NEW KNOXVILLE — Last year, the village of New Knoxville utilized the village’s largest Street Improvement program in 20 years to repair nine area streets, all thanks to a public works grant through the Ohio Public Works Commission.
This year, Village of New Knoxville officials do not anticipate receiving any grant dollars from the state, but plan to focus their efforts on two significant projects. The first project will help a local business, New Knoxville Telephone, Inc. (NK Telco), expand into two village owned buildings adjacent to NK Telco’s main plant.
