Camden Receives $100K Grant from Ohio for Phase 2 Town Hall Renovations

Camden Council was recently notified by former State of Ohio representative J. Todd Smith, that the Village of Camden has been approved for $100,000 grant funding toward their phase 2 renovations to the historic Camden Town Hall.

The funding is part of $1.1 million grant funding Representative Smith was able to secure for several projects in Preble County communities.  “Preble County always gets the short end of the stick, and I made that clear” to the chairman of Ohio’s budget committee, Smith said. (A full list of funded projects are in the letter provided by Rep. Smith below.)

Camden completed extensive structural and interior repairs and renovations to the Town Hall in 2018, much of which was also grant-funded, but the second floor remodel was not part of that Phase 1 project. The current planned renovations to the second floor include constructing activity and meeting areas that can be utilized or rented out for weddings, receptions, dinners and other events.

Mayor Moss and council members expressed their sincerely appreciation to Rep. Smith for his hard work in securing this much-needed funding for phase 2 of the Town Hall renovation and for all the projects funded in Preble County.
