State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) announced on Thursday that the Ohio Department of Natural Resources will award an $18,000 grant to the Portage County Sheriff’s Marine Patrol Unit. The money awarded will be used for law enforcement on waterways throughout the county. 

“I am pleased to see this funding awarded to enhance our Sheriff’s Marine Patrol Unit,” Rep. Clyde said. “As we approach the summer months, our waterways will soon be used for a variety of recreational activities. These state funds will help ensure the safety of those who enjoy the lakes and rivers of Portage County.”

Marine Patrol Grants are awarded annually by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Waterways Safety Fund, comprised of a share of the state motor fuel tax, watercraft registration and titling fees and supplemented by funding from the U.S. Coast Guard. Grants are awarded to local law enforcement agencies to provide emergency response services for boating accidents and routine patrols of waterways. 

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