COLUMBUS – Ohio House Speaker Bob Cupp (R-Lima) recently appointed State Rep. Jennifer Gross (R-West Chester) to serve as a Board of Trustee of the Butler County Transportation Improvement District (TID).
The Butler County TID works across political boundaries, providing a local structure which coordinates federal, state, and local resources in planning, financing, constructing, and operating transportation projects.
The TID partners with the Ohio Department of Transportation, Butler County, and local governments throughout Butler County to complete transportation projects that relieve congestion and foster economic development.
“I’m grateful to be appointed to this position and advocate for Butler County’s infrastructure needs,” said Gross. “Our TID does excellent work investing in our region’s transportation system, and I look forward to working with local officials to make further improvements.”
The TID was established in 1993 by the Butler County Board of County Commissioners. Since then, the TID has worked on sixteen major construction projects, resulting in over $338 million of infrastructure-related improvements.
The Butler County TID board plans to meet in April.
