COLUMBUS—Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) today appointed former State Representative Dave Hall of Millersburg to the Ohio Public Works Commission.

The Public Works Commission provides financing for local public infrastructure improvements through both the State Capital Improvement Program (SCIP) and the Local Transportation Improvement Program (LTIP). SCIP is a grant/loan program for roads, bridges, water supply, wastewater treatment, storm water collection and solid waste disposal. LTIP is a grant program for roads and bridges only.

"Dave brings a deep knowledge of local infrastructure needs to the Public Works Commission," said Obhof. "He will be a strong asset as they work to keep Ohio's roads, bridges and waterways functional and safe."

Hall, a former State Representative from Ohio's 70th House District, has also served as a Holmes County County Commissioner, Park District Director and County Recreation Director and as president of the Ohio Mid-Eastern Governments Association. He is currently a member of the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce and the Ohio Farm Bureau.

"It's my honor to serve on the Ohio Public Works Commission," said Hall. "My knowledge of infrastructure issues and needs will help me serve the people of Ohio."
