 Encino Energy is partnering with Monroe Township Trustees and Caroll County Energy to bring a new playground the Delllroy community.
Officials from the three agencies gathered Sept. 16 at Dellroy Community Park to break ground for the new playground.
The $10,000 donation through Encino’s Community Partnership Program is a part of the company’s ongoing commitment to being a good neighbor in the communities in which it operates.  
“We’ve worked tirelessly to secure the funds needed for this playground, and it’s nice to see this vision come together,” said Brian McIntire, Monroe Township Trustee. Encino Energy has worked with us every step of the way to make this playground a reality, and we greatly appreciate their financial investment, as well their time in working with us through the process and now into construction.” 
In order to fund the rest of the construction and installation of the equipment, the Monroe Township Trustees received $75,000 in state Capital Bill funding with the other contribution coming from Carroll County Energy.  
Merritt Brown, Facility Manager from Carroll County Energy reflected on the importance of seeing this project come to fruition. “We have employees living in the area who have children that we think would really enjoy this. Giving these families the chance to promote healthy living and spend extra time together is a good way to bring the community together.” 
The playground coming to Monroe Township will mark Encino’s third playground project funded by its Community Partnership Program.  
“This is exciting. The Monroe Township playground marks the third playground safety project Encino has invested in over the past four years,” said Jackie Stewart, Director of External Affairs for Encino Energy. “The Monroe Township Trustees and Representative Don Jones deserve all the credit today. It was their vision and advocacy in Columbus that makes today possible. In addition to Encino’s financial contribution, we also intend to provide in-kind services as we work to construct this new playground with the township, and we look forward to cutting the ribbon with a community day as well.”
