Seneca County Commissioners open several bids for roofing project, hire new HR Director
Tiffin, Ohio – The Seneca County Board of Commissioners received six bids for a roofing project during Thursday morning’s session.
The project is to replace the shingle roof on the buildings that house the Seneca County Department of Job and Family Services, the Seneca County Engineer’s Office, and the Seneca Park District. The buildings are located just south of Tiffin, near SR 100 and US 224.
The bids received were as follows:
- Midstate Contractors, from Marion, for $ 389,800
- JB Roofing, from Tiffin, for $ 393,738
- CRM Roofing, from Clyde, for $ 349,719
- E. Lee Construction, from Delphos, for $ 339,960
- Damschroder Roofing, from Fremont, for $ 303,042
- ACI Advanced Concept Inc., of Canal Winchester, for $ 441,697.
John Logsdon, Seneca County buildings and land supervisor, must review the bids before anyone gets the contract for the project.
In another action, the commissioners agreed to hire Jaime Wolfe as director of the newly created Human Resources department.
Wolfe has worked in the HR field since 2013, including her most recent stint as a Human Resources Specialist for the Sandusky County Board of Commissioners. The HR office will be located in the County Services Building in the former Public Guardian’s Office space. Wolfe will start her new position on June 7.
In previous years, the commissioners had allocated money for the eventual establishment of the bureau. The new agency should help improve and organize personnel functions while reducing liability to the province.
During County Administrator Stacy Wilson’s report, the commissioners received a positive update on the county’s income tax receipts.
The province received $ 822,871.44 in May. The collection for the month reflects sales tax data for part of February and most of March. Wilson said the number represents an increase of about 23 percent from the same period in 2019. She did not compare the figure to 2020 because of the economic complications from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through the first five sales tax returns of 2021, the province has collected approximately $ 4.25 million. This figure is about $ 830,000, or 24 percent, higher than the amount raised in the first five months of 2019. In other cases, the commissioners informed the public that they had signed and sent a letter to Tiffin Columbian Boys Tennis Coach Chip Weingart congratulating his team on ending an unbeaten season in the Sandusky Bay Conference. The board also wished the district performers the best of luck this week, including the New Riegel Softball team that will play in Oak Harbor on Friday for the district title. The council also hosted two joint ditch maintenance hearings, one with Sandusky County and another with Sandusky and Wood County. Review the following resolutions that have been approved for more information.

- An additional $ 6,000 credit to the Community Chest for board member travel.
