State Rep. Tim Ginter stopped by the October meeting of the Columbiana County Port Authority to present an award for administration of the Drug-Free Workforce Community Initiative. The Initiative was a public-private partnership between the Ohio Dept.
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.
