COLUMBUS: State Representative Dorothy Pelanda (R-Marysville) has announced that the State Controlling Board approved the release of $150,000 for improvements to the Central Ohio Youth Center in Marysville. Additionally, the Controlling Board released $130,000, to Algaeventure Systems, Inc., for new machinery and equipment.

The funds provided to the Central Ohio Youth Center in Marysville will be used for the administration addition project and renovations of the existing facility at the Center (formally known as the Five County Juvenile Detention Center).

Algaeventure Systems, Inc., a new business located in Marysville, Ohio, asserts that, with the provision of state funds, will create 200 new full-time jobs in Marysville, with average hourly wages of $25. They have developed technology to take algae from its wet state and transform it into a “dry, combustible” state. This will allow algae to be used as a bio-fuel.

"Preserving jobs and creating job opportunities for our Ohio citizens is my number one priority as a state legislator. These two new projects represent positive economic growth in our community, and I will continue to strive for more job creation in our district,” Rep. Pelanda said.
