State Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland) today announced the approval of $713,108 in state funds for Fiscal Year 2018 improvements at Lake Milton State Park. The funds will cover a new gate actuator enclosure at the lake drain structure and gate rehabilitation.


“All parts of the lake deserve as much attention and upkeep as possible in order to ensure that this community gem is preserved for decades to come,” Boccieri said. “I’m glad the state is continuing to provide support to Mahoning Valley’s natural resources.”


The new enclosure is intended to better protect the gate actuators against weather damage and vandalism. The gate rehabilitation portion of the project includes replacing or rehabilitating 11 parts of the gate system and installing three new steel sluice gates.


All work is scheduled for completion by August 1, 2018.

Lawmakers Concerned School Rating Overhaul Leaves Youngstown Schools Behind

 

State Reps. John Boccieri (D-Poland) and Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown) today expressed concern about House Bill (HB) 591, a Republican-led effort to once again overhaul the state’s school report card system. The bill would leave current triggers in place for schools that are under or near academic distress—a move the lawmakers say unfairly targets districts in academic distress like Youngstown, Lorain and at least 22 other districts across the state.
