County Handles Routine Agenda

By Chanin Rotz-Mountz


The Fulton County commissioners attended to multiple routine agenda matters over the last two weeks, including appointments to local boards and the approval of several service agreements.

A request for liquid fuel funding was approved in the amount of $1,350 as submitted by the Belfast Township Board of Supervisors.

The commissioners signed off on a letter of commitment to participate in a Regional Shared Services Assessment, which will study alternatives for supplying a public safety answering point for 911 calls here in the Fulton County.

A purchase-of-service agreement was accepted with Bethanna Inc., which will provide services as needed to the Services for Children and Juvenile Probation offices.

Several individuals were appointed by the commissioners to serve on the Fulton County Library Board of Directors effective July 1, 2013, and ending June 30, 2016. Those appointed include Marilyn Paylor, Spence Perry and and Susanne Reed.

Serving as the Fulton County Board of Elections last Tuesday, the commissioners met briefly during the morning hours to approve a service agreement with Smiths Detection of Edgewood, Md., in the amount of $3,179 for Xray system service.

The commissioners gave a nod of approval to a letter of certification for an in-kind space cost share match for the Nutrition Awareness Program.

An additional agreement was penned with McConnellsburg United Methodist Church for use of McConnell Park on June 16.

The commissioners approved the submission of a grant funding application from the Victims of Juvenile Offenders program.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) administrator Karen Hann presented the commissioners historical information on the amount of CDBG funding received to date as well as projects funded in Fulton County since 2000. Discussion was also held on the projects requesting CDBG funding for 2013.

The commissioners sat down with EMA/911 Director Ruth Strait, who discussed the county animal response team (CART) trailer that had been previously titled to the State Animal Response Team (SART). SART, according to Strait, would like the county to hold the trailer’s title due to a funding shortfall. No formal action was taken until this week when the commissioners agreed to accept the trailer’s title and registration.
