Wood County awarded funds for demolishing blighted homes PDF Print E-mail

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has awarded more than $3.8 million in additional demolition grants to 87 Ohio counties. The additional grants were a reallocation of unrequested funds from the Ohio Attorney General's "Moving Ohio Forward Program."
Wood County will receive $29,265.
"The Ohio Attorney General's Moving Ohio Forward Program has been successful in helping the many Ohioans who were victims of neighborhood blight caused by the foreclosure crisis," said DeWine. "By demolishing abandoned, blighted homes, we have been making a real effort to help stabilize neighborhoods and remove public safety hazards. I am pleased to make these additional funds available so counties can demolish additional structures."
DeWine designated $75 million of Ohio's settlement share for the demolition program, allocating funds to each of Ohio's 88 counties based upon the percentage of foreclosures that occurred in that county between 2008 and 2010, the period of the settlement. In Phase One of the grants, counties were required to provide matching funds for any grant above $500,000. However, several counties did not apply for their full allocation, leaving $3,820,826 in unrequested funds.

A Haskins man who pleaded guilty to a number of charges in December was sentenced to 30 months in prison Friday.
Keith M. Stetler, 19, appeared in the courtroom of Wood County Judge Alan Mayberry.
Stetler pleaded guilty to grand theft when the property is a firearm, two counts of burglary, receiving stolen property, one count of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance, and one count of voyeurism.
The grand theft, burglary, and receiving stolen property counts stemmed from 2012 incidents at the homes of his parents and his grandmother in Haskins, and a residence in Weston. The remaining charges stemmed from video Stetler reportedly took on his phone of a then-16-year-old girl who was in a state of nudity.
