Commissioners to consider use of impact fee money, other matters

Funding to relocate water and sewer lines near the site of the proposed YMCA facility in Williamsport is expected to come before the Lycoming County Commissioners for approval during their regular weekly meeting Thursday.

A total of $180,000 in state natural gas impact fee money is coming to the county for infrastructure purposes, William Kelly, deputy director of the Lycoming County Department of Planning and Community Development, told commissioners during their work session Tuesday.

Kelly said the project will benefit both the YMCA and expansion of the Williamsport Regional Medical Center.

With matching funds the project will receive a total of $360,000.

Commissioners are expected to act on a bid from Fairbank Scales for $65,307 to replace a scale at the transfer station.

It was the lone bid submitted.

Commissioners are expected to vote on a one-year contract with Superior Plus for fuel.

Other action before commissioners will include selling of surplus property, an engineering services contract and funding for the juvenile victim witness coordinator.

Mya Toon, grant purchasing and property manager, said surplus property amounts to a car from the Pre-Release Center and a truck cap.

B.K. Control, of Montoursville, is seeking to provide engineering services at a cost not to exceed $28,700 for site lighting repairs.

Funding for the juvenile victim witness coordinator amounting to $21,710 comes from a grant through the state Commission on Crime and Delinquency.
