NAPOLEON — Henry County is currently accepting bids for the relocation and resurfacing of County Road Z.

The project was discussed during Tuesday’s meeting of the board of commissioners.

The estimated cost of the road improvements is $550,000, according to bid documents. Work will take place on County Road Z from Township Road 15 to County Road L, and on County Road L from County Road Z to County Road 14.

A portion of the project will be funded by the Local Transportation Improvement Program as administered by the Ohio Public Works Commission.

Sealed proposals will be received at the office of the commissioners, 1853 Oakwood Ave., Napoleon, until July 2 at 10:20 a.m.

According to the Henry County engineer’s office, the estimated project completion date is Oct. 15, weather permitting.

In other business Tuesday, landfill manager Mike Imbrock gave the board an update on that facility.

Last month, the transfer facility accepted 180.57 tons of solid waste, 75.28 tons of tires and 3.82 tons of brick/asphalt/concrete, according to Imbrock’s report.

Litter roundup 2019 is complete in the county; 507 people participated, cleaning 153 miles of roadway. Volunteers collected 2.34 tons of litter, along with 26 tires and a mattress.

Also Tuesday, the board heard that the county received $45,345.55 back from the County Commissioners’ Association of Ohio’s group retrospective rating program following an evaluation in December.

It is estimated Henry County could receive $93,174 of Gov. Mike DeWine’s $1.5 billion proposed for Ohio employers following a year of strong returns on Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) investments. Henry County’s BWC premium due will be $129,892.

The Henry County commissioners will meet again Thursday beginning with a 9 a.m. executive session to discuss personnel.
