State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) has announced that the State Controlling Board approved the release of $223,083 for the food service floor project at the Richland Correctional Institution in Mansfield.

The existing floor in the facility’s food preparation and cooking area was installed more than 14 years ago and now has pits and holes in some areas. The floor drains no longer operate sufficiently, which causes water drainage to overflow.

According to documents from the Office of Budget and Management, the repair project will replace approximately 4,000 square feet of non-skid flooring and will conduct slope and drain repair as needed.

“It’s essential that we keep up-to-date in maintaining facilities like those at the Richland Correctional Institution so that our state’s prisons can continue to responsibly perform the role that they are intended for,” Rep. Romanchuk said. “The release of this funding is one more example of Ohio living up to its financial commitments and carrying out its obligations.”

The Richland Correctional Institution opened in 1998 and houses approximately 2,522 male inmates.
