Here’s video from the Schuylkill County Commissioners Work Session meeting held on June 19, 2024.

During the Work Session meeting, Commissioners heard proposals from various department heads for contract approvals. 

Among the more notable contracts proposed is one from Ondeck Concrete, of Schuylkill Haven, to replace the exterior steps at Schuylkill County Prison for $32,433.

They’ll also consider a proposal froM Cresswell Brothers, a contractor, to do renovations at the Mental Health office at 410 N. Centre St. in Pottsville at a cost of $145,524.

There are also numerous contract proposals for the Children & Youth department that Commissioners heard.

    I wonder why Commissioner Hetherington is paying more attention to the “audience” or attendees at the meeting versus turning directly towards our American Flag, paying due respect, during the Pledge of Allegiance?

    I appreciate the speakers from the public who attend these meetings to speak up for the rest of us. As taxpayers, we are concerned about county spending, possible tax increases, lack of services, nepotism, suffering veterans and senior citizens. Thank you.
