Local Hiring Debate Resurfaces In Response to ODOT Outreach, Training For Cleveland Project

The debate over local hiring preferences for state-funded construction projects continued Monday when Controlling Board members considered a Department of Transportation proposal to connect Cleveland-area residents with jobs.

Sen. Bill Coley (R-Liberty Twp.) and Sen. Chris Widener (R-Springfield) objected to the ODOT request to spend $250,000 to contract with a Cleveland company that will promote job training and readiness information to residents who live near the Opportunity Corridor Project.
