LEAD PAINT HAZARD
The City of Newark Department of Development administered a lead hazard education and mitigation program with assistance from the Environmental Protection Agency, The Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. From 2009 through 2011 the program used grant funds to educate Licking County residents and community service agencies on the hazards of lead and on safe renovation practices. Grant money was also used to conduct lead inspections and to mitigate lead from Licking County homes.
