WHAT THE PORT AUTHORITY DOES
The Columbiana County Port Authority promotes economic development in Columbiana County and facilitates cargo movement on the Ohio River. It has land available in industrial parks, leases warehouse and manufacturing plants and undertakes public/private project development and finance. It receives no local tax support but rather operates as a quasi-public business enterprise.
