Training, rail trail project on Clinton County agenda
LOCK HAVEN — The Clinton County Commissioners’ work session Monday morning addressed plans for a rail trail project and funding for law enforcement training.
Teresa Sparacino, of Delta, a national consulting firm who has been retained by Lycoming and Tioga counties to apply for the Build Grant for their rail trail projects, made a presentation.
Sparacino asked the commissioners to join their effort and contribute to the cost of the BCA (benefit cost analysis.) She said the cost of the BCA is $44,000 with Lycoming paying $25,000 and Tioga and Clinton counties would pay $10,000 each.
She said applications are due by the end of May and that a regional approach from the three counties would increase chances of getting the grant.
“It always does,” Commissioner Jeff Snyder commented of the regional approach increasing chances of getting grants.
Snyder said the topic of lack of funding for training of sheriff’s deputies was discussed at last week’s meeting of the County Commissioners Association of PA.
Snyder said he will talk to Clinton County Sheriff Kerry Stover for more information on what’s happening in Clinton County.
