COLUMBUS- Ohio House Speaker Bob Cupp (R-Lima) recently appointed State Rep. Craig S. Riedel (RDefiance) as a member to the Defiance and Paulding Counties Transportation Improvement Districts (TID).
“The Defiance and Paulding TIDs will help streamline transportation projects and promote economic growth throughout our communities,” said Rep. Riedel. “I’m honored that Speaker Cupp appointed me to this position, and I look forward to working with the board members to improve our infrastructure.”
TIDs are a separate political subdivision that promote intergovernmental and public-private cooperation of transportation resources and investments. Districts participate in a cooperative countywide coalition to take advantage of the opportunities and benefits provided only through a TID to plan, construct, and improve highways, roads, bridges, and other transportation projects.
Rep. Riedel is appointed for a two-year term.
