There will be a public meeting to review the updated risk assessment at the Fulton County Planning Office in the lower level of the Services for Children Building, 219 North Second Street, McConnellsburg, PA, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. on January 27, 2015.

Seville of the Fulton County Planning Commission at 717-485-3717.



Notice is given that in accordance with the Act of December 19, 1996, P.L. 1158, 53 Pa. C.S.A. §§2301-2316, relating to Intergovernmental Cooperation, the counties of Bedford, Blair, Fulton and Huntingdon desire to enter an intergovernmental agreement to share existing assets within their own Emergency 9-1-1 systems and provide back up to other 9-1-1 call centers in the event of a mechanical problem or disaster in order that emergency calls can still be processed. Additionally, the foregoing counties want to explore leveraging resources and funding in a manner where each county would still remain financially responsible for their own operations and make actual purchases of capital items, but the counties will cooperate in sharing and use of such capital items.

The Fulton County Board of Commissioners will consider the Ordinance approving the Intergovernmental Cooperation Agreement on January 28, 2015, at 7 p.m at the EOC Conference Room, 219 North Second Street, Suite 106, McConnellsburg, PA 17233, a summary of which is as follows:

Each county shall authorize and direct its director of Emergency Services to regularly attend meetings with the other directors of Emergency Services from the participating counties to communicate, plan, strategize and make recommendations to their respective boards of commissioners.

Each county shall designate one commissioner liaison to attend such meetings as are called amongst the counties for the purposes of communicating, planning and receiving recommendations from the directors of Emergency Services from the counties prior to submitting any recommendation to the boards of commissioners for the counties for approval.

The agreement requires approval of the provision of backup for 911 calls and/or sharing of equipment to be approved by each county by resolution. Further, to the extent cost sharing is involved, such resolution shall set forth the terms of any payment from one county to another county specifically including the amount and frequency of such payment and how such payment shall be adjusted.

With respect to grants or other funding that some or all of the counties desire to strategically utilize, a resolution shall be passed in a public meeting by the boards of commissioners of the participating counties designating a single county as the applicant, supporting the countyapplicant’s application and approving how the capital resource being funded will be shared or utilized as between the counties along with any cost sharing.

All employees shall continue to be employees of their regular employing county, and there shall be no joint employees.

To the extent necessary under the PSETA, in the event that some or all of the counties engage in backup and sharing as provided for above, any county performing any action under the PSETA on behalf of another county, such performing county shall be deemed to have been delegated such authority by the other county. As a matter reciprocal to the responsibilities and duties delegated in this agreement, each county, its elected and public officials and employees shall have the same immunities from liability, the same limitations on damages, the same rights and benefits, and the same powers as would be had by, preserved to or applicable to a municipality, its employees, officers and officials under the provisions of the Political Subdivisions Tort Claims Act [Subchapter C of Chapter 85 of Title 42 of The Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, Act 142 of October 5, 1980, as amended, 42 Pa. C.S.A. §8541 et. seq.], and/or under provisions of any other Pennsylvania law or any federal law, now or hereafter enacted which provides for immunities, limitations, rights, benefits, or powers in connection with the subject matter of this agreement.

The agreement shall become effective for each county hereto when each county, by ordinance of its board of commissioners, adopts and approves the agreement, and authorizes the president and/or vice president of the board of commissioners to execute the same and the chief clerk to attest to the same. Any county may withdraw from this agreement at any time, by ordinance approved by board of commissioners with an approved/ executed copy of such ordinance provided to the other counties at least ninety (90) days in advance of the time of withdrawal.

The full text of this ordinance may be examined during the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the office of the Fulton County Commissioners, 116 West Market Street, Mc- Connellsburg, PA 17233.
