Williams County JFS To Recognize Longtime Employees

By: James Pruitt

It was a mixed bag of actions and meetings Monday, June 27, 2016, for the Williams County Board of Commissioners.

The three-member panel took care of some housekeeping resolutions, address the need or lack thereof for assessments on a couple of ditches with Defiance County and heard from its Jobs and Family Services Director.

JFS Director Fred Lord talked about reinstating the monthly meeting and service awards for employees. Several people have reached 30 years of service in the past 12 months with little to no fanfare, he said.

“It’s been awhile since that happened,” Lord said. “We will try not to leave anyone out.”

The board received two bids for the 2016 chip seal contract. The engineer’s estimate was a little more than $186,000. A Wauseon firm bid $149,329.90 and a Genoa company bid $148,649.80.

The engineer will review the bids and come back with a recommendation.

The board approved some money transfers for the sheriff to cover salaries and overtime.

The Clerk of Courts had $27,000 transferred from various accounts to the Capital Assets-land improvement fund for the Siebenaler Construction/Adkins Fencing project east of the one-step facility.
