The question of whether Findlay should help pay for a workforce development coordinator for the area was brought up at Tuesday’s Findlay City Council meeting. The Courier reports Councilwoman Holly Frische said the agreement to pay $30,000 to the position was never fully agreed to by council members. She added that the money could be better spent on other city services.
Service-Safety Director Paul Schmelzer talked about the issue after the meeting. He said council seemed to be willing to help pay for the position when the subject was first brought up. He added an ordinance asking for $30,000 will likely appear on the next council agenda. It will then be referred to the Appropriations Committee for further discussion.
Mayor Lydia Mihalik said having a workforce development coordinator will help Findlay stay competitive in attracting potential employers. The coordinator role is part of a larger joint effort between many local agencies to provide qualified workers to area businesses.
