During new business, the commissioners are expected to present a 2020 year in review PowerPoint.
The board also is expected to continue a discussion on potential salary/wage increases for General Fund employees.
During last year’s budget cycle, the commissioners agreed to defer a decision on raises due to the uncertain economic climate brought on by COVID-19. Due to positive economic indicators, including the first two sales tax reports of 2021, the board agreed last week to consider increases to General Fund personnel lines.

During new business, the board is to consider:
* A $59,411.70 supplemental appropriation to the County Coronavirus Relief Distribution Fund for equipment.
* Authorizing amendment #2 for the Engineering Services Agreement with Stantec for taxiway repairs at the Seneca County Airport.
