A budget modification, because of a $610,000 grant, was approved. The grant funds will offset a portion of the architectural and construction expenses related to the partial relocation of a call center slotted to employ 400 people. Glenn Nealis, the county’s economic development director, and Jim Thomson of the Industrial Development Association were lauded for their participation in the effort to bring this business to the county.
New Corporate Compliance Officer for Public Health Donna Jones was introduced to the board.
“The compliance officer reviews and evaluates compliance issues within the public health organization,” said Bonnie Hamilton. “All supervisors can go directly to her with any concerns.”
Six new incoming supervisors were welcomed and encouraged to speak their mind.
Outgoing supervisors were recognized for their work. Especially noted was Don Smith, town of Franklin Supervisor for 23 years at the town and county level. Don Smith also received a plaque from Cornell Cooperative Extension.
