WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center will receive $5.2 million to extend a sewer line at the facility, U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Howland, announced Tuesday.
The money was secured as part of the Fiscal Year 2014 government spending bill which is expected to pass this week. Ryan is a member of the House Appropriations Committee, the panel responsible for writing the bill.
Camp Ravenna, the old Ravenna arsenol, has been transformed into a training ground for multiple military branches. It straddles Trumbull and Portage counties.
``Camp Ravenna is a critical component of both our national defense and our local economy in Northeast Ohio,'' Ryan said. ``Securing this money improves the long term prospects of the base and will allow this facility to be an even better place to train for our servicemen and women.''
