At about 10:15 a.m., the commissioners are to host a visit with local wrestling standout and Tiffin Columbian High School Senior Brody Conley.
The board will talk to Conley about his season and his future plans and will also present a proclamation to the star grappler recognizing his storied wrestling career.
Conley finished the 2022 season with an unblemished 53-0 record, becoming the first wrestler in Tiffin Columbian High School history to achieve two state titles. He is one of two Columbian wrestlers to ever win a state championship.
Conley finished his career on a 119-match winning streak and was 198-11 across all matches. Conley recorded 156 pins, and his two state championships are added to a 4th-place state finish as a freshman wrestler.
Conley is committed to wrestle under the tutelage of Tim Flynn at West Virginia University next year.
During old business, the commissioners are to continue discussions on prioritizing state capital budget project requests. Last week the commissioners narrowed down their focus to two projects: the renovation of the East Tower which would lead to county office space and a collaboration with Vanguard-Sentinel Career and Technology Center to create a training facility for emergency medical personnel. Although these were considered the top two projects that the commissioners hope to receive state funding for, a meeting is to be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday to learn more about the projects and consider which is the top priority.
A package of information including details about the projects and support letters from various entities concerning the capital requests was sent to state legislators Friday.
During new business, the board is to consider:
• A $384.30 supplemental appropriation to the DRETAC Fund (Treasurer) for employee salaries.
• A $10,000 supplemental appropriation to the Public Assistance Fund for supplies
• A $226,665 supplemental appropriation to the Ambulance Service Fund for the replacement of an ambulance.
• A fund advance repayment from the Wolf Creek Ditch Fund to the General Fund.
• Establishing the OneOhio Opioid Settlement Fund.
• The IV-D service Contract between county courts and the Seneca County Department of Job and Family Services.
• The recommendation of the tax incentive review council’s findings regarding enterprise zone and community reinvestment area tax abatements for companies in Seneca County for tax year 2021.
• The ODOT road salt contract for 2022 on behalf of the county engineer.
• An agreement with Bloom-Scipio Joint Ambulance District effective Nov. 30, 2021.
• Waiving the 3-percent increase for 2021 for Seneca County Sewer District retroactive to Jan. 1, 2021.
