- During the weekly meeting of the Wayne County Commissioners, it was found that one of the county detectives was resigning.
Chief clerk Vicky Botjer read a letter stating that Christian Robinson will be resigning, effective Oct. 1.
She did not give any details about the resignation.
• Botjer said that the commissioners were asked “to be a sponsor” for the local share grant and there were two applications to discuss.
The first was for Lackawanna College in the Hawley Silk Mill, for “expansion of education facilities for culinary and hospitality program.”
Botjer said this would include teaching kitchen and dining room courses. The amount requested is $1,200,000.
The second application was for the South Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority for “emergency generators at well/sewer pumping stations” within The Hideout community.
The amount requested was $290,000.
Both applications were approved by the commissioners.
• The bid for the Balls Eddy Bridge scour repairs was awarded to T. Brennan Heavy Equipment in Carbondale for $24,000.
• Two letters of support were requested from WEDCO and Clinton Township.
WEDCO is working to get an LSA-Monroe County Grant to help with a “multi-tenant building at the Sterling Business and Technology Park.”
Clinton Township is working to get an LSA-Monroe County Grant to get a sidewalk on Route 247 in Browndale.
The commissioners agreed to provide letters of support to both.
• The use of the Park Street Complex was approved for election day on Nov. 5. This will be a poll area for Honesdale #2.
• Kimberly Hartzell of Tafton was hired as a part time 911 Dispatch/Training at $10.50 per hour, effective Sept. 30.
