TIFFIN — The Seneca County Board of Commissioners is to meet at 10 a.m. Thursday at its office, 111 Madison St., for a regular meeting.

During appointments, at 10 a.m., the commissioners are to consider an annexation petition. At about 10:15 a.m. the board is to hear from DLZ, an engineering and architectural firm, on the Seneca County General Health District entrance renovation project at the County Services Building.

In June, the county entered into a contract with DLZ for the engineering and design work for an upgrade to the entrance. The wall where the entrance to the building is located pre-dates 1865 and needs repair.

The renovation project would address safety and would also bring the entrance into full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The commissioners were joined by several community partners, including the Seneca County General Health District and the city of Tiffin, in requesting state capital budget funds for the project. DLZ representatives will discuss the project and will provide renderings during the meeting.

In other action, personnel from the Tiffin-Seneca Public Library will discuss the upcoming Community Read for 2020. This year’s youth book is The Seventh Most Important Thing by Shelley Pearsall.

The adult selection is The Soloist by Steve Lopez. Both books focus on the power of music and art. The highlight of the Community Read will be visits by both authors.

In addition to multiple school visits, each author will give a community presentation that is free and open to the public.
