Communities hope to share $800,000 bus and truck wash in Trumbull County

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

Some local governments in Trumbull County are combining efforts to build an $800,000 centralized facility to wash trucks and buses.

Trumbull County Engineer Randy Smith announced on Thursday that his office, along with the City of Warren, Howland Township, as well as Howland and Warren City Schools will seek a $500,000 zero percent interest loan from Ohio’s Local Government Innovation Fund program.

According to Smith, the fully automated wash facility will be constructed with a minimum of two wash bays and will be designed with the opportunity to add additional bays as may become necessary.

Smith says the facility is an important tool for extending the life of government vehicles.

"As we continue to look towards innovations with the natural gas and so forth that extends the life of the drive train. It makes the importance of the life of the body that much more important," said Smith.

The facility will be equipped with technology to monitor use.

The facility would be located at the Trumbull County Engineer's office.
