Lubrizol Corp. is helping an Ohio community build a park to honor a longtime public official.
Wickliffe, Ohio-based Lubrizol has donated $80,000 to help build the public park in Painesville Township, according to an article in the Feb. 18 edition of the Lake County News-Herald.
The park will be named after Angelo Cicconetti, a former township resident who served as Lake County dog warden for many years and later served as a township trustee until his death in 2011. Angelo's son Michael served as a local judge, while his grandson Gabe is currently a township trustee. Michael and Gabe Cicconetti also have donated to the park effort.
Lubrizol has operated a plant in the township since 1956. The plant makes specialty additives for lubricating oils. Lubrizol's Advanced Materials unit is a major producer of thermoplastic polyurethane and other specialty plastics.
"I am thrilled that one of our longtime Painesville Township businesses continues to be a giving member of our community," Gabe Cicconetti said in the article. "[Lubrizol's] generosity proves their dedication to our community. This project wouldn't be possible without them."
The park is expected to open by the end of 2021.
