Commissioners consider energy zone

Seneca County commissioners are to look at two measures, one which could reduce costs and another which could help bring revenue to the county.

During a meeting at 10 a.m. today, commissioners are to consider a resolution setting Seneca County as an Alternative Energy Zone, which would reduce taxes levied on renewable energy generation. Commissioners have been working with Sandusky County commissioners to create the zone as requested by Nordex, a firm proposing a wind farm project near Bellevue involving the two counties.

Commissioners also are to discuss the county’s health insurance. In past meetings commissioners said they have considered instituting flexible spending accounts and other cost-saving measures in the health insurance program.

In another matter, the board is to sit in on bid openings for projects at the Seneca County Engineer’s Office and Seneca County Agency Transportation.

Also, commissioners are to take part in an assement hearing for a Port Authority Group Ditch Project.
