Economic development info for Tiffin and Seneca County, Ohio
Seneca Success Mobile Monthly
Issue 4 - May 2014
The search is on!

We were thrilled to launch our search for a new Downtown Development Coordinator last week, a critical position on our team as we seek to reenergize and refuel downtown revitalization. The great downtown organization Tiffin Tomorrow was officially integrated into SIEDC at the annual meeting on April 3, and this is another important step as we begin our journey to become an Ohio Main Street community.


Information on the position is available at; it has been posted on Heritage Ohio, and WTOL in Toledo has covered it, too. We are accepting resumes through May 7, which should be sent to me via email.
