State Senator Larry Obhof (R - Montville Township) announced that the Ohio Senate has adopted a Resolution honoring Wayne County on its bicentennial. Wayne County was officially organized through an act of the Ohio Legislature in January of 1812. The act went into effect on March 1 of that same year. Senate Resolution 183, which was sponsored by Obhof and State Senator Frank LaRose (R - Copley), states that for two centuries, "Wayne County has enjoyed the benefits of a generous and civic-minded population." As the Resolution also notes, "the county has become known for its residents' cooperation, integrity, and willingness to work hard." "Throughout 2012, Wayne County residents will have the opportunity to share in a unique celebration of the past," said Obhof. "As this community reflects on the past two centuries, Senator LaRose and I would like to be among the first to wish the County continued growth and success in the years to come."
