The total project cost is estimated at $13 million, and the second river bridge is marked for $6 million from TRAC.

The commissioners also:

•Met Justin Barnhart, who will be a candidate for the appointment to the Ohio House of Representatives seat which is vacant due to Rob McColley’s appointment to the Ohio Senate.

•Met in executive session with legal counsel regarding matters required to be kept confidential.

County offices will be closed Monday in observance of Christmas.

There are no appointments scheduled for Tuesday.
