Delaware County Supervisors Meeting Recap

The Delaware County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing Monday on the first reading of the Local Option Sales and Services Tax ordinance. In November, voters approved to extend the tax for another ten years from 2020 to 2029. There were no public comments at the hearing. The second and possibly final reading will be held at the next Supervisors meeting.

Also at Monday’s Delaware County Supervisors meeting, the Board heard a presentation from Manchester Police Chief Jim Hauschild on renewing the 28E Communications Agreement for the Dispatch Center. It will come before the board for approval in the coming weeks.

The Board of Supervisors also heard a presentation from Ryan Roach to update the phone system among most of the County buildings. He says the County will begin seeing savings in about three years. The Board will review the proposal before making a decision.

And the Board has appointed Delaware County Tourism Director Caryssa Philgreen to serve as a representative for the County on the Limestone Bluffs RC&D Cultural Council.

The Delaware County Courthouse will be closed for the holidays next Monday, December 25th and Tuesday, December 26th, so the Supervisors’ next meeting will be held Wednesday, December 27th at 9 am.
