Edison Community College to Receive Capital Funding

H.B. 497 allocates nearly $1.3 million for Edison

COLUMBUS—State Representative Richard N. Adams (R-Troy) has announced Ohio House’s passage of House Bill 497, the state’s capital budget bill, which includes $1.29 million in funding for improvement projects at Edison Community College.

The funding will be used for the following projects:

  • $430,000 for roof repair and replacements
  • $252,000 for an electronic lock system
  • $250,000 for HVAC repair and replacements
  • $218,000 for parking lot resurfacing
  • $160,000 for security cameras

“Approving the capital budget bill and allocating state funds enables Edison Community College to make necessary renovations and repairs to its facilities. This project is an outstanding investment for our current and future students along with the communities served by the college. State and local governments have maintained continuous communication and partnership to allow these projects to move forward,” Representative Adams said.

The capital budget focuses on the most pressing needs of state government, schools, and economic development within Ohio’s communities. It is a collaborative process involving state and local leaders, the economic development community, the arts community, and others to provide guidance on local investments, while balancing the state’s need for fiscal restraint and responsibility.

House Bill 497 passed by a vote of 89-2 in the House and now awaits consideration by the Ohio Senate.
