Kelbley, who is completing his final term as judge after decades of public service, and long-time Tax Map Office employee Dawn Fitch, who is retiring after 32 years with the county.
It is also the final scheduled board meeting for Seneca County Commissioner Mike Kerschner.
At about 10:30 a.m., the commissioners are to meet with County Auditor Julie Adkins. Adkins joined the commissioners earlier this month to make a financial request. Adkins requested an additional $22,000 to cover increasing expenses for administering the sale of dog licenses, which are expected to generate about $24,472.50 for the Auditor’s Office in 2023. The Dog and Kennel Fund, which is used by the Seneca County Dog Warden’s Office, will receive the rest of the funding generated through the sale of dog licenses, per the Ohio Revised Code. The commissioners said earlier this month they would research the issue further before hoping to decide on Tuesday.
