QUOTABLE Funding process



Published: Sat, February 15, 2003 @ 12:00 a.m.



Youngstown is preparing to take legal action to show that the process used to award state Issue 2 grants and loans in the Mahoning Valley is unfair. Several area officials attended a meeting Wednesday to hear what local projects will receive funding this year. Here's what some of them said about the process and the District 6 Public Works Integrating Committee, which determines what projects should receive funding:

Campbell Mayor Jack Dill said he hasn't complained when he's disagreed with the committee in the past. "Last year I thought that maybe we weren't treated fairly, but we took it. I didn't have the opportunity to revisit it."

Boardman Township Trustee Kathy Miller echoed Hess' comments. "I think they should have reopened everything," she said. Miller also said that Youngstown Mayor George McKelvey raised "some issues that are important" at Wednesday's meeting.

Gary Cook, Canfield Township road supervisor, said he's also had problems with some of the committee's past decisions. "Many years we've been very frustrated, feeling that the board isn't consistent. However, I understand the process is complicated," he said.
