State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today announced $49,460 in state funding for the Davey Resource Group to assist the Ohio Department of Transportation to study improvements in landscape efficiency.


“I am pleased to see the state has turned to Kent’s own Davey Resource Group to provide outstanding innovations to make our infrastructure maintenance more sustainable and cost-effective,” said Rep. Clyde. “The work at Davey Resource Group makes Ohio better for everyone, including our future generations.”


These funds will allow Davey Resource Group to establish two new test sites to determine if mowing frequency can be reduced by using newer mowing innovations.


In the past, Kent’s Davey Resource Group has researched solutions for the Ohio Department of Transportation’s roadside vegetation management program and provided recommendations on changes in equipment, processes, and practices to increase operation efficiency and effectiveness.


Rep. Clyde represents the 75th Ohio House District, serving Kent, Ravenna, Streetsboro, and central and southern Portage County.
