Public A "No Show'' At Town Meeting

More meetings scheduled by commissioners; next gathering set for May 7
By Chanin Rotz-Mountz STAFF WRITER

Armed with a Power Point presentation and an array of information related to upcoming and ongoing area projects, Fulton County commissioners Bonnie Mellott Keefer, Daniel Swain II and David Hoover II gathered at the Hustontown Senior Center last Thursday evening for their second town meeting of 2009.

Unfortunately, for the second straight year, members of the public were a no show at the town meeting in Hustontown that was designed to give input from a county level and also answer questions about issues relevant to northern Fulton County.

Discouraged at the lack of participation from county residents in 2008 and 2009 at that particular location, talks on the matter could result in a change of venue for the commissioners to another northern area of Fulton County, such as Waterfall.

The next town meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on May 7 at the Big Cove Tannery Lutheran Church. Additional meetings include:

• June 4 at Burnt Cabins Auction Barn

• July 2, Green Hill Sewing Club

• August 6, Union Township Building

• September 3, Wells Tannery Community Center

• October 1, Needmore Bible Church Fellowship Hall

• November 5, Warfordsburg Senior Center

• December 3, McConnellsburg Senior Center.

All meetings begin at 7 p.m. For more information on any meeting, residents can reach the commissioners' office by calling 717-485-3691 or by e-mail at commissioners@ co.fulton.pa.us.
