Planning Commission Sets Calendar

When the Susquehanna County Planning Commission met on December 17, they voted to meet in 2003 on the last Tuesday of each month, with the exception of December when the meeting date will be December 16. They also concurred that if schools are closed on that day because of inclement weather, the meeting will also be canceled and moved to the next day at the regular meeting time.
