The Richland County Commissioners Tuesday approved a $360,000 Workforce Investment Act contract. Job and Family Services Director Sharlene Neumann says the program serves 150 teens in Richland County, and 50 in Crawford County. She says they're eligibile by coming from low-income families, and are placed in summer jobs. The teens are also given help obtaining their G-E-D's, if necessary, and are given money-management instruction.   The WIA program is administered by the Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center, which Neumann says regularly exceeds state standards. The contract takes effect August first and runs through next July.
