State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) today announced the release of nearly $6.5 million in state funding for improvements at various state parks throughout Ohio, including renovations on 24 cabins at Maumee Bay State Park.
“I am encouraged to see hard-earned tax dollars find their way back to our district here in Northwest Ohio,” said Sheehy. “With these funds, residents of our area won’t have to travel far to enjoy a world-class camping and recreational experience.”
Expenditures will go toward the replacement of exterior doors and window assemblies, repair and replacement of exterior siding, exterior painting, roofing, foundation repairs, replacement and installation of water shut offs at each cabin and other improvements. The enhancements at Maumee Bay represent the largest cabin renovation project in the $6.5 million appropriation.
The funds were approved at Monday’s meeting of the state Controlling Board, a bipartisan panel that oversees state spending.
