The Ohio School Facilities Construction Commission and Ohio Facilities Construction Commission met to reorganize for the biennium January 22nd, voting to keep Budget Director Tim Keen as chairman and Administrative Services Director Robert Blair as vice chairman.

Keen said while the commissions previously authorized him to direct the process of naming a permanent replacement for now-retired Director Richard Hickman, he’s not made much headway given his work on Gov. John Kasich’s third biennial budget proposal, due in less than two weeks.

Keen said he expects to be able to do more once the budget is released, and said the panels are being well-served now by David Chovan, the interim director.
