Every year since 2009, Lycoming County commissioners have authorized a $2.5 million line of credit for Lycoming County Children and Youth Services to be able to pay their bills.
This year was no exception, and they approved the financing deal Thursday with Citizens & Northern Bank to fill a gap between when the agency's bills are due and when it is actually paid by the state.
The line of credit is used to pay Children and Youth Services bills on time, according to Commissioner Jeff Wheeland.
Any interest accumulated by using the line of credit is eligible to be written off, he said.
Commissioners also approved an agreement that sends recyclable material from Selinsgrove Borough to Lycoming County.
Dave Bonus, county Resource Management Services operations manager, said containers would be picked up two or three times a month from that municipality.
A contract for global positioning equipment and maintenance to be used at the county landfill also was approved by commissioners. Bonus said the service allows landfill machinery to achieve about 12 percent more compaction rates, enabling more waste to be transferred to the facility.
A $283,031 contract with ACS, of Dallas, Texas, for document digitization for the Register and Recorder's office was approved.
Additionally, a $133,169 document automation service contract for use in the Prothonotary's office was approved.
Reappointments to two authorities were made.
Bill Martin, Ryan Tira and Chris Logue were reappointed to the Williamsport Municipal Airport Authority and George Girio was reappointed to the Lycoming County Housing Authority.
