Ohio Chamber 1 22OHIO COUNTY, Ky. (1/22/20) — Ohio County Judge-Executive David Johnston delivered the State of the County Address during the Ohio County Chamber of Commerce monthly meeting held Tuesday at the Senior Center.

Johnston told the business community the state of the county is "good."

“Roads are still the big issue,” the judge said. “We spent $1.74 million on pavement in 2019, and our goal is to pave every road that has people living there. And, OCETA is constantly looking for new businesses to come into the county.”

He encouraged everyone to call their legislators and request more funding for County Road Aid. Johnston also mentioned an ordinance has been passed to help curb littering. 

The delicious lunch of beans, cornbread and peach cobbler was provided by the Senior Center volunteers, while Young Manufacturing sponsored the meeting. Door prize winner was Dr. Kelsey Johnson, and Business in the Spotlight was O.C. Monitor.

The next meeting is set for Feb. 18 at the Senior Center.

The chamber presented Ohio County FBLA with a check to cover the cost of 15 students to compete in a regional competition next month. Adam Saalweatcher accepted the check from chamber treasurer Chase Vincent.
