State Rep. Haraz N. Ghanbari (R-Perrysburg) announces that the Ohio State Controlling Board approved measures benefitting Owens State Community College and Bowling Green State University (BGSU) during their meeting Monday.

“These are continued investments for educational facilities here in Wood County,” said Ghanbari. “This investment is a result of legislation I previously advocated for in order to bring this significant funding to Owens State Community College and I look forward to their completed renovations.” 

Today’s measure approved for Owens State Community College includes $341,275 in funding for renovations to College Hall, which was passed in the 133rd General Assembly’s capital budget that Ghanbari voted in favor of that was subsequently signed into law.

Additionally, the Board approved a land-sale of BGSU state-owned property over to the Wood County Educational Services Center. The Center provides enrichment and extended learning activities for elementary children, grades kindergarten through sixth, and the facility provides conference rooms to school districts, county agencies, and is a regional meeting site in Northwest Ohio. The additional land will allow Wood County Educational Services Center to expand its facility and parking lot.

The next Controlling Board meeting is scheduled for Feb. 14.
