A joint resolution between the boards of commissioners of Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Centre, Fulton, Huntingdon, and Somerset in support of an application for a Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency grant was signed by Fulton County commissioners Pete Lynch, Stuart Ulsh, and Rodney McCray at their weekly meeting July 31. The grant application is asking for $4,968,843.01 in funding for the counties’ joint 9-1-1 Regionalization efforts.

Seleen Shives, Conservation District manager, met with commissioners regarding several matters, including issues that arose at the recycling center on July 29. They also discussed a potential electronics recycling event in October, but an exact date has not been set. Due to lack of funds, there will not be a household waste recycle day this year. There will be a recycling update made to township officials at their annual convention on Oct. 8.

After a recommendation from President Judge Van Horn, the commissioners approved the transfer of Lanette Deneen from the probation office to the Office Deputy 1 position at Magisterial District Judge Heming’s office in Needmore effective Aug. 6.

The commissioners approved a McConnell Park lease agreement between the county of Fulton and Pleasant Ridge Church of the Nazarene for Aug. 26 through Aug. 31 for a community church service, including music. In addition, approval was given for use of the park on Mondays at 8 a.m. July 13 through Aug. 20.
