Another year has come and gone and for the City of Findlay. Physical changes were made and according to Mayor Lydia Mihalik economic growth can also be felt. Mihalik said she is proud of the the record amount of reinvestment that she saw in 2017 that sparked a memorable year for Findlay.

"We had a great capital plan," Mihalik said. "We had a lot of new business come to Findlay and Hancock County, but we also had a lot of existing businesses that did a tremendous amount of reinvestment in their own buildings or staff. So that they could continue to compete and be competitive within the market."

Namely, Campbell’s Soup Company and Autoliv-Nissan brakes announced the construction of facilities, in 2017, which is sure to expand upon the growth and jobs in Findlay. Mihalik praised Findlay's efforts around the work force in the past year as well and recognized the work done through the Raise the Bar Coalition. She said she couldn’t be happier about what came of 2017.

"Life is going good for us. We are very thankful for the investment. We have record amount of square footage invested in the Findlay and Hancock County community. Record amount of dollars and a record amount of jobs as well. Things went well for us in 2017 and really for ’18 we anticipate that trend to continue. "

Among 2018’s plans, Mihalik looks forward to a coordinated improved public safety system. In conjunction with Hancock County and the sheriffs department, all public safety entities in the county will be able to share information on one system, including computerized dispatch and a records management system.

"I think that’s going to pay big dividends for us, relative to the ease of access of information, the ability to free-flow sharing of information. Within a law enforcement setting that’s really good, but also it will help improve our ability to just provide public safety relative to firefighting and those types of things."

Mihalik also looks forward to the first ever Miracle League All-Star Game which is to be held in Findlay in September.
