Convening Tuesday morning before attending the Fulton County Partnership luncheon, the Fulton County commissioners dealt with a small list of agenda items, including penning a letter of support for the submission of grant paperwork.

The commissioners signed off on the letter regarding their support for an Emergency Solutions Grant being submitted to the Department of Community and Economic Development. The grant application is being overseen and completed by the Center for Community Action, which was represented at the commissioners’ meeting by Executive Director Wendy Melius.

CCA is requesting $50,000 in its two-year grant application to provide homeless prevention services to Fulton County residents. Residents who are at risk of being homeless or are currently homeless can receive assistance through the program. Certain guidelines must be adhered to by program participants.

In addition to writing a letter of support, the commissioners also adopted a resolution in the matter.

The commissioners approved a contract with P&W Excavating for the completion of maintenance work on county-owned Bridge #1 located in Taylor Township. The contract is in the amount of $10,136.80.

Funding totalling $3,864 has been accepted from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency for the the position of juvenile victim witness co-ordinator.

A plan of action from Tom Morisi of Keller Engineers was accepted as presented to the commissioners. The “scour critical bridge” place of action pertains to county-owned Bridge #3 in Thompson Township over Licking Creek Township.

Tammy Bair, Jean Snyder, Misty Kobel, Julie Dovey and Commissioner Irvin Dasher were appointed to serve a oneyear term of office on the Tuscarora Managed Care Alliance Steering Committee.

The commissioners recessed at lunch and were slated to reconvene the following day.
