Today I attended the groundbreaking for the Job Ready Site (JRS) in Pataskala. And although it was a rainy, overcast day and very muddy, it was an exciting day for not only Pataskala, but for Licking County as well. This is one of the premier industrial sites in the entire state of Ohio.
Remarks were made by Commissioners Bubb, Feightner and Smith and special guest speakers included Governor Ted Strickland, Congressman Pat Tiberi, Connie Klema who was representing the property owners Mr. & Mrs. Howard Emswiler, Megan Gordon with Ohio Department of Development, Pataskala Mayor Stephen Butcher and Marty Savko, V.P. of Savko & Sons, Inc. who can now begin to construct the project.
Licking County has much to be proud of. Congratulations to all who worked hard to make this project happen.
