Court receives grant money for projects

| June 2, 2016

COSHOCTON – Coshocton County Probate & Juvenile Court was one of 69 courts that were awarded grants from the Ohio Supreme Court for court technology projects.

“We received an overwhelming response to this program with nearly 570 proposals submitted. The projects selected will enable local courts to administer justice fairly and securely, and to improve access to justice for more Ohioans,” said Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor.

Nearly $2.5 million in funding will be distributed to the 69 courts for 110 projects.

Coshocton had three projects selected and will receive $57,193 in funding.

Servers, backup systems, and case management improvements will be made to the court, and one application is a joint venture between the Probate & Juvenile Court and Coshocton Municipal Court,” said Doug Schonauer, court administrator, certified court executive, Coshocton County Probate & Juvenile Court.

Projects must be finished by Sept. 1.

Funding comes from the Ohio Courts Technology Initiative, established to facilitate the exchange of information and warehousing of data by and between Ohio courts and other justice system partners through the creation of the Ohio Courts Network, to deliver technology goods and services to courts, to operate the Commission on Technology and the Courts, and to aid in the orderly adoption and comprehensive use of technology in Ohio courts.
