Do you already
The rule requiring Susquehanna County employees to wear identification badges didnt last long.
Passed on the first anniversary of the terrorists attacks in New York and Washington, the county commissioners rescinded the motion by a 2-1 vote. Commissioner Lee Smith cast the dissenting ballot.
"What do you do about departments that refuse to wear the badges?" Board Chair Gary Marcho asked. He said the commissioners could not insist that the badges be used because department heads are also elected and that makes their offices independent and exempt from rules enacted by the commissioners.
Mayor Kelly reported good news at the November 26 meeting of the Susquehanna Boro Council; the boro has qualified for additional grant funding for its sidewalk renovation project. The grant, in the amount of $169,000, would require matching funds from the boro at an 80/20 split; the would be responsible for $34,000. The total amount, she said, is very small compared to other grant funds the boro has received, but it would enable extending the sidewalk project to West Main St. "Well go as far as we can (with the project) over the next two years," she said. "I dont think were going to see this kind of funding again, its becoming more difficult to get."
