Three flags are on schedule to be up before Memorial Day near the northwest corner of Court and North Washington streets, Seneca County commissioners stated during their board meeting Monday.
"We plan to fly the U.S. flag, the POW flag and the Ohio flag," Board President Ben Nutter said. "The flagpoles will be made out of recycled content."
About $5,000 will go toward the flagpoles, which were purchased from Centec Cast Metal Products in Fremont, County Administrator Tanya Hemmer said.
Nutter announced a $27,577 funding appropriation that will in part cover the flagpole purchase.
In addition, $22,000 of the funds will be used to furnish the new youth center, Hemmer said.
It wasn't decided at the time whether the $27,577 appropriation was coming from a $50,000 fund set aside by the Ottawa, Sandusky Seneca Solid Waste Management District for use on recycled product, Hemmer said.
In new business, the Seneca County commissioners approved:
Supplemental appropriations for the Sheriff Commissary Fund.
Supplemental appropriations of $44,855 to the General Fund, which includes $27,577 for supplies and a $17,278 contract for Clinton Fire for services to the Sycamore area.
10:45 a.m. May 10 at the Seneca County Commissioners office to receive sealed bids for proposals for transportation services for the Seneca County Department of Job and Family Services.
A contract service agreement between Seneca County, Seneca County Agency Transportation and Arlen Lowery for project manager services of the SCAT Rural Transit Facility.
Board President Ben Nutter to sign a U.S. Department of Agriculture letter of intent to meet conditions and request for obligation of funds for the Bascom Area Wastewater Project and the New Riegel Wastewater System purchase, retroactive to April 13.
A participation agreement with County Risk Sharing Authority, a property and liability insurance pool for county employees, established by the County Commissioners Association of Ohio.
The money may come from Construction, Demo and Debris fees.
Hemmer said CDD fees often come from contractors who pay to drop off large amounts of debris.
Flags and lights should be ready to be installed by the beginning of May.
"The commissioners are expecting to receive the flagpoles, lights and flags in all at once," Hemmer said. "We will have Clouse Electric help along with the county maintenance workers to perform the electrical installation."
Commissioners would like the project completed before the Memorial Day Parade.
