State Senator Scott Oelslager (R-North Canton) announced today that the Ohio Controlling Board has approved funds to make improvements at the Stark County Community-Based Correctional Facility in Louisville, Ohio.

The Controlling Board is set to appropriate $350,000 in capital funds for facility improvements. The project will involve mending structural damages of an exterior wall, upgrading fire safety and HVAC systems, and replacing outdated boilers.

“I applaud the Controlling Board for their appropriation of funds to the Stark County Community-Based Correctional Facility,” said Oelslager. “The work done at this facility is very important and serves as an alternative to prison incarceration. It's crucial that we make improvements that will benefit the operations and resources provided.”
