Commissioners sign agreements for secondary airport access roadway

| July 20, 2016

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Commissioners met Monday, July 18 to discuss and sign two agreements between The Ohio State University and the Coshocton County Commissioners to create a secondary access road to the Coshocton County Airport. One document was an access agreement stating that Ohio State University gave the commissioners permission to use their property to create the secondary access road. The second, a Memorandum of Understanding stated that the Ohio State University will grant roadway easement for the secondary roadway. Plans for this project have been in the works since 2011.

The commissioners also met with Emily Adams from the OSU Extension office regarding an email she had received from the State of Ohio Department of Administrative Services asking for available office space at the Coshocton County OSU Extension Office to house one person from the Ohio Department of Mental Health. They are seeking two offices, one in eastern Ohio and one in western Ohio.

The commissioners were concerned that the staff at OSU would be handling calls for the ODMH. They were also concerned that the ODMH would be expecting free office space.

“I am hesitant to put another department within your department,” said Commissioner Curtis Lee.

The commissioners denied access to the OSU Extension office, but said they will look for other offices in the area that may accommodate them.

“I would be open to finding out more information of what this department is looking for to see if we have more offices in the county to accommodate them,” said Commissioner Dane Shryock. “But we need more information first.”
