Trumbull truck wash facility awarded $500,000 loan

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

The Trumbull County Engineer's office received a half million dollar state loan Wednesday to help build a centralized truck and bus wash facility.

The $500,000, 0% interest loan was awarded by the Ohio Development Services Agency's Local Government Innovation Program.  

According to the agency, LGIP loans give financial assistance for projects that create more efficient local services.

The Trumbull County Engineer Randy Smith's plan would create a fully automated wash facility with at least two washing bays.

Smith's office submitted an application last September for the LGIP loan alongside the City of Warren and Howland Township, as well as Howland and Warren City Schools.

Smith says the entire project is expected to cost around $1,270,000.

The wash facility, according to Smith will be an important tool for helping extend the lifespan of government vehicles, such as dump trucks and school buses.

The centralized facility is planned to be built at the Trumbull County Engineer's office in Warren.

Smith says he hopes construction will begin on the project late next year.

Trumbull County's $500,000 loan was one of three loans and twelve grants awarded by the Developmental Services Agency on Wednesday.  The fifteen awards totaled more than $1.6 million.
