COLUMBUS — The Ohio State Controlling Board approved on Monday a $100,000 Rapid Outreach Grant for Technical Rubber Company Inc. in Johnstown.
Technical Rubber, manufacturer of tire repairs and associated products, committed to create 29 full-time jobs, according to State Rep. Jay Hottinger, R-Newark, a member of the controlling board.

The company also distributes tools and accessories such as wheel weights and valve stems used in relation to the tire business.

“Technical Rubber Company is such an important employer of the community,” Hottinger stated in a news release. “I believe this investment will enable the business to continue to grow and provide quality jobs to the village of Johnstown and Licking County.”

Rapid Outreach Grants are used to acquire machinery and equipment, acquire or construct buildings, improve infrastructure, invest in fixed assets, and more, according to Hottinger.

US 62 and Oregon Street Traffic Signal Update

The Village has received many phone calls asking about the status of the flashing traffic signal at US 62 and Oregon Street. We believe the signal malfunctioned May 4th and promptly called ODOT. It was determined by ODOT the responsibility is the Village’s to repair the signal. As soon as it was determined the signal was our responsibility, the Village ordered the parts needed to repair the signal. We expect to have the signal operational by Wednesday, May 16th, at the latest.
