Trumbull Commissioners to build new home for Veterans Service Commission

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - Trumbull County Commissioners are going above and beyond a request to provide more space for the county's Veterans Service Commission.

The veterans currently have space at Jobs and Family Services.

They were surprised when the commissioners offered to build them a brand new home rather than look for additional space to lease.

The county is proposing a 4,000 square foot building on Market Street in Warren where a building formerly owned by First Place Bank is being demolished.

Veterans like the idea, if it doesn't take years to complete.

"We would like to do that as quickly as we can. So as long as they can meet the needs that we have, as far as the space that's available, and they can do that in a timely fashion then we're excited about it," said Herman Breuer, Veterans Commission Director,

Commissioners say they are prepared to take immediate action on the project and have it completed within a year.

Trumbull County currently has 22,000 veterans and the number is growing.
