County Tackles Tuesday Agenda

By Chanin Rotz-Mountz

The Fulton County commissioners worked through their agenda Tuesday before travelling to Sinoquipe Scout Reservation to dine with organizers and participants of the annual Fulton County Camp Cadet.

County recycling coordinator Greg Reineke was among the individuals to appear before the commissioners on June 4, speaking about the future of county recycling and sustainability planning for the electronics recycling program. Reineke informed the commissioners regarding a warehouse available for rent adjacent to the American Legion in McConnellsburg that could potentially be used as a recycling center. In order to fund renting this facility or any other location, the commissioners discussed various funding options such as Marcellus shale money that can be used for conservation-type projects.

Since the inception of the electronics recycling program over a year ago, Reineke has collected six trailers of recyclables.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) coordinator Karen Hann conducted a public hearing to review the final statement of objectives for the fiscal year 2013 CDBG allocations. The commissioners gave a nod of approval for Hann to move forward with the application process that could bring $212,000 to Fulton County for the Needmore sewer and water systems as well as the McConnellsburg Senior Center.

The commissioners also signed CDBG project agreements with Brush Creek Township and Hustontown Volunteer Fire Co.y for handicapped accessible upgrades.

An agreement was penned with McConnellsburg United Methodist Church for use of county facilities on the following dates: Mc- Connellsburg Senior Center, June 12, July 24 and August 28; and Mc- Connell Park on June 26 and August 7.

Two general sales agreements were signed with Tele-Plus for additional items for Magisterial District Judge Wendy Mellott’s security system totalling $200 and a $395 hands-free door intercom system for the sheriff’s office.

Treasurer Monica Seville was granted permission to landscape the area between the courthouse and the sheriff’s office.

An application for liquid fuel funding from the Todd Township Board of Supervisors was approved as submitted in the amount of $756.
