Mahoning commissioners approve lease to reopen cafeteria at Oakhill

YOUNGSTOWN — Mahoning County commissioners today entered into a five-year lease with Golden String Inc., which hopes to reopen the basement cafeteria at Oakhill Renaissance Place in February, with disabled adult Golden String clients being paid at least the minimum wage to work there.

The former hospital kitchen and cafeteria being leased by Golden String will serve breakfast and lunch to workers and visitors and hopes to deliver food within the Oakhill complex, where more than 500 people are employed in county offices and tenant agencies.

Oakhill is the former Forum Health Southside Medical Center, 345 Oak Hill Ave., which the county bought in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in 2006.

The commissioners also authorized purchase of $1,796 worth of new tires from Flynn’s Safety Tires for a 1987 Chevrolet bucket truck the county engineer’s office bought from the Auglaize County Engineer’s Department for $6,500 to trim high tree branches over county roads.
