Youngstown health board seeks move from Oakhill Renaissance Place

YOUNGSTOWN — The Youngstown Board of Health may move to a city-owned facility in the future to save rent being paid for its space at a Mahoning County-owned building.

The 2013 rent for space at Oakhill Renaissance Place, 345 Oak Hill Ave., is $50,000.

At today’s board meeting, Mayor Charles P. Sammarone, who is also health board president, said the rent contract at Oakhill expires in 2015, and the cost could “jump up even more.”

The city health department houses its offices and records department and the Youngstown Office on Minority Health at Oakhill.

Sammarone suggested the board look into the feasibility of moving into a city-owned building, such as the Youngstown City Hall Annex, located at 9 W. Front St., in downtown Youngstown.
