At about 10:05 a.m., newly appointed Tiffin Mayor Dawn Iannantuono is to visit the meeting so the board can congratulate her on her new position as she completes the term of former Mayor Aaron Montz.
At about 10:15 a.m., a representative from First Energy/Ohio Edison is to join the session for an annual update and to answer any questions the board has.
The commissioners have an executive session scheduled for 10:45 a.m. and a work session scheduled for 11 a.m. The work session is to be focused on the county’s capital projects list.
In March, county administrative staff presented a list of about 35 prioritized capital project requests to the commissioners. The list was created after County Administrator Stacy Wilson and County Building & Grounds Maintenance Supervisor John Logsdon presented 114 project requests to the commissioners earlier in the year. Of the 114, 68 had price estimates equaling more than $15 million.
The board previously agreed to move forward with the top 10 projects on the list, including the top priority, the construction of a new Agricultural Services Building. On Thursday the board will continue to discuss the priority list and how it has changed, while also discussing updates on previously approved capital projects that are currently underway and deciding what other projects could receive funding.
At about noon, the commissioners are to congratulate Hopewell-Loudon graduate and standout athlete Sherron Jones with a proclamation for winning three state championships in Track. Jones was victorious in the 100, 200 and 400-meter races at the state meet earlier this year.
