owner, Smithers-Oasis, to expand their adjacent production, research and warehouse business into the development-ready land.
Clean land, new buildings and more jobs. That’s a great combination.
