Briarfield of Milan eliminates jobs

MILAN -- The Briarfield of Milan nursing home eliminated seven dietary staffing positions and switched to an outside contractor to staff their kitchen and dining area.

The staffing is now being handled by Cover 2 Staffing, out of the Columbus area.

The change was made to provide a more restaurant-style dining environment, Briarfield administrator Jessica Short said. She also said the new system is not any cheaper.

The previous kitchen and dining area employees were given the opportunity to apply for their jobs with the contractor. Six applied and three were hired, Short said.

Go Mini's opening dealership in area

SANDUSKY -- Go Mini's LLC, the Jacksonville, Fla.-based portable moving and storage business, is opening a dealership to serve the greater Toledo and Sandusky area.

"We are excited to be able to offer this revolutionary new moving and storage system to our customers in greater Toledo and Sandusky," owner Randy Ramhoff said.

"The rest of the country is realizing the ease that this self-service moving system offers, and we're pleased to be able to bring this new convenience to our customers."

The storage business provides rentals of portable moving and storage containers delivered to a customer's driveway for easy loading and moving of household goods or businesses. Customers needing to place goods in storage either short or long term do not need to load and unload since the loaded containers can be stored at the Go Mini's central storage.

The area dealership is owned and operated by Ohio Mobile Self Storage LLC, which also owns a Go Mini's dealership serving the Columbus area. Other Ohio dealerships are located in Akron, Canton, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Youngstown.

Go Mini's has 199 dealerships in 47 states and Canada.
