The Delaware County Board of Supervisors have approved collective bargaining agreements with three groups of county employees.
At their meeting Monday, the Board approved a two and a half percent wage increase for the Secondary Roads Department. The Board also approved a half a percent wage increase for the Sheriff’s Office deputies to keep up with the Sheriff’s wage, plus an additional two and a half percent for the deputies, as well as the jailers. The agreements are a one year contract.
Also on Monday, the Delaware County Supervisors approved a proclamation declaring May as Mental Health Awareness Month.
The Board also approved closing Main Street in Colesburg for a short time the night of Sunday, July 4th for the town’s annual Fourth of July parade. A detour will be in place from 7 to 8 pm that day.
And Delaware County Engineer Anthony Bardgett says contract rock has been going down on gravel roads in southern Delaware County this past week, with more areas of the county set to get rock this week.
