Loan approved for sewer line extension

Lycoming County commissioners Tuesday approved a $1.5 million loan to fund sewer line work in Clinton Township.

The low-interest loan allows the West Branch Regional Authority to extend the line along the Route 15 corridor.

“Our loaning them the money will speed up the process,” Commissioner Rick Mirabito said. “Our goal is to bring in more business.”

A number of businesses are located in the area and construction of a Sheetz convenience store is under way next to the Pike Drive in.

County officials noted that the loan will preclude pursuit of a PennVEST loan, which they claim can be a long and difficult process.

In other matters, commissioners approved amendments extending deadlines with the city of Williamsport for the Rental Rehabilitation Project and the Historical Property Rehabilitation Program.

Commissioners approved a five-year $166,539 agreement with Priority Dispatch for fire and police software license, support and maintenance as required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Commissioners officially proclaimed May as Mental Health Awareness Month.

In other matters, commissioners approved:

• An amendment with Green Machine Sales, LLC to update labor and travel rates for maintenance with single stream recycling equipment.

• Purchase of a truck with accessories from Susquehanna Motor Co., Inc. for Resource Management Services.

• A Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding program grant application with the U.S. Department of Justice for $58,008.
