Election board member retiring
Fredrick has been with the board as a full-time clerk for 11 years. Her responsibilities include tracking absentee voting, processing local liquor license options, processing provisional voter ballots, and working with maps of the county’s 44 precincts.
“The board will miss her greatly as they seek to find her replacement,” said JoAnn Friar, director of the board.
Resumes will be accepted until Dec. 3 at the board office in the Veterans Memorial Building, 8444 W. State Route 163, Suite 101, Oak Harbor, O. 43449.
The higher rates go into effect Dec. 1, according to Wade Kapszukiewicz, county treasurer.
The rate in December will be 4 percent. Next year it will rise to 12 percent; 8 percent for August and 4 percent for December.
Property owners can avoid the interest penalties by paying delinquencies or enrolling in a payment plan with the treasurer’s office before Dec. 1.
A new state law authorizes the rate increases for counties that have implemented Land Reutilization Corporations, also known as land banks.
Land bank programs are used to acquire and demolish or renovate properties as well as assembling land parcels for economic development.
Szollosi, who represents the 49th House District, said the legislature’s priority will be putting Ohioans back to work.
The board will meet for a regular meeting at 6 p.m.
