With a new fiscal year comes project recommendations from the county's planning department, and the emphasis this year is on the area's senior centers.
During a board of commissioners meeting Tuesday morning, Tracy D. Gerber, serving as Community Development Block Grant [CDBG] coordinator for the county, discussed several tentative projects.
"The Bennetts Valley Senior Center project is now finally out for bid and it's been several years in the making," said Gerber as she indicated advertisements for bids were first published Saturday.
District manager Robert Dippold resigned from the Elk County Conservation District on Tuesday, Jan. 11 after working for the district for over 20 years.
â€śMost of you know, I met with Bob [Dippold] to discuss some of those issues and the following week he tended his resignation,â€ť said conservation district chairman Russ Braun. â€śAs a result of a performance review, he decided to hang it up.
â€śWith that being said, we need to start searching for a new manager.â€ť
