Comms approve bonds refinancing for public water, sewage projects

Lycoming County Commissioners Thursday approved refinancing of bonds to help fund capital projects for water and sewage.

The refinancing package is expected to result in a cost savings of at least $150,000 for the Lycoming County Water & Sewage Authority.

The Authority approved the refinancing at its meeting earlier this week to take advantage of lower interest rates for borrowing.

Commissioners took action on personnel matters.

Eric Fortin was approved as probation supervisor at an annual salary of $70,892.

Commissioners also voted to hire:

• Nathaniel E. Kendall and Trevor E. Campbell as correctional officers at $16.81 per hour.

• Paul R. Young, emergency management specialist, $41,929 per year.

• Riley Thomas, part-time replacement resident supervisor, $14.14 per hour.

Commissioners approved change orders totaling $8,200 for work connected to flood mitigation needs in McIntyre Township.

Commissioners approved a $25,000 agreement between the public defender’s office and Dr. William A. Cox for forensic pathology work and other medical expertise needed for court cases.

An agreement was approved between the Lycoming County Sheriff’s Office and local municipalities to allow for the bulk purchase of flares needed at emergency sites.

The next commissioners meeting is set for 10 a.m. Tuesday in Executive Plaza, 330 Pine St., Williamsport.
