GLOUSTER - A proposed community center could be getting a financial boost from the federal government.

The Senate Appropriations Comm-ittee approved $250,000 for renovation of a former prison site in Glouster, where the center would be established. Legislation including the appropriation must be approved by Congress and signed by the president, according to U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown.

The community center will be a room housed in the former Glouster boot camp, which was built by the state of Ohio but never used because of a lack of funds. The building is being used by the Hocking-Athens-Perry Community Action Agency, which will share the building with the community center.
