Treasurer appointment, facilities master plan on commissioners’ agenda today

Seneca County commissioners are to talk about appointing an interim treasurer and hiring a firm for a facility master plan when they meet at 10 a.m. today at their office, 111 Madison St.

An interim treasurer must be appointed by Feb. 1 to replace Damon Alt until the Republican Central Committee decides on a new treasurer Feb. 7. Alt is leaving the office to become a court magistrate.

Also on the agenda is the facilities master plan, which is a blueprint for the future of all county-owned buildings. Last week, the board received estimates from CT Consultants and Gossman Group for the architectural and engineering work. The commissioners are expected to choose a firm and move forward with the plan.

Also today, the commissioners are to hear from Doug Smith, of IAP Business Services, about House Bill 295, an energy savings bill.

They also are to hear a year-end review from Seneca County Dog Warden Kelly Marker.

The board also is expected to consider repairs on equipment at the Seneca County Airport, appointing members to the Museum Advisory Board, authorizing the sale of a 2007 Ford Crown Victoria, a contract for medical services with Dr. Chris Sears on behalf of Seneca County Sheriff’s Office and a contract with Vanguard-Sentinel Career Center for GED instructions for Seneca County Jail inmates.

• A $90,021.80 supplemental appropriation to the County Engineer’s Maintenance and Repair Fund for equipment.
