State Rep. Joe Miller (D-Amherst) today announced $34,000 in Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) grant funding to support marine patrol units for the Lorain Port Authority.
“This assistance is essential to the Lorain Port Authority carrying out their mission of maintaining waterway safety,” said Rep. Miller. “It is heartening to see the state demonstrate their commitment to making sure our community has the tools necessary to keep our lakes safe and open for everyone.”
In addition to patrols, funding will help law enforcement to provide emergency responses and purchase safety equipment.
The release of funding comes from ODNR’s Division of Parks and Watercraft through the Marine Patrol Assistance Grant Program. Lorain Port Authority is one of 23 grant recipients throughout the state.
