The legislation passed in the Ohio House and Patton noted how this support will positively impact the region. Patton is a cosponsor of the bill.
“I had the opportunity to support continuing capital reappropriations funding millions in project financing within Cuyahoga County and CARES distribution to local governments that will help our county, cities, villages, and townships.”
Additionally, Cuyahoga County is set to be distributed a total of $55.59 million to the counties, municipalities, and townships for COVID-19 related expenses through the CARES Act. Here is a breakdown of some of those allocations:
