The Muskingum County Port Authority made a move to promote manufacturing growth in Muskingum County.
The Port made a move to create the Targeted Manufacturing Training Incentive Program. The board set aside $50,000 that can be used to reimburse companies for their training costs.
The money is an incentive for current companies to hire more people or to attract new companies to the county. It's not usual for counties to take this approach.
