Board to finish re-organizing, discuss opportunity center upgrades

[Tiffin, OH Jan. 14, 2019] – The Seneca County Board of Commissioners are to meet at 11 a.m. Tuesday at their office, 111 Madison St.
During new business, the commissioners are to finish re-organizing for 2019, by selecting a vice president and finalizing committee assignments. Last week, Commissioner Shayne Thomas was chosen as president of the board.
Last year’s committee assignments are available on our website. You can find last year’s assignments here.
At the beginning of the meeting, Lewis Hurst, of the Seneca County Opportunity Center, is to address the commissioners and discuss building improvements at the opportunity center. The improvements will be of no cost to the county.
In other action, the board is to receive estimates from two contractors for a county facilities master plan. CT Consultants and Gossman Group have submitted estimates for the architectural and engineering project that would map the future of all county buildings.
Commissioners also are to discuss seeking an appraisal for property near Seneca County Airport that is owned by Airport Operator Brad Newman. The Federal Aviation Administration recommends that the county purchase some or all of Newman’s property so the airport doesn’t become landlocked.
Near the end of the meeting, the board expects to enter into an executive session to discuss pending litigation.

During appropriations, the board is to consider:
* A $1,328 supplemental appropriation to the Record Equipment Fund.
* A $31,611.77 supplemental appropriation to the County Sewer District Fund.
* A $29,900 fund advance from the General Fund to the County Community Development Block Grant 2017 Fund.
* The disposal of a 2004 Ford Crown Victori, a 2007 Ford Crown Victoria and a 2005 Ford Crown Victoria.
* A contract with the Lucas County Board of Commissioners for the Lucas County Coroner to perform necessary autopsies and toxicology reports for 2019.
* Establishing the ability to dispose of unneeded, obsolete or unfit county-owned property by means of online auction for 2019, retroactive to Jan. 1.
