Commissioners to talk parking and investments this morning

Seneca County commissioners are to meet at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the commissioners’ office, 111 Madison St.

Potential parking development in new areas is to be discussed. Commissioners also are to talk about the implementation and enforcement of new policies in county lots. Green parking spaces are to be used by county personnel only during business hours (7 a.m.-5 p.m.), while yellow spots are for anyone to use but are limited to two hours.

In other business, Commissioner Shayne Thomas is to update the board on the county’s investment portfolio, and commissioners are to discuss moving or canceling the Sept. 18 meeting. County Administrator Stacy Wilson said only one commissioner is available Sept. 18.

During new business, the board is to discuss bringing in special counsel to guide the commissioners through the Ohio Power Siting Board process related to the development of wind projects in Seneca County.

At about 10:30 a.m., Tiffaney Shaver, of WSOS, is to give an update to the board on the Community Housing Improvement Project. The program aims to help residents who don’t have the resources or ability to make repairs to their homes.
