There is no Meeting ID to enter to listen to Thursday’s meeting.

Meeting Agenda

Commissioners are meeting on a Thursday this week because of their attendance at a webinar as part of the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania annual conference, held virtually this year.

Public Comment sections will be allowed toward the beginning and end of the meeting. The first Public Comment session must only pertain to items on the Agenda. The final Public Comment section can be on any topic and lately has dealt with the George Halcovage scandal, the County’s desire to purchase the former GIANT grocery store in Pottsville, and the County’s use of its CARES Act allocation.

On the Agenda this week:

  • Approving Drug & Alocohol Dept. contracts
  • Fall Clean-up Information
  • Applying for a DCED grant to fix two bridges in Tremont
  • Approving contracts for Children & Youth Services
  • Approving a Human Services contract
