DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - The city of Dayton picked up $1.35 million on Tuesday from the Ohio Bureau of Worker's Compensation.
The money is a refund from the bureau after streamlined operations and strong investments boosted the bureau's assets to level so high that it can return some of those funds.
A total of $124 million will go to various companies, local governments, and schools in Preble, Montgomery, Darke, Miami, Clark, Greene, Warren and Butler counties.
"We used to have real concerns about the amount paid to the Bureau and called it a barrier. Some even called it the silent killer of jobs. That's just not the case anymore," said President & CEO of the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce Phil Parker.
Area employers should be on the lookout for their rebates in the mail.
