Ottawa receives $2 million grant for industrial park development

Posted by wlpo on October 19, 2011

If you’re a business looking for a place to build, Ottawa has land.

Several dignitaries joined Ottawa Mayor Bob Eschbach Wednesday to announce a $2 million federal grant to build things like water and sewer, a road and rail spur at the industrial park.  The city needs the infrastructure to attract new business or allow current businesses to expand in the industrial park.

Eschbach says the grant was years in the making and the city still needs to figure out where it’s going to come up with its $2 million match.  Congressman Adam Kinzinger and State Senator Sue Rezin both praised Eschbach for having a vision in creating jobs.
