Geauga County Commissioners to Misspend CARES Act money

By: Confused Resident

The CARES Act provides fast and direct economic assistance for American workers and families, small businesses, and preserves jobs for American industries. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress with overwhelming, bipartisan support and signed into law by President Trump on March 27th, 2020.


The Geauga County Board of Commissioners will hold a special meeting on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. to be held in the Commissioners’ Chambers, 470 Center St. Building #4, Chardon, in regards to the consideration of approval of a Resolution of Acceptance Approving CARES Act Expenditures for the proposed amount of $1,105,930.13 for the County Engineer’s Office for the purchase of 4 chainsaws, 6 snow plow trucks, 1 Ford 550 quad cab mechanics vehicle, 1 mini excavator and for Job and Family Services for the purchase of a GMC Acadia SUV.

How does any of this money being spent go for public health or assistance related to Covid-19?

One thought on “Geauga County Commissioners to Misspend CARES Act money

  1. Geauga County is one of the wealthiest counties in Ohio. It also has a high percentage of educated residents. How is it that out of 93,000 people we have three commissioners spending our money and not a single one of them has a college education? Can’t we do better than that? Shouldn’t there be some kind of educational requirements necessary to spend taxpayers’ money?
