The Henry County Commissioners met with representatives from the Toledo-LucasCounty port authority concerning an agreement that could provide a funding avenue for smaller projects. Commissioners from Defiance, Fulton, and Paulding counties were part of the dialogue with HenryCounty. The Toledo Port Authority might deliver better accessibility to grants when projects are under 5-million dollars.
HenryCounty is utilizing a geographic mapping system for several departments, including engineer and auditor. Commissioners are looking to upgrade the system, and are considering hiring a programmer and IT coordinator to assist.
