The Huron County commissioners have approved two construction projects at county buildings that will cost nearly a total of $64,400.

The first project approved during Thursday’s meeting was replacing 10 windows each at the county office building, 12 E. Main St., and next door at the Huron County Courthouse. Being replaced are the windows on the courthouse basement and the west side of the first floor of the office building.

Capitol Aluminum & Glass Corp. will perform the work for $28,700.

“They did the other windows, so they will all match,” Commissioner Terry Boose said.

Also approved was replacing the low, flat roof at the back of the county administration building, 180 Milan Ave. Damschroder Roofing Inc. will perform the work for $35,691.

In other action, Pete Welch, the Huron County director of operations, said 95 percent of the work on the air-handlers at the sheriff’s office is complete. The project cost $382,788.

“They are finishing up the insulation on it,” Sheriff Todd Corbin told the commissioners. “No problems.”

Also, the sheriff said the replacement of the showers in the jail should start today (Friday). The project is expected to cost about $96,000.

“We are moving in the right direction,” Corbin said.

In other action:

• The commissioners amended the human resources/loss prevention assistant from a full-time position to a full-time/part-time position for 20 to 40 hours beginning June 25.

• Clerk/administrator Vickie Ziemba announced the new commissioners website has gone live. The address is www.hccommissioners.com.

“Way to go, Vickie,” said Commissioner Skip Wilde, who gave her a fist-bump.

“You get an attagirl,” Boose added.
